Re: [Merged] BB Speed Upgrades

Well as usuall we'll just have to'wait and see' what 4th November 2004 brings, who knows maybe even the promise of higher speeds >4meg either 'on demand or a 'build your own' package.

Something along these lines would certainly bring NTL to the forefront and knock the current adsl offerings for a six, or 'just maybe' Telewest will announce it the day before leaving poor old NTL looking like a 'wannabee' ISP.

Most of us that use this forum know that NTL have the technology, and indeed staff capable of implementing it and most importantly maintaining the network IF they were left to do the jobs that that were hired to do so instead of running around doing 'someone elses job' whos job description sounds vaguely like their own e.g contains the word 'engineer or technician'

Reading RG6 4xb upgrade to 750k ?

Last working day of Oct, they are cutting it a bit fine - still no sign of any upgrade here as promised on the post code checker

I don't know why I'm not suprised by that

Anyone else nearby been upgraded OK ?

I'v tried leaving SACM off for hours at a time to no avail

Re: [Merged] BB Speed Upgrades

Does anyone in the PA15 area had there SACM upgrade to 750Kb yet... I have been in touch with NTL and been told that this area is being done in November and they told me to check the post code checker to keep up to date but it says congratulations u were upgraded in August ??

Re: [Merged] BB Speed Upgrades

Have the STBs been upgraded early? Last night, with DUMeter which has always been really accurate, my downloads were staying around 130k/s-140k/s, and hitting 160k/s. Certainly never did that before.

No. Trust me on this. Maintenance windows are small hours of the morning Tuesday to Thursday, which should give you a clue
