    Be aware it's "up to 24Mbps" I'd wait 'til it's rolled out if I were you and see how people find it. I bet the average user won't get above 4Mbps with the initial demand they'll receive.

    Well, I've been on 8mb for the last year and am about to upgrade, FOC, to 20mb. The price? £10 per month. Neuf Telecom, France.

    All I can say is "my arse". Wait and see how it works in the real world, nowhere near as advertised I'd bet. Sounds like another Bulldog

    in fairness my bulldog connection has been superb from day one and I nearly always max it out when downloading. Not everyone's experience but for me its been great.

    EDIT - what a great way to celebrate my 1000th post! :rolleyes:

    It has to work as advertised. You may not get the maximum bandwidth but maybe thats because of contention ;)

    As the user above says, it just depends on if your luck.
