Angry NTL customers are considering legal action over the cableco's decision to cap its broadband service.

The Register understands that lawyers are currently examining the possibilities of setting up a "group action" against the cableco.

The fact that a legal team is mulling court action shows the depth of feeling among customers and is a sure sign that the row over the 1 Gig/day capping is unlikely to fade away quietly.

A week after NTL sneaked out news that it is to cap its broadband service, it still remains unclear whether there has been any sizeable protest against the cableco.

According to those behind the Don't-pay-NTL protest site some customers have been distributing leaflets in supermarkets and other areas warning people about NTL's broadband cap. It's also understood that the BBC's consumer affair programme, Watchdog, is on NTL's scent.

And The Register is aware that some people have cancelled their subscriptions today, although at this stage it's still unknown whether such planned protests have had any major impact on the cableco. ®
