    go to bt openworld see exactly what they give you and then search for them.

    Question

    Their website just displays a blank page in my browser - so it's a little difficult!

    The reason is - it uses javascript to redirect to another page - tries to access a cookie on your machine which tells it whether you're a narrow band or broadband consumer, a business user or just anonymous. Based on that it either sends you to /anon or /default or /businesshome or /anon or /pre/ipcheck

    They should've included a &lt;noscript&gt; &lt;/noscript&gt; part which redirected non-javascript users to a seperate page - you'd think an ISP as big as BTOpenworld would be able to figure this out for themselves!

    Here's the link to the Broadband section - <a href="http://www.btopenworld.com/broadband/" target="_blank">http://www.btopenworld.com/broadband/</a> . However the site does heavily rely on javascript for links.

    Oh - and there isn't supposed to be a picture there - it's supposed to redirect you to a page based on the cookie but as you have javascript disable it won't.

    For cable you'll need a cable-modem/STB which you rent from NTL, this is included in the price.

    This can connect via USB, or if you're performance conscious then you can buy a network card + cable and connect it to that.

    Last time I looked the price was 35/month for 512k.

    Question

    what's the score with NTL? i'm about to move into a new house and there's NTL cable in the area.

    is it reliable, and are they going to feck me about with things like billing me for a tv feed i'll never use (like they've done to several people i know).

    don't know anything about cable and only just started thinking about it, looks like i need another network card in my machine to run a server?

    advice much appreciated, NTL's site is kind of minimal with information.
