The price increase is 20% but the speed increase is only 17%, that's good of them isn't it?

Another thing is that, of course the price is DEFINATELY going up to £17.99 but the speed is going UP to 150k (on a good day maybe ~~)

Cancelling my account, can't afford the increase.

Can you cancel within 12 months? Don't know with NTL but you can't with most of them can you.

Well joy of joys. They entice people like me to sign up to a twelve month contract by offering cheap installation and then hit us with a price hike. It may be good business but it will be a PR disaster.

PCAdvisor - hit them with your best journalism. Make them squirm over this, please.

if you are going to cancel the service due to 2 quid price increase, what ISP are you going to use, wont you have to pay a further sign on/activation fee with the new one, seems like false economy to me.

If NTL breaks its side of a contract then u can cancel without fear. They did similar thing with Cable TV a couple of yrs ago.

Free internet access seems all but a distant memory. There seems to have been an agreement between all isp, To use free access to build up there user base then hit us were it hurts. It was all a ploy to get us onto broadband, and by damn it worked! : P
