They tried to take over Telewest, when Telewest wouldn't give in, the sold up to NTL, that's one of the reasons they were so fast to sell One2One so that Cable and Wireless could takeover Telewest.
I'm still amazed that NTL was able to get away with borrowing so much money and doing agressive takeovers when they didn't have a penny, that's why the Cable industry has never done well(compared to satellite tv), too many takeovers and change of ownership as well as borrowing too much money.
