    I don't know if this has been posted before as I can't search for NTL (only 3 Characters)

    Maybe I'm missing something, but I really don't see why that's much of a problem. Even if you got a full 50k/bytes per second downloads speed, you could still be on for a quarter of the day at full speed.

    You're paying for the speed, rather than the amount, and they have to put a limit somewhere. I know that BT broadband have the same restriction (leaflet arrived in the post a few days ago).

    As for considering going back to 56k, you're very stupid if you think that, since even 24 hours a day internet access (which is against the conditions of most UK ISPs), you can't download anything like a Gigabyte per day - and a flat rate package will cost you around 1/2 the price of broadband just for that.

    Fair enough, these broadband packages won't let you download at full speed 24 hours a day - but you're still getting an infinately better service than people (like me), who live in the 35% of the UK that STILL can't access the internet above 56kbs, whatever price we pay!

    yeah, lifes a bitch...by far the best ISP is the one im with

    22.99 per month, unlimited .5 M bit. I have a router and so am technically connected 24/7, no prob. regularly dload about 1.5 gig per day.

    ditch ntl, tell them you want your connection and activation costs back, cos they're going against what you agreed to when you signed up. then ditch them, tell them your going back to bt phone, and then they'll sh1t themselves.

    Firstly I&#39;m not STUPID. You must be if you couldn&#39;t work out that the link isn&#39;t written by me it&#39;s just a link to more info
    secondly why should I pay 35 quid for 1GB per day

    And finally I signed up to NTL&#39;s unlimited service and they take it away without even telling me

    If you can&#39;t see that sucks then I suggest you go back to your cave on Mars, Close your eyes and put you&#39;re fingers back in your ears.

    yeah, you&#39;ve got em by the balls, cos if you want to change to a normal ADSL ISP, then you need a BT phone line...bye bye NTL, then theyre stuffed

    Mine also, I am not sure if there&#39;s a cap or they are trying to drive away large users by fucking with their connection
    or it may be they have problems, but I doubt that
