Telewest Offers Fast 3Mbps Broadband

Posted: 26th Apr, 2004 By: MarkJ
The UK's second largest cable operator, Telewest, has enhanced its blueyonder ISP service with the introduction of a new 3Mbps package. On top of that they've also boosted the speed of almost all existing services (e.g: 512KBps to 750Kbps) without increasing the price!:

Telewest Broadband customers go 50% faster

Shake-up for broadband Britain with over 450,000 net connections set for upgrade

Telewest Broadband is making the most of its advanced fibre optic network by revamping its range of blueyonder internet products to offer faster speeds for the same price as existing services.

The cable company is set to turn up the heat on rival internet providers by permanently boosting the speed of broadband internet connections by 50 per cent, creating another clear benefit for its blueyonder services.

The unique range of access tiers will be available to new customers by the end of May and existing customers will be upgraded, on a region-by-region basis, over the same period. The overhaul will see the following changes:

* blueyonder broadband 750Kb
* The standard blueyonder broadband service will increase in speed from 512Kb to 750Kb, but still cost from only £25 per month

* blueyonder broadband 1.5Mb
* The faster 1Mb service also gets a 50 per cent bandwidth boost to 1.5Mb, for the current price of £35 per month

* blueyonder broadband 3Mb
* The flagship 2Mb service becomes the UK's first residential 3Mb service, offering speeds up to 60 times faster than dial-up access, from £50 a month

* blueyonder broadband 256Kb
The recently launched entry-level service will remain unchanged, costing from just £17.99 per month

Chad Raube, director of internet services at Telewest Broadband, said: "This is the biggest shake-up in the broadband market for some time.

We feel it's time to give customers a broadband boost for no extra cost and offer them something they can't get from any other broadband provider. Combined with the existing benefits of our internet products, this will make choosing blueyonder a no-brainer.
"

The new speeds will mean Telewest Broadband's services are 50 per cent faster than those offered by rival ADSL broadband providers such as BT, AOL and Tiscali, but for a price that's still more affordable than the majority of comparable services.


We commend Telewest for making such an impressive move; hopefully it won’t be used as an excuse to increase prices further down the line.
