      Re: im getting max in 24hrs

      Yeap, Glad to here of people migrating over, Hope it is smooth, But il be really suprised if it is 24Hrs, As surely it will be longer, As its like moving BT to a LLU operator, Which is a disconnection and re-provide via LLU and dont those take a few days...?

      If I remember correctly, when I initially went from BT's IPStream to LLU the downtime was roughly 30 Minutes

      should be the same for you too

      It's happened sometime today when I was at work. Seems ok so far 15323 down 764 up. Good line att but pings have gone up despite being on fast ( sssshhhh ). This seems to confirm my theory in a different post that its routing that may be causing the ping problems ? Will post some detailed stats after giving it some hammer tonight - lol

      To change from Connect to MAX etc means an Engineer visit to swap the cables over.

      Whoever told you 24 hours, either does not know the procedure, or told you a porkie pie.

      It would take on average about 10 days.
