well before all speeds were increased when it jumped from 512k to 1mb and so on so who knows we may all get free upgrades.

Yes this is only a 10-20mb upgrade at the moment.

But have you also seen the fact that if your current modem doesn't support 20mb speeds then you have to get an upgrade at a cost of £25

I recently downgraded from 10mb to 4mb and its a far more stable connection.Ok,it takes longer to get stuff but its not erratic speeds like the 10mb service.

The other speeds ARE being upgraded eventually just not at the moment.

On 1st May 2007 the price for Broadband Size: XL will go up from £35 to £37 per month
The good news is that from May onwards we'll also be rolling out a programme to increase the speed of the Size: XL service from 10Mb to up to 20Mb

That the letter i got this morning.

Just Phoned em up bluffing saying i want to cut of broadband cause its too expensive and the price is goin up. Straight away he gave me half price 10 meg for 6 months and he said when that runs out just ring back and they'll do it again, but i dont know weather that'll work. Still good though, everyone should try it.
