I have now been a customer of Ntl for about three years, when they introduced ntlworld, their internet access fro 1p per minute I subscribed. The minute they introduced their “FREE” internet access I requested a disk. Although the disk should have taken only 28days after the pre...

“Well worth the wait”

published 23/09/2000

after waiting for the NTLworld Cd for 3 months i expected a lot from the service and i wasn't disappointed at all. The First truly free ISP in the UK seems to good to be true, but it doesn't get more real than this. First time connection 100% of the time means no hassle, the home page is second...

Software on CD isn't great

... I highly recommend it. I ordered my CD in December 1999, and received it during the second week of April 2000 - just a week after the service was (un)officially launched. Since then, I've enjoyed nothing but free, quality 24/7 internet connections. The service is reliable and fast. I've only...

“NTL Universe”

published 27/04/2002

Cheap Internet Access, Very Reliable

2 Hour disconnect

NTL World, a great service at a very very low price. I aquired NTL world aound Feburary 2002 time, when I was moved to them from Cable and Wireless. When I first had NTL world, i was quite surprised to find that it was completely free, yet the service was excellent aswell. After this though, I...

Cheap, Good Connection Speeds

2 Hour Disconnect

Until about 3 months ago i had been with Worldonline. That was until i got an e-mail saying that the next time i connected i would have to re-subscribe for free to change to the new company that took them over (Tiscali). Well OK i thought. Anyaway, i connected then following day and sure enough...

Free Access. Fast. Easy to use. Many features

Have to use software. Possible waiting times.

Internet access through an 0800 number with **NO** monthly fees? Sounds to good to be true? Well it's true. Towards the end of last year NTL launched a new internet service called NTL Home. I've been using it for half a year now, and would like to share my cable experience with you! What is NTL...

It's free

A bit slow sometimes

I thought it was high time that I told you people about my experiences with NTL world. Well when I first signed up for it I had a few problems, but the main reason I did so was because of the 24 hour a day, 7 days a week free Internet calls. (Basically I’m tight! But truthfully I...

Fuels addiciton to the net!

I started 'surfing the net' with the preinstalled ISP Lineone when I bought my PC back in the dark ages of 1998. At that time Lineone were charging £10 per month with local call charges on top of that. My phone bills were regularly £300+ a quarter, at one point I was paying BT £140 a month...

I took on ntlworld as soon as I heard about their offer, and pre-registered on their website. I received the disk promptly, and set it up on my machine. I work in the telecoms industry, and know all about how they are subsidising the free internet access with other call revenues, but for me...

Slow and often unworkable

My family and I have been using the NTL cable and TV internet service for about a year now and I have to say that other than the fact that our telephone bills are now SLIGHTLY cheaper, as a whole we are not terribly impressed. NTL DOES offer many fun and useful services through this facility...

NTL World. Is it any good? Well, if you can’t be bothered reading this opinion, then yes, but it seems to depend on where you live and which server you dial upto as to the service that you get. Right, so what is NTL World? Well it is basically a ‘free’ ISP. Free is not quite...

“ANOTHER NTL review!!”

published 06/07/2006

Easy to sign up to.

Terrible customer service, unreliable connection

Having reviewed NTL's phone service a few years ago I have now decided to write another one, this time on my experience of NTL as an ISP. I first subscribed to NTL's broadband service when I updated my computer in 2002 and decided that I would like to transfer to broadband so as to end the high...

“24/7 access all of it free!”

published 29/07/2000

Fast, fairly reliable and completly free access

Disconnected every 2 hours, expensive support

I always knew that sooner or later ISP's would have to become unmetered. What I didnt realise is that there would come a time that I would be able to get 24/7 access without paying a penny more than I already did. Back in September 99 I moved into a flat that had no telephone line at all as such...
