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!
