I've still got the basic 2 meg.

Gets really slow sometimes but its usually alright.

Modem gets horribly hot which is a bit worrying though..

Doesn't sound like your the only one sadly! I think I read something about traffic shaping? I dunno really how they do it. But it seems bad bad bad!

My ntl->vm has been solid since it was installed, some decade or so ago.

Infact I been looking at my modem in the sense that it`s ceiling is meant to be 5m, but I download @ 10m+ - so I have no idea what`s going on there.

Couple with that the less than low-bit encryption cos of it`s age, it`s a good job I got routers and walls b4 any pc gets involved lol

hehe I need a new 1 obviously (should start a thread in networks right now actually)

Erm, think they secretly bumped us 10m to 16 - not sure, sounded like a rumor and I haven`t tested it.
