    I was upgraded to the 2MBps, many moons ago, when it was Telewest - I didn't do anything, they just sent me an email telling me they were going to do it - and they did

    Also, 50MBps by the end of 2008

    That'll mean new modems again. Current ones only do 38Mbps.

    I had the 10mb service when they did the free upgrade to 20mb, would be nice if they now upgraded my 20mb to 50mb

    The upgrade to 50Mb will cost 47 quid IIRC.

    There is a beta section on the web for their site. There's no direct link to it though.

    LOL. "Upgrades"

    We're on a "20meg" line. The most I get out of it (and we're talking at 0300hrs) is 4meg.

    I'm going to be calling them up soon because my housemate who actually is the account holder is refusing to do it but says I can if it bothers me that much. Tbh...the amount we pay for this joke of a line, it bloody well /does/ bother me!

    That was the free upgrade which came about 6 weeks after they'd hiked the price by 3 quid/month! I find the quality of their product great, but they are pricey. We hammer our connection more than most families would and I still think 20Mbit is excessive for our needs. I doubt I'd notice any speed increases over about 8Mbit.

    As for the 50Mbit increase which was originally due Q2 of this year, it wouldn't surprise me if they do the same - jack the prices, bump you up, then remove the 20mbit deal forcing you to choose between upgrade and downgrade.
