ntl upgrade is late august according to thee customer services but if you have 600k and you phone them and ask if you can have the free upgrade they will give you 1mg for a month for the price of the 600k

leo the lion. Then what happens? Do you go back to 600 or do they deem you have agreed to the 1mb service and start charging.

they are advertising on their sky digital channel that all packages are cut in price by half for a few months if you sign up now.

leo the lion as above did you agree to this and what are the terms of the temporary upgrade please? very interested as i have the 600k £24.99 service.

In all fairness NTL are probably spending time ensuring the system can cope as the majority of users are on 150K broad band the bandwidth useage will double at peak times; this may need upgrades to certain parts of th esystem and retesting which is the possibly the reason the system is currently not performing very well, I am having the same problem lately with slow web page loading, etc but I am being patient, I am sure NTL will come right in the end as they did with teh mail system when that was overloaded.
