hi guys thought i'd share with u. i rang up nthell as i'm paying for their 1 meg service and asked them for a upgrade to their 10 meg service . after a bit of a quabble with the guy he agreed to give me 10 meg free for 3 months as i threatend to change providers cos i have seen better elsewhere. anyway guys if u got it in ur area give it a go. might be worth a try. and also if anyone knows of any site that gives exact readings of broadband speed check pls let me know as the best my speed is showing is 5megs at the moment. cheers guys waitin for ur thoughts.
