Telewest - Scots First To Get 10Mbps

Posted: 23rd Sep, 2005 By: MarkJ
Telewest Broadband has carried out the first round of its promised Internet speed increases (up to 10Mbps), with 40,000 customers in Scotland breaking new bandwidth barriers today:

Speed-loving surfers in Motherwell, Dumbarton, Castlecary and Uddingston will see their home connections boosted for the second time in 12 months, at no extra cost.

Leading the pack is the blueyonder elite service, offering blistering downloads of up to 10Mbp/s - the fastest home internet connection currently available.

Customers will be able to access files like music, software and games up to five times faster than the speediest home internet service from BT.

The cable company has also announced the roll-out schedule for other areas of the UK, with a further 100,000 customers in London set to receive bandwidth boosts by the end of September. All customers in Scotland will be upgraded by the end of October. For information on the next phase of the speed upgrades, customers can visit: http://www.blueyonder.co.uk/evenfaster .

The following tiers of service are now on offer in parts of Scotland:

blueyonder broadband
Previously 512Kbp/s (kilobits per second), the entry-level service is now up to 2Mbp/s (megabits per second), for the same price of £17.99 per month

blueyonder broadband complete
The standard 1Mb service now offer super-fast surfing of up to 4Mbp/s, still at £25 per month

blueyonder broadband elite
The current 2Mb and 4Mb options have been replaced by a flagship service offering speeds of up to 10Mbp/s, which will cost only £35 per month

All the tiers will remain free of usage limitations.
