Blueyonder Internet Is Getting Faster!
« on: August 12, 2005, 12:19:08 AM »
I'm not sure if this is the correct forum but as its general I guess it is.

Blueyonder Internet announced today that in September they will increase the speed of their service across the board and reduce the price of the premier service by £15.  

I have the 4mb service and it’s going to a whopping 10mb!!! For free and I'll save £15 a month to boot.

512 users will go to 2mb, 1mb to 4mb, 2mb to 10mb and 4mb to 10mb with a price reduction.  

All for free!

Wonder how my Amiga will cope with 10mb on tap, lol

That's good news. I must remember to ask for the monthly statements from my landlord otherwise he may be tempted to fail to advise me of the reduction. At the moment my connection is 1mb...so I will get 4mb, eh?
Yes, man!!! Gimme more power, Igor!

Edit: it seems there may not be a reduction for me, but I still get the speed increase.

Yeah you'll get 4mb for no extra charge  :-o

Edit: only the top of the line service get a cost reduction from £50pm to £35pm X-Ray.

Yah, 10Mbit rocks, nothing better than seeing your downloads race towards you at over 1024KB/s, only seen it a few times though :-D

This is way cool news for both users of NTL/Telewest.

I used to drink Becks, coz it was 99p a bottle in my local years ago.  It's ok, but Stella is my tipple.  Especially the 2 litre bottles. :-)

Mmmm, I used to like that stuff. It tastes gnarly. Now my alcohol "intake" is restricted to mouthwash and bonjela. :inquisitive:
