Just seen an advert on TV about AOL being unlimited for £19.99 a month is that better value than NTL

The original speed increase thread had various posts from more than one NTL associate, all saying that only the download speeds are being increased - no upload increase.

Do you think 750/128 is good enough to compete with 512/256?

I wonder when BT will advertise against this or Telewest will up theirs, either/both kicking ntl into another round of upgrades.

Can you use a router for home-working with AOL yet? Or is is restricted to single PC USB connection?

hmmm - not to have a go, but I will be very surprised if everyone gets the increase on August 1st , more like some will, beginning the 1st of August & rolled out from there.

Like I said, thats not a dig, I just think there may be more involved than something akin to a guy stood next to a big red button, about to say "I now declare this speed increase operational" ;)

I hope I'm wrong, but I think it might be a mistake to anticipate too much and end up ranting that ntl don't keep their (still at this point alleged, don't forget) word. :shrug:

it depends really, the rollout may occour in most areas, with some left until later... it depends on the maintainence windows, i guess we will have to keep an eye out on the service status :)
