Any way to see that status of plan change?

Hey guys, I have recently found out that Bigpound now allows me to get ADSL2 - was always stuck with ADSL.

I looked into it and still preferred the exetel prices over them so thought I would just change plan.. But I can't see anywhere to check if it was accepted/rejected or what stage it was on.

Can someone give me direction on how I can get it checked please?

Only reason is it's coming to the end of the month and would like to try and get ADSL2 hooked before the end of next month.

should show in your user facilities if it went through, I changed plans not long ago and what I wanted wasn't shown but just called up sales and they did everything over the phone, very easy and went through without a hitch

The plan change will generally come into effect at the start of you next billing cycle. :)

If you could PM me your service number I could have a look at the exact dates for you.

Your plan should change over on the 28th of March as this will be the start of your new billing cycle .

So despite my page stating:
Request Date: 2013-03-22
Current Plan Type: T8-50
Requested Plan Type: ADSL2-R-500
New Contract Period: 12 Months
Effective Date:
Changing Status: PENDING
Exetel Submit Your Application To Telstra On This Date: 2013-03-22
that will all change tomorrow and I'll then be on ADSL2? In a way pending is just saying it's waiting till it becomes the 28th?

as far as I know what you're showing there is what it should be showing, never known it to be different to that

as far as I know what you're showing there is what it should be showing, never known it to be different to that, status pending is normal until it comes into effect

just in case you were't already aware your plan details should roll over and show your updated plan on that date but the physical changeover can take (up to) 2 business days to get done, it requires a tech to go to the exchange so work load is often the determining factor as to how soon after, I changed plans recently and it went through on the same day, first time I've had that happen but I think it was just a slow workday for the tech, was done about 8am, given the up to 2 business day time frame and the coming Easter break it could take a bit longer until you're changed over, hopefully not but worth a mention anyway

sometimes you need to reboot your modem to pickup the new settings, I think that depends what type of connection you were on though, worth a reboot to check though

if it doesn't happen today then it would likely happen Tuesday I suspect
