Telewest overhauls broadband speeds (again!)

Telewest overhauls broadband speeds
Thursday, November 11 2004, 12:51 GMT -- by Neil Wilkes


Telewest has announced speed increases across its range of broadband services -all at "no extra cost" to the consumer.

Rollout of the permanent bandwidth upgrades will begin in December, with completion expected in January 2005.

Leading the new lineup is a 4Mb service, a replacement for the flagship 3Mb connection. Upload speed will be increased from 256K to 384K.

The 1.5Mb service will change to 2Mb, while the 750K connection will increase in speed to 1Mb. The entry-level 256K service remains unchanged.

"This will be the second time this year we have increased the speed of our blueyonder broadband services, doubling the original bandwidth with no increased costs and no introduction of caps," explained Eric Tveter, president and chief operating officer at Telewest Broadband.

"This isn't a short-term offer and there are no catches - we're simply giving broadband users what they want, thanks to our advanced cable network. Christmas is a time for giving, so anyone fed up with Scrooge-like behaviour from their ISP knows where to come for faster, unlimited internet access."

/me sits idely while he waits for Docsis 2 to be rolled out to get in on the 20 Mbit down, 10 Mbit up

For now ill have to suffice with 10 Mbit down, 1 Mbit up. Which is not bad at all. But i can't wait for FTTH either!


I may actually be insane.
Surprise surprise, cable co's increasing speeds whilst BT sit on their arse and do nothing. Gotta love monopoly's. grr.
Yeah, ADSL providers cant push up speeds as fast as cable cos can (due to limitations with the network) and cable cos cant push down prices as fast as ADSL providers can (due to debt and fewer customers)

Its a nice state of affairs really, a option for all.
