News / gossip just heard

NTL cable speed increase from 14th March
and no admin charge !!!!

Ps hope its the correct place to post a rumour !!
but as we all know getting a straight answer from NTL is never easy !!!

It would appear as though NTL are trying to catch up with other ISP's who are offering the same type of 'free' upgrades.At the rate all of them are going, we may end up with all free internet use by next christmas!.

Free internet use , thats wishful thinking .
But wonder wot our speeds will be in 5/10 years?

I started at 28.Kb

Had a maximum speed of 14.4Kb but my first ISP was only able to offer 9.6Kb.

How times change.

Staff at the NTL desk in the local shopping centre (promoting their TV packages) told me that cable internet speeds being increased on 1st. March. Looks like April then!

Well if 'staff at Ntl desk' say Ist March , that will be the one date that will be wrong !!!

But must say when I first posted , it was a strong 'rumour ' but have now heared from many sources.
