    Cable Broadband?

    I have a cable line and I was wondering if there's any other broadband providers apart from Virgin?

    Cheers, Stuart.

    No, cable broadband does not work through the phone line.

    On Your Cable Line---no

    I can't remember if there are any local cable companies left, but for the vast majority of people, nope.

    I've been with them (and Telewest) for several years and haven't had any probs with the internet side of things.

    Are you sure? :? Do you get TV, phone or anything as well?

    At the mo, for just broadband and phone it's ]£15.50 a month for 2Mb and ]£27.00 a month for 4Mb (which is being upgraded to 10Mb IIRC)

    I would have thought you could negotiate a better deal with them. Have you tried calling them and asking them about it? If they insist it's that much, try giving retentions a call, say that you want a faster net connection but that's too big a difference to pay, so you are thinking of leaving and going for Sky and ADSL instead.
