What do you get for 3Gbyte bandwidth per month? click here

I called NTL. They were unable to confirm whether the upgrade is available yet or not.

on ntl homepage it says 12 hours per day surfing 60 odd emails etc, more than enough for average user, the girl i spoke to seemed to know what i was on about, and my machine is whizzing now, joel.

On click here it says *600* emails per day. Even enough for me. Maybe I'll try calling again later, and see if I get a less clueless operator.

Anybody else able to confirm that the upgrade is available. I'm in London.

That's 600 per week not per day

This is a bad rip off: click here

1Mb 1000Kbs / 100Kbps From 1000Kbps / 256Kbps

2Mb 2000Kbs 200Kbps

3Mb 3000Kbs 300Kbps

That means that those who used to have a 1MB service have gone from a 256Kbps to a 100Kbps upload, which means for me XBOX live and sending large files has now become a nightmare....

Changing to BT ASAP.

All done. Not sure if the upload will be any slower than I had before. It was always a lot slower than the 300 kbs download speed.

Seems as fast as it ever was to publish pages from my website, if not faster. Browsing is obviously much faster.
