Is there a reason to be so antagonistic?

I'm just saying that you can't expect it to stay the way it is, as it was never the intention for people like you to do what you're doing.

That doesn't mean that permanent tethering is what 3 intended with the One Plan. If everyone in your area did what you did, you wouldn't be getting 10Mbps either, you'd be getting far less.

Up until very recently (maybe 6-12 months?) Openreach supplied an FTTC modem with every installation. Then they allowed ISPs to integrate the modem into the router, so BT/Sky/TalkTalk and so on have...

It's doubtful that tethering is losing them money (it's not as if they're furiously upgrading the network to cope with the load).

Perhaps if the T&Cs have the usual standard boilerplate that...

If Labour really wants to change (fat chance) they need a full cleansing, from Miliband downwards. Appointing former ministers and their bag carriers to cabinet won't do any good there.

28 quid a month would be hilariously bad value for SIM only, I'd be expecting a phone for that.. Almost up there with EE for hilarious pricing.

12 month sim only is fine, I got one relatively easy from normal CS but the only stipulation was that I had to upgrade from 1 month SIM only to 12 months.

I'm in Feltham a little bit and both the 3G and 4G are rather suspect there. Plenty of signal, no throughput. Airplane mode off/on sometimes helps.
