Smile Telewest Broadband to increase speeds

My first post, so here it goes....

According to many sources and discussion on DS, Telewest will increase speed levels on 3 of their blueyonder broadband internet packages by 50%.

512K service will increase to 750K,
1MB service will increase to 1.5MB,
and 2 MB service will increase to 3MB at no extra cost (yet).

This will happen on Monday and will be confirmed by Telewest on Monday.

Re: Telewest Broadband to increase speeds

I think its about time Aizad Hussain was sacked. His decisions upto now have really alienated customers & Staff to NTL. He really doesn't seem to have a clue. Where did they find this muppet

Re: Telewest Broadband to increase speeds

hmm... so tw are going to increase their speeds by 50% and not charge any extra? forgive me for being cynical, but i can't see them increasing the speeds and then not increases the prices afterwards.

I guess they are not going to leave the existing packages as well, so lets say they increase the speeds, and then a couple of months down the line, increase the prices. What will happen to the people who were happy with their 512k service and don't want to/ can't afford to pay the extra??

I suppose that way of thinking is expected being an NTL customer after all lol

Nah I see it as a winner to fight off ADSL which is getting more and more popular

Re: Telewest Broadband to increase speeds

I haven't heard anything so can't comment........ BUT if this is true then the merger will look more like a telewest takeover they have the better deals so pull the punches.. You can't get the customers to take lower speeds once its launched..... Are NTL awake do they see they are strangling the company, stilting its potentual..... All I can see is BT and Telewest fighting it out for the best broadband supplier and NTL creeping under a rock..

Come on Telewest take over NTL [img]Download Failed (1)[/img]

Shame on you. You want Telewest customers to have their service brought down to NTLs level?

No if you read it I said you can't bring them down! Which means those would have to stay and to merge the packages need to be the same. NTL are going to be further away from Telewest in packages now making merging impossible.

NTL packages.. All capped to 1gig.
170K, 600K, 1mb..

Telewest only the 256K capped to 750mb a day.
256K, 512K , 1mb, 2mb.. now.. They also have a reduction on price if you have another product like phone or tv of them...

All round a better deal. I regret Telewest not winning when Nynex bought out C&W in the begining..
