Shame that they are not increasing the upload speed from 128 kbps though :o(

" Shame that they are not increasing the upload speed from 128 kbps though"

Is thefe a technical reason for this or do Blueyonder have the opinion that most people use broadband for downloading?

  bremner 20:45 17 Nov 2004

I do not think its technical as the 1.5MB has 256KB and the fastest 3MB has 348MB - I think its just down to what you are preapred to pay.

Well spotted dagwoood, this means I will soon be on 2MB. Smile on face, can't wait.

why arnt they speeding up my 256 quote- blueyonder broadband 256Kb
The entry-level 256Kb service will remain unchanged, costing £17.99 a month. (Currently offered at £14.99. Click here for more details). when the 14.99 finishes i will be paying more for the same speed

It would be interesting to hear their answer to that one bobbybowls.

The others are going up by 33%. If your 256k went up by the same it would become 341k. I guess there is no such thing and that's why you are staying the same.

I've just realised I'm being put up from 750k to 1MB not the 2MB I thought.

As they no longer have 512k, it wouldn't have hurt them to up the 256 to 512. Oh well.

My guess is that they want to phaze the 256k out.

It looks obvious they want the 256k users to pay a little extra and get the new 1MB line instead.

I mean why pay $17.99 for 256k when for 7 pound extra a month you can get a 4x faster line.

erm £'s

Then a lot of people, my self included would down grade to the slower speed & lower cost. I pay £25 a month for what will become 1mb. I thought the 525k or what ever it was, was very good when I started with BB, I for one don't need blistering speed, I would rather have lower prices. £25 is still a lot to pay every month for the convenience of not blocking the phone line, for that is the only big advantage of BB for me...I like the BB and would not go back to dial up. Even at 256k I am swithering about the £84 a year saving to be made..

Cheers Lixdexik.
