    Money for nothing as the song goes.
    NTL are not buying extra backbone/network capacity since they can't afford it hence the "Cap" which is to force people to use less of their allocated bandwidth so it can be resold to others.
    It wasn't so long ago I thought NTL had broadband in the palm of their hands but since they came out of Chapter 11 it's been totally chaos with that joke of a cap and then an extra £3 a month for their entry level CM service.
    They must be the only company that buys capacity in bulk with the cost benefits that brings and then raises prices to their customers and have the nerve to brag about it still being the cheapest entry level product!
    I am not an ADSL or BT fan but I hope their mid tear product is more than a match for NTL because I think NTL are throwing away a huge opportunity to stuff BT on lower speed connections.

    You can get a 512k adsl connection for £19.99 - I know which i'd choose.

    I didnt see the price increase. It is an absolute disgrace!
    £18 per month for 150k/64k !! £2 extra and you can get 512k/265k on adsl.

    What are they hoping to achieve! If they upgraded the speed to 256k, then it would be worth it. Im sure ALOT of there 128k customers will disconnect and go with adsl, including me!

    Adsl is a very good value now, the asdl modems start from only £30 and the internet has a better speed : price ratio.


    B.T.W, can anyone recommend a good (£19.99) ISP for asdl?
