It usually takes 24 hours to update the BT wholesale database. If your phone went live today the BT wholesale database should reflect this tomorrow.

The reason why you were all told/shown 3.5mbps is i believe because you are on SVBN equiptment.
The line speed calculator for SVBN doesnt go right all the time.
