"[COLOR=#1951B9]NTL is to boost the speed of its broadband service at no extra cost - 150K service is upgrading to 300k although the price will remain 17.99 a month. The 600K service is to increase to 750K (24.99) while its 1MB service ramps up to 1.5MB (37.99). NTL's gear-shift will take place in the summer, a little later than Telewest, which upgrades in May.[/COLOR]"
