It depends on how "instant" you want. I am on NTL Broadband at 600 and I don't have a problem. My download speeds are around 70kbs except for yesterday when it dropped to around 35kbs but still better than 3.5 on dialup.

click here £27.50 1mb, £37.50 2mb. Cheap nice and fast, short 3 month contract. Requires BT. I use the 2mb, my Dad uses the 1 mb.

Failing that try click here

I use BTYahoo Broadband. Costs £29.99/month. I really can't complain even though, like most people, we like to have a go at BT from time to time! It's always available, fast and is being improved. Witness the recent update to their webmail. NO, I don't work for BT or own any of their shares!!

You quite clearly have a problem with your set up.

I have Blueyonder 1MB and average well in excess of 100Kbs (depending on the download site)

You need to contact ntl and i am sure they will assist in sorting out your problem.

I'm on NTL 600 and I also get about 70kbs on average. Why not give NTL a call? There might be a problem with the cable or something, which can be sorted out by an engineer.
