    It depends if you want wires-only, or whether you want a fully managed service, Moresauce.

    I'm after just a wired home user service - looking at NTL for a while but have been to busy to actually do somethign about it! They will install and provide a modem for free and their 150k service is just 17.99 a month as I already pay 15.99 for BT unlimited dial up I think it is well worth it.

    It may not be the full monty broadband but it is still 3 times faster than a dial up and for just 2 more [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Mine's a bundle from Telewest Broadband:
    Blueyonder broadband - 512k - normally 25.99/month
    Talk Unlimited Phone Package - normally 26.00/month
    Digital TV - Supreme Package - normally 25.50/month

    All in 66.50/month - Free Installation, including all the kit, except a network card at 25.00.

    Compared to what I was paying for dial-up internet, and a standard phone package with BT, and the equivalent SKY digital package - approx 13/month more.

    So 13.00/month extra for broadband and a 24/7 unlimited local and national call package (which now keeps me from constantly falling out with my teenage son over his phone calls).

    I thought is was a good deal...

    In my opinion, the NTL 150k "broadband" service is a rip-off.

    Not only is it not really that "broad", but it's also capped at a certain data amount per month (I think...) and it's so similarly priced to some 512k offerings it just doesn't make sense...

    Just think - you could almost get the same data-throughput with a bonded-ISDN dial-up (128k), and thats not classed as broadband...

    Interesting comment, but it is still 3 times quicker than dial-up and only two quid more! I will ask when I order if they are any limits as to data etc.
