Except Neil doesn't have to wait for freebie offers from his ISP (just wondering if people suddenly think an extra few KB of download speed will make up for all their other issues with ntl? )

I pay my money (not to ntl I hasten to add! ) & in return I get a rock solid, stable internet connection (with email servers that always work too )

Re: [Merged] BB Speed Upgrades

Just had someone do a speedtest on our site, and got a result of 1457.2 kbps! Out of the hundreds of tests performed, this is the only one to show over 1mb. So i now believe ntl have upgraded some places

They were in luton btw

Re: [Merged] BB Speed Upgrades

I might get 3Mbps when I move to a TW enabled area later this year.

Might be worth waiting to see if it comes down in price though. You don't want to be stuck on a 50/month contract while it could be available for 3x/month a little later.

if your under contract your under contract for them to provide services, if the price decreases irrespective of what the price was when you signed up to then you will still be eligble to pay the new price, if its a decrease or increase.

im sure this applies to TW, although im open to correction.
