Well as everyone knows, I have a 1MB link through NTL and I have never 
had a problem, they are still cheaper than BT and I managed to befriend 
one of the *smarter* engineers there who said that they are working on 
2MB!!! Which means you ADSL guys who can't get 2MB because you live too 
far away eat your hearts out hehe :)

Nah, I would suggest sticking with cable, we can create a NTLUG hehehe 
to get our own support going, since all their tech staff are in india! 
(That really annoys me that does, I like giving techs shit, now I have 
to give them shit and deal with the language barrier too!).
