Cable broadband just got faster [UK]

Cable company Telewest is to offer the UK's first three megabit broadband service.

In a shake-up of existing services it will speed up all its broadband products by 50% for free.

Rival cable net provider NTL is also doubling the speed of its broadband services at no extra cost.

It is part of a fierce ongoing battle between internet service providers to win customers to their high-speed net connections.

Telewest will upgrade services at the end of May.

The three megabit service will offer speeds up to 60 times faster than traditional dial-up access.

People on the 512Kbps Blueyonder service will see speed increase to 750Kb.
