I've upgraded my broadband plan a couple of weeks ago with 2degrees from Fibre 100/20 to Fibre 900/400.

 

How long does it take until I get the new speed?

 

Do I have to wait until my next billing period which is later next month or can I get it now? I've been told that it changes at the start of my next billing period however I would like to get it sooner rather than later, even if it means paying the difference between my current plan and the new plan ($25).

Have you called them and requested they action it sooner?

They processed my entire sign up (change from another isp) in a couple of days.

I think you need to follow up on this.

Yep, the person who picked up said "that it is not possible due to the way their billing system works" so I have to wait 1 month until I get my speed boost as I upgraded about a day or two after my last billing period just ended.

 

Even when I said they could charge the difference ($25) they said it's not possible :( even though it would be profit for them as I would lose a few days.

That doesn't sound quite right... when I first got a UFB connection I called them and immediately ordered the 1000/500 (as it were back then) and the profile was active 12 hours later. I'd follow up on this

Hey @temp8934 

 

Like plan changes, speed boosts are usually actioned from your next billing date. 

 

Flick us a PM with your full name, DOB and address and I can check if we can get this one pushed through asap.
