Can we expect a letter before the upgrade from NTL?

Re: [Merged] BB Speed Upgrade Dates

Well, it's most likely. They should really tell us by letter (like they have for us) before they actually do it.

Re: Received letter confirming broad band upgrade

Not had any letter about that yet but did get a letter saying that call itemisation on the telephone bill will only be for calls over 50p unless I want to pay £1 a month for full itemisation. BT is looking even more tempting.

I did read a post from a guy working at NTL somewhere a while ago about a big hush hush thing to increase the upload speed sometime but I cannot find the thread so any news??

Re: [Merged] BB Speed Upgrades

Havn't got the speed increase yet, it said some time within august, but I bet that's going to be soon since we got a letter, and no one else I know who is on NTL have a letter saying that yet

Re: [Merged] BB Speed Upgrades

Did any of the people who DID get a speed increase today, get a letter beforehand? Or in true NTL fashion, is it all a bit random and unreliable?

I don't get it. The company increase speeds at no extra cost and **still** it's not good enough........

Re: [Merged] BB Speed Upgrades

I trust all those who said the planned upgrades would never happen because ntl were just trying to con customers, will now come back to this thread and confess in public they were wrong.......

It'll be a cold day in hell.....

Re: [Merged] BB Speed Upgrades

Well what would you rather have? 1GB bandwidth per day or 1gb per month? (which BT offer, Wanadoo offer 2gb bandwidth, which is NO WHERE NEAR as good as NTL's 1gb per day)

I'm sticking with NTL until I can afford to move to BullDog.

No i never got one. But my m8 who lives half a mile away did.
So some believed it , some not.

I did when i saw the increase early this morning tho, and for a few quid i,m happy with it.
Now if we can just sort out the e-mail server.....................


[yes there's always one ]
