NTL broadband – a pleasant surprise
We moved house recently and this prompted me to investigate an alternative to my existing broadband supplier (Eircom). I rang NTL last week had a pleasant conversation with with an Irish sales guy who gently persuaded me to ugrade to NTL digital to boot (ok, I was kind of planning to at some point so he caught me in a softened up state).
The NTL man arrived on Tuesday and with a bit of tinkering on my part I had broadband connected all over the houseÂ via wireless by 6.00pm. Its the standard packageÂ (3mb download, â‚¬30 a month) and according to the Irish ISPtest its about the same speed as my â‚¬45 a month Eircom package.
Two nice touches,
- They texted me to remind me that the guy was coming the day before he was due to arrive.
- I had a problem when I first connected so I followed the instructions taped to the top of the cable modem (power off PC, power off modem, turn on modem wait 30 secs, turn on PC) for a laugh, and hey presto it worked!
Good job NTL…
