    I've got 10 meg. To be honest its not that much quicker than 2meg because you end up being limited by how fast the servers are on the rest of the web.

    You need to have 10 Firefox tabs open and click to refresh all. Give those servers a workout! :)

    I hope NTL remove the caps. I have a 3 meg connection and d/l at 360kbs (380kbs is full wack) I can do 32 gig in a day approx. My cap is only 30gig, which means that I can only use my line at full potential for 1 day and then I have to not use it. Its a bit like buying a car and telling someone that they can only drive 50 miles in a month.

    Roll on 10 meg and no caps. :D

    You bugger.... [​IMG] :D

    I hope with the NTL/Telewest merger comes the removal of these caps. If not your lovely 10 meg connection could be capped at 75gig :eek: which can easily be done in under a day. :thumbsdow

    :D
