| || || | Mi-Fi SIM
Question: if I buy a SIM for my mi-fi unit and that SIM comes with a
30-day bundle, when does that 30 day period start? Is it the first
time the SIM registers with the SP, or is it the first time a data
transaction takes place?
I have several such SIMs but haven't used any yet. I suppose it could
be that the first time I go on line I have to give ersonal info so as
such that could/would be...

| || || | Slow Demon Speeds
There are still a few people getting our Internet broadband connection
from Demon. Over the last few days quite a number of us have noticed a
massive drop in download speeds, in my case it's down to less than a
tenth (about 0.6Mbps) of what I would normally be getting.
We were wondering if anyone with other ISPs who use BT lines were having
the same problem.

What's all this media hype about Tim Peake blasting off into space this

Does anyone know the ethernet port speeds of a Superhub 1?
My network is all 1Gb except my desktop which is 100Mb. Having just
got a NAS drive I saw how slow it was, so I bought a 1Gb PCIe card and
boy what a difference that has made. E-mail is quick, once Chrome has
started page download and display is significantly quicker. I can only
guess that the Superhub is also 1Gb but I haven't been...

The main part of our village has just been equipped with FTTC under the BDUK programme. But only when this happened did it become evident that those covered by a long-standing (and smallish) cabinet were not going to get FTTC as part of the subsidy programme (which apparently runs to 2018).
The main part of the village was directly cabled (EO) but now goes via a new FTTC street cabinet directly...

Is there any way to actually tell if my local BT VDSL FTTC cabinet

There is a lot of chatter about the pros and cons of it, but I can't

I though that nowadays one could keep an E-Mail address after changing
