Well, for the home user, I'd guess it would be ADSL2, which is "up to"
24mbits, although realistically, you will rarely see much more than a
megabyte per second. You will find yourself hitting the uploaders speed
limit though, which is nice.

Start looking at www.bethere.co.uk and then work your way through the
regular ukonline/bulldog/etc providers.

I switched away from NTL after being with them for over 4 years. They just
cost too much for the service they provide, and I've watched them slowly
erode that service chunk by chunk since signing up with them late 2001.
