I am impressed with the speed I can now get all those long updates.
Thanks Joe

No you don't need NetGuard, you're covered with what you have now as long as they're both up to date.

What speed are you on Joe?

Many users have problems with NTL, but I've been on their 1Mb service (£9.99/month & 3Gb allowance) for the last 4-5 months & it has been very good service all through except for 2 small problems. One seemed to sort itself out in a few hours (they were going to send an engineer), & for the other I received good help from the ntl:hell forum click here. G

I have changed my speed several times I've been on the 1meg, went to 3 meg and changed back to 2 meg. been with them more than a year now.

Never had problems with their internet service.
