I'm with Blueyonder/Telewest.

Started a year ago on 256Kbps. Then they upgraded it to 512Kbps for free. Now they're upgrading it to 2Mbps for free (and the upstream to 256Kbps from 128Kbps). Also their status page shows that the upgrades in my area (Croydon) should be taking place... well, yesterday actually. I don't think it's happened yet but will check again when I get home.

And on the subject of...

Does that not strike you as an offer you should perhaps take up? The net was never really meant to be accessed over phone lines. Broadband just makes more sense to your computer, let alone your wallet.

fingerz, you might have to turn off your modem for a few minutes to get the upgrades. NTL require you to do this I think.

I see blueyonder are also offering free antivirus software, firewall, popup blocker, parental control and antispyware to their customers which automatically updates too.

I believe if you request a manual line test you will almost certainly get 1Mbit now dod..

I was in the exact same position (BT Line Checker) telling me only 512 was available until I forced my ISP Nildram to do a manual check,

Went through with no problem..

You should try the same mate..

I nearly placed my order for an up to 25mg line the other day. According to tests my line speed would have been around 20mb

I could write a book on trying for ADSL in my area...

Call me stupid but about 4 years ago I was paying in the region of £90 a month for 2Mbit Satellite ADSL internet...

1: You need an ISP for a dial-up account per month
2: I also had ISDN at about £30 a month (quick connection but crap speeds)
3: I was paying a bloody fortune for a crappy satellite connection which was useless but was sucked into a 12 month contract.. :eyesup:

Yes I was desperate for broadband.......Very desperate... :icon_redf

My ISP charge £24.99/month for 512k The only two reasons I stay with them are:

1. No bandwidth restrictions.
2. 1Gb of webspace.

Can't get Blueyonder here.

In all honesty though, there are still quite a few people out there who don't have any bandwidth restrictions, although they are becoming thinner on the ground.
I'm with Pipex and they only do 'traffic shaping' at peak hours (6pm - midnight), insofar that, if you are classed as a heavy downloader (read gigs per day, every day for months), then you are restricted during peak hours.

Now this is the sort of restriction I don't mind (as long as prices reflect it of course), due to the actual boundaries they have set. Here it's only the very very heavy downloaders who have been 'shaped', yet with someone like BT, you connect and you're restricted for using too much bandwidth.

I keep getting told that my line will only go to 512k, even though i'm on a newish build area and not all that far from the exchange.

Eclipse take around 23 quid a month off me for that speed too!

I'm not restricted and the servce level of eclipse is great, but I'd love to have just a little more speed......1mb would be fine never mind 10mb

2meg connection here from plus net @14.99 a month. It's shaped to allow priority to browsing, but not capped. I've given up downloading music and stuff since they've started prosecuting in the uk. Now I just have to contend with my flat-mate the bandwidth vampire, who's just discovered shareaza!
