According to the Register, here, my ISP is going to start offering 10 meg broadband.

Now I'm shocked because usually they are a bit behind and a bit more expensive. So, why do I use them? Well shockingly I live in an ADSL black-spot, yes there are still a few left, so NTL is all I can get, or it's dial-up or NTL and being a true Geek I just can't bring myself to use dial-up again.

I'm not sure if I like the model, were you pay for the amount of data you download is really what I want. I like the unlimited download model and I think I would pay extra to keep it, but most ISP seem to really like the pay-as-you-go model because they can make more cash. Hmmm, I think I had better move.

you may have a 10meg link but you also have to take in to consideration on where your downloding from as must people cap off to stop ther bandwidth being jammed.

... and the point of thinking you have a 10 meg link and not actually having one is ?

Just when you think NTL are sorting themselves out they go and fluff it.
