NTL tinkers with broadband products

2 plus 2 is 4

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

NTL is tinkering with a couple of its broadband products to bring them in line with those offered by Telewest.

From 1 June, NTL punters hooked up to the cableco's 2 meg service will see the speed of their service doubled to 4 meg at the same price of £24.99 a month. The upgrades are to be carried out throughout June.

At the same time the firm is to ditch the 75 gig usage limit on its 10 meg service.

The shake-up means that from June both NTL and Telewest will offer broadband products with speeds of up to 10 meg and up to 4 meg. Telewest entry level service sits at 2 meg, while NTL's starts at 1 meg.

In March, NTL and Telewest merged to create a mega cableco with more than five million residential punters in the UK. Last month, NTL confirmed it is to acquire Virgin Mobile as part of a billion pound master plan to create a giant communications company to take on pay TV outfit Sky and incumbent telco BT.

As part of the deal, NTL will adopt the Virgin brand and offer a quad play of TV, phone, internet and mobile services to customers. ®
