UPC increases speed Internet customers with older subscriptions




Cable operator UPC customers does propose to increase. The Internet speed of customers sharply According to a mail from the cable company that Tweakers a reader was forwarded. UPC wants customers with old subscriptions provide access to new equipment and Internet speeds.

Mail UPC: Internet to 120Mbit / s Customers who receive the offer, accept the new conditions without being tied down. A new subscription The tweaker who sent through the mail, will double the internet speed to 120Mbit / s. He has a packet to the Internet at 60Mbit / s and voice, he tells Tweakers. The subscription is five cents per month more expensive.

The upload speed remains probably the same. UPC offers other subscribers 120Mbit / s even with the same upload 6Mbit / s as applicable at 60Mbit / s. The option of 60Mbit / s is no longer available from the cable company.

UPC confirms to Tweakers it does offer the customers to get more speed. Before “about the same money” “These are people who have completed a long time ago a subscription,” said spokesman Ronald Sutmuller. “They are not something we’re more in line with what we offer new clients and what is possible for that money at UPC.”

Not everyone gets at once an offer and, moreover, it is not valid for all customers. “It’s a select group. Many of those customers are also still with older modems that we replace the same.” It is according Sutmuller not just the internet speed, but also services such as digital TV.

For other customers worsen the conditions right, so recently. Showed Mutually almost free calls between customers disappear on January 1. That will then probably around 10 cents per minute charges.
