    3Mb - 40GB

    I'm not sure if ntl have said this officially yet though, so it may not be correct.
    Last time I looked they weren't going to cap the 3Mb one

    Anyway seen this:

    Seems NTL are set to increase the download speeds on their three tiers of broadband service again - for the second time in a year - and without increasing their prices. The new details are as follows:

    * 300k service increases to 1Mb, with 5GB/Month download cap.
    * 750k service increases to 2Mb, with 30GB/Month download cap.
    * 1.5Mb service insreases to 3Mb, with 40GB/Month download cap.

    So it appears that NTL are going to usher in their download cap after all, but they're deflecting attention away from it by tying it with the increase in download speeds. Considering there was a lot of hoohah about a 1GB/Day cap at 1Mb, this is actually going to be pretty restrictive for the new 1Mb users, and 3Mb users (including myself) will get a download cap that it only marginally less strict than the previously announced version.

    No news on the upload speeds either, which leads us to believe they're going to remain the same.

    Caps **** me off.
    What's the point of an always on connection if half-way through the month you reach your limit and can't use it anymore?!

    I guess you'll be able to pay for the cap to be removed until the end of the month - just another way for "rip off britian" to keep it's good name I guess .... *sigh*

    Yep and ****** that, I'm sticking with my uncapped ntl 750k, rather than being capped and paying for the privilege :down:

    Shame about the other speeds.

    Why can't they be like Blue Yonder :cry:
