it has been ages since they have upgraded their 256k speed for free to all 256k customers. All the other speeds have been upgraded free of charge. Someonr needt to make a complaint.

the slower cheeper speed, they want YOU to upgrade so they can charge you more. If the 265k were upgraded to 512k for the lower price, then fewer people would bother to upgrade. I was happy with 512k and would be happy to go back to that for the lower cost.

Cheers Lixdexik.

256k is used as a step up from dial up as the price structure shows, Only a 99p difference click here
so i cant see them increasing the speed it is designed purley to entice people away from dial up who wouldn't nescacerily buy into broadband 512k for whatever reason. Then if they like it invest in higher speeds. (well thats my take on it anyway)
