Not got 4G at home or work yet, but over Christmas Three seem to have bumped their 3G in both areas. Used to get about 1-2 Mbps at home, now it's 12+. Work has also got a speed bump. If either area...

Three 3G in Hemel is really quick - I get 10+Mbps down every day. 4G not really essential, but there are planned works on the 15th, so maybe that will be switch on!

Do a Google image search for brown hair blonde highlights and you'll see hundreds of examples of how it can look. It's a perfectly normal combination.

It doesn't include any tethering though, so I've no idea why they would cancel it. TBH it's a second line. If they try to force me on to a more expensive plan, I'll port my number out and cancel it.

I've not had a text or calls on my main number, but oddly they've started to call my other number every day, which isn't even on the One Plan, it's just an old AYCE 12.90 deal.
