how long before broadband upgrade kicks in?

Hi

I've just (24h ago) upgraded to the m200 package, it shows the upgrade as complete, but when I speed test, it's coming in at 60/70 meg?

How long should it be before the new (200 meg) speed kicks in?

 

Thanks

Re: how long before broadband upgrade kicks in?

Speed test must be done wired, not over wifi. Confirm how you tested please.

Mine was upgraded overnight within 24hours.

Check the router configuration file if upgraded ..should be like this

No. Direct from the Hub to a PC/laptop using a wired connection.

Go to 192.168.0.1 and do NOT login.  There should be a link for Router Status and the information is there.
