UK News: NTL Announces New Range of Broadband Services

ntl, the UK's leading provider of broadband internet services, today unveiled plans to unleash the potential of its fibre optic cable network by launching three super-speed broadband internet services. Available in early 2005, the new services will offer 1Mb, 2Mb and 3Mb broadband connections.

Having been the first company to offer UK consumers a choice of speeds at great value prices, ntl believes that the time is right to offer higher speeds while maintaining mass market prices.

By focusing on more speed ntl is enhancing the part of the broadband service that will make the most difference to customers such as fast downloading of music, emailing digital photos in an instant or delivering high quality video performance.

The three new services will be highly competitive:

  • £17.99 per month: ntl 1Mb Broadband (monthly usage allowance 5GB) will offer super speed broadband for 60p a day. For the same price BT Broadband offers a basic 512K service with 1GB usage allowance.

  • £24.99 per month: ntl 2Mb Broadband (monthly usage allowance 30GB) will operate at a stunning speed, but at a price that's in line with most 512K ADSL services. For the same price BT Broadband offers a 512K service with 15GB usage allowance

  • £37.99 per month: ntl 3Mb Broadband (monthly usage allowance 40GB) will operate at up to 60 times faster than dial up services. BT and Wanadoo do not provide 2Mb or 3Mb services.

    Well, I'll be monitoring my average monthly usage on my £24.99/750k NTL connection in the coming months and if I don't really get close to 30GB then I'll see about switching.


    Bear in mind that they already contact customers who consistently download over 1gb a day on average over a 1 month period about how they are "degrading the service for regular customers".

    If that is the case then I can see quite a few people "downgrading", going for the cheaper but still faster than what they have at the moment service.


    Great move by NTL, I just hope people don't start complaining about usage allowances now...
