Anyone living in the wirral area found it is taking a long time to open the home page,up to three minutes on dial up when as rule it takes a few seconds this has happened in the last two days NTL support don't know of any fault. No problem with any other ISP.
I have no problem with e mail downloading at all. I use 150 Kbps broadband. However I have long since given up on the home Page you can make a cup of tea whilst it opens up. I have made Google my home page, and it must take all of one to two seconds to open up. Try it, after all what advantage is there in having NTL as the home page?
