NTL is to launch a 1-megabit broadband service for residential users from next Monday.

The new service will cost £49.99 a month and should appeal to speed-hungry Net users who are into gaming, music downloads, yada, yada, yada.

The cableco has trialled the new service for the last two months and denies that today's announcement was rescheduled to trump BT's recent announcement to slash the wholesale cost of DSL.

Last week Telewest announced its intention to go head to head with BT and compete on cost and speed.

It is due to offer a 1-megabit broadband service sometime later this year. ®
