Following a discussion now with a Tech from Telstra a 'side- effect' of transferring from PDQ to the new Home Plan is a s follows:
They disconnect your existing Account with no warning
Your new account is then Activated, but in the 'Default low speed Launch Mode' anytime up to 48 hours after your previous account was disconnected
The faster plan is then queued to be assigned to your new account up to 48 hours after your lowspeed Launch Mode was activated.
Is this fair and reasonable or am I being justifiably really pissed at Telstra Clear?
