10mb Broadband

My ISP, Telewest Blueyonder, contacted me today to advise that my 4mb Cable Modem connection had now been increased in speed to 10mb. Price remains the same at £35/month.
10mb! The speeds I’m experiencing are actually closer to 8mb, but I’m not grumbling. These are the sorts of speeds I couldn’t even begin to imagine when using a 1200/300bps Modem Connection to dial-up to FidoNet Bulletin Boards as a kid, speeds I knew only large ISP’s used when I upgraded from 33kbps Modem to 128kps ISDN 2e as a young man, and speeds I thought I’d never experience without moving to somewhere like Hong Kong as an adult!
I’m starting to sound like one of those middle age IT Managers who lecture me on how they used ticker tape and mainframes as a youngster, but I don’t care – it’s an exciting time to be a geek.
