Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Logged on to t'internet last night to find out BT had very kindly upgraded my broadband from 512 K/min to 2.2Mb/min, all gratis! Goes like sh*t of the proverbial now.

    Nice people! :D Apparently they are doing this to all customers over the coming months.
     
  2. Yeah, think its due to competitors dropping their prices - just waiting for mine to change :D
     
  3. It is due to competition, advances in technology and them dropping the acceptible levels of loss for ADSL.

    Be aware though, that as more people take advantage of increase in speed, the service you receive will degrade. You can guarantee that BT are not going to increase core internet bandwidth in line with demand, therefore the contention rates go up.

    Still, it was a brucie bonus to get it for nothing.

  4. thats slow isn't it??? :D :D

    i have to make do with a mere 4.6 Meg :D
     
  5. NTL have upgraded all of their speeds. Mine went from 1.5 meg to 3 meg but it now has a 40 gig a month bandwidth cap. No doubt BT will do the same.
     
  6. Not much good for downloading ye olde porn then. easily find 40GB a month. :roll:

    Hmmm, still on dial up here. BT won't upgrade the freakin' exchange due to the low volume of users. The barstewards.
     
  8. for those of you that don't know about NLbroadband upgrades and have not been upgraded yet, just go to their home page and click on the upgradespeed link, and follow instructions easy :lol:
     
  9. Does anyone know if Tiscali are going to upgrade their 1mb connection to a 2 mb?
