Your Speed boost is ready

Hi all

When I log into my account I get met with this:

Your speed boost is ready!

We can power you up to a faster broadband speed right now.

No strings. No catches.

Now....Being an old cynic, is there REALLY no catch? I'm quite happy as I am at the moment and the speed is normally really good so it's not something I desperately need.

Has anyone got any ideas what this is all about or if it's is worth it? And more important; Is it really "No strings, no catch" 

Thanks Smiley Happy

Re: Your Speed boost is ready

I don't see the word 'free' there.  When I was told my speed boost was ready it was clearly stated that it was free and I went from the 50mbps service to the 70mbps service at no extra cost ... it has since been boosted again to 80mbps with no announcements.

Re: Your Speed boost is ready

Thinking back Chris, you should also receive an email at some stage after that announcement which should make it clear whether what is on offer is free.

Happy New Year.

Re: Your Speed boost is ready

If you are being offered an upgrade to 70Mbs or 150Mbs then its the free speed boost as these two are only available to existing customers getting a free upgrade. You don't say which package you are on so its not certain if this is the case or not.

If its an offer to 200Mbs it may be a recontract.
