      I wish I knew what they were planning. I upgraded to pro but my download is only slightly increased. My upload has shot through the roof though to 18. I wouldn't pay the extra 10 if there was a 40/10 package. I have until the end of the week to change my mind and go back to 40/2 without penalty. Decisions

      Ok, I just called to downgrade to 40/2. It will take effect in the next 72 hrs. Also, everybody on 40/2 is getting a free upgrade to 40/10 by the end of July so thats works perfectly for me.

      No need to apply. They are doing it in batches of 500 and customers will be notified by email. He also said new customers are being provisioned on 40/10 although from what date i don't know.

      If anyone has tried Google Play Music then you'll be well aware of how beneficial a faster upload would be.
