Re: [Merged] BB Speed Upgrades

OK just to clarify for some who may not have read into it the 1mb users are being upgraded from 1st September right?

150 and 600k is from the 1st August

Re: [Merged] BB Speed Upgrades

No that's not correct at all peacedude2k4, all users on cable modems are being upgraded from August 1st no matter what their level of service. All users on set top box modems are being upgraded from September 1st.

No change in Cardiff, but wasn't expecting any on a Sunday.
Works are usually done Monday night/Tuesday morning.

Re: [Merged] BB Speed Upgrades

Are you sure about stb users dev since although their boxes might have been upgraded to the Samsungs I was under the impression that their speed upgrade would not be until September.

According to this , everyone apart from the 1meg stb users are getting upgraded from the 1st August. It's just the 1meg users in september.

yep, see http://www.cableforum.co.uk/article/...upgrades-begin

there is no reason why stb users should be upgrading at a different date except the 1mbit users due to needing new boxes
