[NTL: UK] Speed Hikes


Question

98XT

NTL have previously said that the cable modem network speeds will be increased on August 1st. Can anyone in the UK confirm/deny/elaborate on this? Sure would be nice to wake up tomorrow to 1.5Mb. :yes:

-- Thanks!

i very much doubt this would happen nationaly on a sunday because if something goes wrong the cs wont be able to cope with the demand, i think they are doing area by area and a few manchester towns are already done.

That is true :)

SACM (Stand Alone Cable Modem)

150/600/1 Meg Start 1st August

STB (Set Top Box)

150/600 Start 1st August

1 Meg Start 1st September

The Bromley platform is ready to handle the upgrades, however there are some Langley areas that require some work, this being the case, the dates may slip slightly, whilst the network is brought up to speed.

A summary of the current and what the new upgraded speeds will be, are as follows:-

* ntl 150Kbps increases to 300Kbps

* ntl 600Kbps increases to 750Kbps

* ntl 1Mbps increases to 1.5Mbps

On the back of the modem there maybe a little hole that is marked reset and you need a paper clip to reset it (this is based on my Motorola SB4100 modem) or you can unplug the modem for 5-10 seconds and power it back up, that should do the trick. :)
