Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Four people have turned up outside the UK's prestigious Internet Awards in London tonight to protest about NTL's cap on its broadband service.

The plucky group of protesters was barred from entering the hotel but instead targeted those people turning up to the glitzy event by handing out leaflets condemning the cableco's move.

One of the protesters braving the cold night told The Register: "We will not give up our fight."

Those behind the protest plan to present a petition of nearly 3,900 signatures to both NTL executives and the UK Government's e-minister, Steven Timms, concerning the cap.

One vulture-eyed onlooker told The Register: They're determined, but polite." ®
