After spending two hours on chat this weekend , being passed on from the "Loyalty Team" to the "Tech Team" and back to the "Loyalty Team" and back to the "Tech Team" I am not surprised that I got nowhere.
We moved to TalkTalk after being with SKY for 6 years after a so called great deal on Black Friday. Promised speed by the tech team for our line is minimum 39 Mbps and maximum 54 Mbps, I am on the minimum speed inspite of having opted for Speed Boost which we are paying extra for, the tech team reset my router to default settings twice and that is all they did and with obviously no improvement in our "Faster Fibre" speed. Being with TalkTalk for just one day and the tech team gave me the scripted jargon "The minimum guranteed speed is 39 Mbps" to which I said I am happy with that but thats why I have speed boost which should give me more speed. I recorded the chat support and I can post the same if anyone is interested.I asked to cancel my speed boost and refund me the amount as I wasnt getting any extra speed to which I was told I am not going to get a refund and if I cancel my speed boost my current minimum guranteed speed will go down even more....what???? I had heard horror stories about TalkTalk and can confirm that I am in the middle of one of them.

Thanks! The Tech Team definitely needs training and the Loyalty team is supposed to keep the customer interested and offer a solution not just cancel the subscription and leave the customer frustrated. If you get a chance and have access please read through the chat logs on my account with the Online Chat Team, you will be surprised how different and frustrating the experience is compared to you guys.

Glad the speed has improved now.
If a customer upgrades to the faster fibre, turning the router off for 20 or 30 minutes allows the current session to end and a new session to start at the higher speed.
Apologies this was not advised earlier.

Update - I looked at the other threads on the forum and tried shutting down my router for 30 mins, glad to report that my speed now is 46 Mbps. I am happy with that and can confirm HD content on Netflix doesnt blur out like before. This issue can be marked as resolved
