Telewest are to start the roll out of faster speeds from September! What's more, unlike the announced NTL speed upgrades, TW will be an uncapped service. Entry level speed will be 2mb, 4mb will be £25 and 10mb will be £35.

Oooooh, the timing.... !!!!

I was just about to switch to Bulldog for the extra speed

So my £25 will go from 1mb to 4mb. Wheeeeeee!!

There is a downside of course, I will be able to do everything 4 times faster, which means I will only be on-line for a quarter of the time, which in effect means there has been a four fold increase in my subscription.

OOooooh, it's like Xmas again. :o)

My God, I sound like one of my grandchildren.!

Don't count on that Happy Soul - the quoted speeds are maximums, and you are unlikely ever to achieve the maximum.

Nevertheless, this is welcome news for Telewest customers, and is I hope an indication of the way things will go with other providers.

All of this is being geared towards offering us film download services, and the race to capture that market will pick up in the coming months. It can only be good news for broadband users.
