Yay, they finally switched me. As of today NTL are supplying my bradband at 10mbps down 1mbps up. Chuffed... Azuerez peaked at 8mbps down earlier and it was fun watching Steam update at 9.75mpbs. Will post a spead test later.

Was also informed that all current 3mbps customers will be switched over the next coupl eof weeks. They're still load testing the network and some exchanges still have limiters in @ 5mbps.

There's 3 caps based on how mych you pay, something along the lines of 40,50 & 75GB/month but they are releasing an uncapped version to next year at a romoured 49.99/month.

Speeds have been a little erratic this morning. Latnight I had the full 10mb, then at about 1am it dropped to 500k/sec thne when I left this morning, it was back up at 5mb. Aparently the official switch from 3 to 10 users is Dec 1st, everything before that is hit or miss as they're still faffin about with load balancing. There's also a list of non-compatible modems about somewhere that worth looking at. ANyone with an NTL 100,120,200 should be fine though.

Should be able to get TV shows from BitTorrent at about, ooh I dunno, 30 seconds an episode? ;-)

Wha wha wha?

When did they do this? Is it the new standard speed? I'm on 2Mb, does that mean we'll get upgraded automatically?
