huggyg71, it's still not signed off as resolved which probably means it is still ongoing.

ntl have a £14.99 128k service thats quite good.

no matter who you go with there will always be those that have problems and those that dont.

i have only ever been without my email for at the most 2-3 hours and that has happened about three times in 10 months.

i have only rang customer support once and got through in under four rings and problem solved in less than a min.

others will not have been so lucky.

i think ntl gives great service.others might have a different story to tell.

same everywhere.

It would appear to have a problem today as well. I cant send email.

  anniesboy68 17:44 07 Jun 2003

NTLs home page [check server status] in respect of e mails has still not been resolved and now its Saturday evening nigh on. Have they forgotton it??????????

email working like lightening both sending and receiving, but it seems to be very unreliable lately
