NTL & Telewest - 1M+ Broadband Users

Posted: 30th Apr, 2003 By: MarkJ
UK cable operators NTL and Telewest (combined) have today officially announced enabling more than one million broadband cable modem Internet access customers!:

One million customers choose broadband cable

* Milestone of one million cable modem customers in the UK passed today
* Cable industry continues to drive broadband Britain

NTL Incorporated and Telewest Broadband today announced that over one million homes across the UK are enjoying the benefits of fast, always on internet access via cable.

Both NTL and Telewest Broadband have led the charge to create broadband Britain by providing an innovative range of broadband services, offering great value for money and maintaining a rigorous focus on product quality.

The high quality of the cable modem product range is significant. Both companies estimate that, where there is a choice between cable broadband and ADSL, around three out of four consumers choose cable. As a result, broadband cable products are attracting significant levels of new customers to the overall cable proposition, as well as appealing to existing dial up internet customers.

e-Commerce Minister Stephen Timms said: "It was just six months ago that the UK tipped the one million broadband subscriptions mark. I am delighted that in this short time this has become 1 million connections via cable alone. This is testament to the fiercely competitive market that is fast emerging in the UK, ensuring customer choice, value for money and quality of service.

The challenge now is to extend this choice to users across the UK, and particularly in rural areas. So that no matter where we base our businesses and make our homes, we can all benefit from the significant benefits that broadband offers.
"

Barclay Knapp, Chief Executive Officer of NTL Incorporated said: "The history of broadband Britain will show that the cable industry drove its development. Our strategy of offering a choice of speeds at prices which offer outstanding value, coupled with high quality performance, has been hugely successful."

Charles Burdick, managing directing, of Telewest said: "Cable was not only the first, but is still the consumers preferred choice for fast and always on internet access. This is a significant milestone for the cable industry and broadband internet"

In the UK, over 12 million homes are able to receive cable modem services.
