Re: Dire Speed paying for Top Package

Depends where in the west midlands you are, I am in Area 04 Rowley Regis and have had over utilisation issues since December 2014 and still waiting for it to be fixed.

Take a look at my thread link below along with my 12 so called REVIEW dates.

You have 2 options stay and keep asking for bill credits or leave and get BT Fibre if available to you.

Good luck and I hope you don't have to wait to long for a fix.

Re: Dire Speed paying for Top Package

That's good - I get anything from 56kbps to 2MBps in the evenings.

 

Most probably overutilisation - if you're now already aware here's what will happen.

1. They'll apologise
2. They'll give you a fault code and a date in the future when it will be reviewed
3. They'll move that date
4. They'll go back to step 2.

Rinse and repeat.

Re: Dire Speed paying for Top Package

Hi PubZombie,

I am honestly sorry for the slow peak time speeds you've been experiencing. The amount of simultaneous Internet users at peak times is the cause and a network upgrade, to increase capacity, is required to resolve this. 
This type of issue can have a lengthy lead time - what normally happens is that a review date is provided and, if the pre-upgrade work hasn't completed by that date, a new date will be given. 
I've sent you a PM (purple envelope icon, top right of page) outlining your credit options.
Thanks for coming to our Forum for help with this, we shall at least keep you notified of progress.

Re: Dire Speed paying for Top Package

Hi All,
Received a message the other day saying this is now resolved but I'm still suffering downtime and massive speed loss - I have replied to the message I had but received no reply.
Anybody else still have oversupscription issues? VM must be doing very well in my area

Re: Dire Speed paying for Top Package

Bumping this as asked to by moderators.
I'm still getting frequent drops of service and speeds. Meant to be on the top package but frequently as low as 7mb download and several outages a day combined with loss of catchup to services.
Can I have my credit reinstated please
Thank you for your time.

Re: Dire Speed paying for Top Package

As well as Internet and catchup we are now also losing tv channels with the error 'insufficient signal strength ' displaying on screen
