the register are reporting that NTL are upgrading their 3 cable packages early next year. The 300k/s connection, which is the minimum at the moment will get an upgrade to 1Mb, their 750k/s gets upgraded to 2mb and their 1.5mb/s connection, which i have now, gets an upgrade to 3mb. no word on weather Ireland will get the upgrade, and no word on upload speed either. now thats sweet! also, no price increese! lets hope they get the upgrade to Ireland!
