I upgraded on 24/03/20 via live chat to a new deal that included Fibre Speed Boost at a discounted rate. Previously I was on "Faster Fibre" on got consistent speeds of 40mbps, a contract I signed last year and is up in May this year.
After being told on the chat that the speed boost would kick in in 30 mins, my speed then dropped to 38mbps as the downstream speed i received. After numerous live chats, no one can help and i am on the verge of cancelling and moving elsewhere - anything anyone on here can do before I join another provider.
A few points i've seen on previous threads about this which will save any additional questions:
- My line is capable of speeds far in excess of 67mbps as i've had them with other providers
- The "Fibre Speed Boost" shows in My Account
- I have restarted my router normally, restarted it and waited 30 mins and also reset it by pressing the reset button for 15 seconds
-My downstrean sync speed is 38mbps - meaning regardless of how many devices i have connected, I'm not being provided with the 67mbps i'm supposed to have in the first place.
- My upgrade went live the same day and this is reflected in my account
- Webchat colleagues say the boost is live, although it obviously isnt.

In the interim could you remove the Fibre Boost from my account? Doesnt seem alot of point paying for it at current.
Thanks again for your support, you've been really helpful

The speed may increase further but unfortunately we can't arrange engineer visits for speed faults at the moment as we are only arranging home visits for total loss of service faults for vulnerable customers. We can raise this for an engineer visit once the lock down is over and we have more engineer availability to the property.

Apologies for the delay.
I've checked the connection stats and the line is in sync at 38.3mb.
If you had a power cut then DLM may have started the monitoring process again after this. We can remove the fibre speed boost if you would like us to arrange this?

Please can someone from TT get back to me with an answer? I need to cancel this upgrade in a couple of days if the service I’m paying for can’t be provided as I’m working from home and need the additional speeds that I upgraded to.

Thank you 🙂
Please can you post back here on Saturday and I will check the connection stats again to see if DLM has made any changes to the line profile/speed.

I'm sorry to hear this.
There are re connections showing on the line and this can affect the sync speed.
Would it be possible to connect the router at the test socket for 48hrs, without rebooting the router? We can then check to see if DLM starts to increase the sync speed.
