have been on 750 service for some time, wich has been excellent. It should now be upgraded to 2mb, which when I check with customer service they say it has, which it hasn't. Tech support say it should have been but locally may not have been started! I am in wiltshire area. anyone else any ideas please?

Do you receive your Broadband from a set top box or a cable modem?

Are you sure about this, only I am with Blueyonder and the deal here put it up from 750 to 1MB for free. not as you say to 2MB.??Alternatively if you have paid for the 2MB service contact the online support tool and they will do it for you online.hth.

I get NTL broadband with a cable modem. I telephoned them a few days ago and asked when the upgrades were due. The operator upgraded me there and then from 750KB to 2MB. All he asked me to do was to reboot. I have since run a speed test and get an average speed of 1933KB

I was on 1.5 meg last month (£37.99), changed to 750k(24.99) which was then upt to 2 meg at no extra charge. Bill came thru this morning for £23 credit.....no payment due.

I have been onto Blueyonder and told them about the offer on NTL. they have no plans to upgrade for free and if you want it it will cost us £16.00 per month more.I told them they can get s@"$%^d if they think this charlie is going to pay that, and when I complained customer services kindly upgraded me for free. HA HA the customer is king.

P.S. try it.
