Internet Security Threat Report 2014

A new NTL protest site has been set up following the cableco's decision to buy nthellworld.com.

Long-suffering NTL customer, Bryan Stevens, has registered the domain ntlhell.co.uk and already received offers of help to run the site from people providing Web space and programming skills.

However, he told The Register that the decision to go-ahead with ntlhell.co.uk depends on whether nthellworld.com turns into a corporate mouthpiece for the cableco.

"I'll wait and see," said Bryan, although he can't believe that NTL will allow the site to remain as outspoken and critical as before.

Although the site is still on the drawing board, a notice on his site reads: "Who the ntl:hell do ntl: think they are...? Micro$oft?

"Customers being abused by ntl: used to have somewhere to rant and rave and send their complaints but now they don't, thanks to... ntl:!"

Asked whether he would sell the site to NTL Bryan said: "No. Absolutely not."

Last week it emerged that NTL bought nthellworld.com although the cableco denied that it did so to silence its critics.

It's understood that NTL plans to change the site's name to nthelpworld.com within a month. ®
