Default Its all getting complicated now

PIPEX are still the same ATM with no cap on their normal service (and my
service)

Plusnet, Tiscali and BT all have Caps? Freedom 2 Surf as well, but they all
have different caps!

What other ISPs have caps?


Also I think the increase in speed is exatcly that, speeds up the time it
takes to download stuff, it probably wouldnt increase the amount of stuff i
download (by much anyway)

i see the future as movie streams at high quality but that aint happening
ATM

BT to massively expand SDSL

BT has said that 1,300 of its telephone exchanges around the UK will
support symmetric digital subscriber line within 12 months.

For many businesses SDSL is more suitable than asymmetric digital
subscriber line (ADSL) because it allows them to send data at the same
high speed as they receive it.

BT said it would have around 300 exchanges capable of supporting SDSL
by the end of March, and would upgrade a further 1,000 in two stages
from April.

Most of the new SDSL exchanges are in urban areas that serve large
numbers of businesses, although some serve remote areas with a large
cluster of businesses, such as business parks.

Other telecom suppliers are struggling to provide SDSL outside the
biggest cities. Bulldog, BT's main SDSL rival in London, has not yet
announced any plans to offer SDSL services outside London, despite its
acquisition by Cable & Wireless last year as part of C&W's DSL
expansion strategy.

Nildram (a.k.a. Pipex) just put in a cap on thier newsgroup access and
outsourced it to Giganews. Don't know if there will be any other caps
introduced... probably none soon, but the newsserver sucks.
