The nice thing about 4G though is that it still improves available capacity - traffic that was once on 3G will now be on 4G, so the performance of both should be much better.

Although if you're willing to go on a cheap contract, you could probably get a cheap Windows Phone or a Moto G for about 10 quid a month and you'll get a much more capable phone than the old Nokia...

House prices really started to take off in the Labour era, and that government continued the policy of not building council houses and refusing to force private developers to do the same. Can't have...

I'm aware and I think it's just as much of a con (from both Labour and Conservative governments) - but I see no reason why hypocritical newspapers should be rallying for the poor because they have to...

If the "poor" tenants feel that they can't suffer the injustice of using a separate, but well maintained entrance, then they're quite free to move out and let someone in who will.

Good to see that Vodafone is continuing its glacial pace with 4G as it has done with 3G.

EE/3 aren't much better though, they barely exist in the SW whereas VF and O2 aren't there at all.

They'll just push the costs up on UK domestic usage, because that isn't regulated by Brussels and conveniently increases roaming revenue anyway.

e.g. Vodafone, who announced UK price rises at almost...

I am not that bothered about the lack of the app, I can live with it and wait.

They wouldn't give me the app because they said I had a home signal box, even though I tried to explain that I do have bad signal in other places and am not going to move the box around twice a day.

That must be someone on an impressively long or bad quality line if ADSL is totally unavailable, or on one of the maybe 5 exchanges which never got it.

4GB is still not bad though - it'll upset the 100GB+ a month club but it's better than the "why don't you use that 1GB you pay through the nose for" on other networks.
