by the way how did you find out ?

It was on various online news sites such as the BBCi (click here) and The Register (click here). It is also likely to have been posted on Telewests site, and those customers affected will no doubt get some promo with their next bill.

I got a direct e-mail from Blueyonder to tell me about my FREE upgrade.
About time we got something for free.
BBI is far too expensive in this country. It doesn't really encourage people to upgrade from dialup, only those who do heavy downloads.

Anyone know what the NTL 600k will be updated to? Can't find that info in the news articles - i suspose it will be increase to the 1mb 'ish level. Cool or what?? Thought 600k was quick!!!

NTL's entry-level 150K service is upgrading to 300k although the price will remain £17.99 a month. The 600K service is to increase to 750K (£24.99) while its 1MB service ramps up to 1.5MB (£37.99).

NTL's gear-shift will take place in the summer, a little later than Telewest, which upgrades in May.

A spokesman for NTL said the announcement to double the speed of broadband services - on the same day that Telewest announced the same plan - was "pure coincidence".

It will be interesting to see if Tiscali goes the same way, and follows the other providers.
