If you you go for Broadband it would be an idea to get an network card rather than USB. You did not say what OS you are using, If it is Win 95 it is not supported for usb and NTL.

You can get them for approx £10. In general the network cards run better than USB.

On the site NTL recommends USB as shown above but if you talk to the NTL support they recommend Network cards, as it causes less problems with drivers.

Do a search on this forum to see what other people say.

If you go ahead and get broadband I would definately advise you to connect through a network card rather than USB I had an NTL broadband connection using USB but changed to a NIC connection as my USB scanner would not work with my USB modem.
