It will simply tell you what speed you're going, accurately in nearly all cases. No, it can't recognise what the limits are accurately all the time - you should look for that yourself.

I find that advice from the RAC rather silly. I mean, the RAC is clearly playing safe on the same basis.

The speedo will be wrong on almost all cars on the road now (how many ancient 'classics' are...

I've mentioned this in two other threads so I apologise, but yesterday I did some testing that showed Three's speeds seem to be getting worse, not better.

No problem getting 4G everywhere I went,...

I know we like to talk about the weather a lot in the UK, but I do think the weather forecasts are now trying too hard to be entertaining and seem to take rather a long time to just get to the point...

Because of the law, car makers certainly do play very safe and offset the reading by as much as 4mph, so chances are anyone driving a modern(ish) car at 30mph on the gauge is likely doing...

Yes, and I should have added the ping times to my data.

The good thing is that data worked every time, which is an improvement over a year ago. O2 was very poor then, and I didn't test Vodafone so...

Me too. Only last week they were demonstrating Cat 6 LTE and speeds of over 300Mbps!

Of course that would have been a staged test, using local equipment within the venue and perhaps if I'd gone...

Three was indeed very slow. And I noticed this a couple of weeks ago which prompted me to do some more testing. I'd love to know the reason why.

What was surprising is that even by EE's HQ, Wembley...

It might be a different version though. Yesterday there seemed to be some confusion, as the release said it was Cat 6 LTE, but it was then stated that it will only be Cat 4. We also saw dual SIM...

Three sought to acquire customers by offering discounts of up to 10 a month, later reduced to 5 a month, on some tariffs.

There's nothing to say Three couldn't do that, but discounts/sales don't...

I didn't just reply to you. No need to feel singled out, but you did talk in a way that suggested you thought it was a new thing that hasn't caught on.

It might not be mass market, but it has...

Erm, I think you're missing the point (points) with it. It's the convenience of dropping it down when not in use and it charges. No wires to connect, no hassle.

When you pick it up, of course it's...

55 for the 128GB SanDisk on Amazon now, which is pretty decent IMO. I've never seen anyone sell the 128GB card for its suggested retail price, so hope the 200GB will 'only' be around 200 and soon...
