    What just happened to my NTL?

    I just started off some newsgroup downloads.... (giganews is my provider)

    Took me roughly 35 minutes to get 7.5GB worth.... I've queued up another 40GB and my client is estimating 3 hours ish. Its bouncing around 30-40mbit right now.

    Whatever is going on, its damn hot, i can only hope it stays!

    I remember reading that an ISP (I think BT) had to unlock the bandwidth in an area for around 3 days once whilst they conducted upgrades to the surrounding exchanges. People were getting speeds not too dissimilar to your own, so maybe the same has happened with NTL.

    I just checked my bandwidth graph, it started slowing down around 11am, and is now bouncing around 15-20mbit.

    NTL removed all caps. They don't have the organisationl abilities to enforce it, so they just got rid all together.

    NTL are currently trailing both 20mb and 50mb for 10mb users. The 20mb trial is widespread but 50mb if for a very small amount of users. Consider your self extremely lucky!

    You misunderstand what Buff said

    The bandwidth for your connection has to come from somewhere; ADSL is just the means to an end. It’s simply how the bandwidth is delivered to you. Where this bandwidth comes from however is the important bit. I don’t know if they do, but there is no reason why NTL couldn’t be behind AOL’s network bandwidth

    What modem are you using - there aren't many that will go over about 34Mbps?
