My BT Infinity fibre went live yesterday and I did a speed check which shows an upload of 10 and a download speed of 40. BY says there is a ten day optimisation period whilst it settles down. I am happy with those speeds though even so they say it should reach 14 and 53.

And as per Argyll's post how much ??

I am not too sure until the next bill. I pay £50 odd now including line rental and the only thing different is the fibre. I think it was about £6 more a month, I was not paying attention to Miss India in the call centre and zoned out :lol:

My package Unlimited Broadband with BT Infinity 1, Unlimited usage, up to 52Mb download speed, Unlimited BT Wi-fi minutes, Online storage with BT Cloud, BT Parental Controls & BT Web Protect. We set the parental control on when the grandchildren are here.

I will let you know what the new amount is when I get billed next?

"My BT Infinity fibre went live yesterday and I did a speed check which shows an upload of 10 and a download speed of 40"

Sounds like you have a 40/10 tariff( and are probably quite near to the street cabinet). It's true that Broadband does take time to "settle", but can go up as well as down!

I got my first new bill. I think because I signed fro 24 months I get a discount for the 2 years. The bill was £35 including line rental and all the other stuff. So in fact it is faster and cheaper? Shirley something wrong here :lol:
