    BT Broadband Charges

    They're buggered once 5g gets up and running. Verizon in the US are offering a 300mbit 5g package. Eventually there will be no need for a wired phone at home. http://www.lightreading.com/mobile/5g/verizon-to-launch-fixed-5g-service-on-oct-1/d/d-id/746018

    My v6 of the hub is not great for reliablility that was is why i'm going for a wired CCTV system rather than IP cameras have not reported it yet but i will this week and see what they say, funny how we moan about speed issues i remember your Times article where you were moaning about being stuck on dial up, now look were moaning if we don't get 50mbits

    BT Broadband Charges

    Well I have switched to Sky Q for my fibre (already using Q for my TV which is great) however, the Sky Q router wifi is very poor compared to the BT Hub. Still tinkering around and I have an engineer calling tomorrow, not sure what they think he can do that I can't but we will see. Connection at the router is fine but speeds drops MASSIVELY over wifi, which was not the case with BT.

    Don't use visaprint! They advertise very cheap printing - it's bollox. They add something to the price on every turn - never mention VAT or postal charges until the final page so 500 business cards for £9.99 turns into £35.00 for basic cards. I wanted a clear company logo sticker to stick on the inside of my cars back window - just the lettering and logo to be visible I explained it carefully to them and sent the logo artwork. - what did I get? The clear parts were white, it was printed with an inkjet and you could see lines through it and worst of all the sticky side was on the back. Meaning if I used it, I would have to stick it on the outside of the window. I couldn't use it as it would have obscured my rear view vision. After much arguing and threatening and 9 months - I got my money back. I went to a local printing/graphics company and they made me 4 for £40.

    BT Broadband Charges

    Virgin are no angels but their broadband is awesome. The trouble is they bundle a house phone in every package. (you can't get any package without a phone) And the phoneline is expensive Mon -Fri (no off peak or after 6 free calls) It's like a dead weight because we never use it. I often threaten to leave - tell them I can't afford it on my pension (I don't have a pension, I still work) and they always reduce the price and up my broadband speed. On 200MB at mo and aiming for the 350MB.

    BT Broadband Charges

    Like you i'm on BT and had signed an 18 month contract about 6 months ago and got £150 credit card £80 cashback and then they go with the price increase, so waited till i got my email and was able to get it down to £21.99 but if i went DD i could knock another £2 a month off that making it £19.99 18 month new contract and a speed increase giving me 80/20 (no idea what it is called) and as a rule they are ok for me anyway. I will NEVER give sky another penny, even if they offered me 1gbit service for nothing i would turn it down, some companies do something so bad you never go back and Sky is one of them. Sometimes you have to make a stand and with Sky/Dixons etc i take a stand with them and they can shove their service up their rear end, that being said i hope the move goes well. All1

    BT Broadband Charges

    I have been with BT for years and years for my Broadband, I am aware that there have been cheaper options available but I have stuck with them. I have Infinity 2 ( they may have renamed this service now) I currently pay £47.98 per month Broadband - £24.99 Line Rental - £18.99 Free Eve and Weekend Calls - £4.00 My 18 month contract is due to end I believe March 2019. Earlier this year in February I received a letter explaining that there was going to be another small price increase and I had 30 days from the date of the letter in order to be able to leave my contract early because of the price increase, but I was away a lot on business and by time I had got around to calling BT as I had found a much better deal on Vodafone I was 1 day over and the girl more or less sniggered as she informed me. That really wound me up at the time. Guess what? Yes, BT have written to me yet again advising of another price increase in September, again I have received a letter explaining that I have 30 days in which I can leave my contract, so I called BT and the gentlemen who was based in India said that the best that they could offer me was to keep my price the same without the increase for 18 months. I then spoke with Sky, not only have they offered me exactly the same deal but for £30.00 (18 months) but they also reduced my TV package for Sky Q from £74 down to £53 but then gave another £5.00 discount because I was moving my fibre broadband to them, so TV is now £47.00 and Broadband is now £30.00, that is a saving of £830! I told Sky to go-ahead, BT have now contacted me because they have received a cancellation notice, I spoke to a gentlemen who said that he had spoken with his supervisor and could offer me the same Broadband package that I am already on for £1 yes £1 plus £18.99 line rental so a total of £19.99 per month, oh and then he added the £4 for the free evening and weekend calls giving a grand total of £23.99 per month (18 months) I told them to shove it! So BT through their own greed wanted to put my already expensive price of £48 per month up yet again which in turn has promoted me to look at alternatives and now because I am leaving they offer me a price that is less than half the price that I am paying now. I remember from when I had Sky Broadband a longtime ago that it was pretty good, so I hope that there service is still the same.

    Hello!! How is the weather there?
  20. Sorry to hear that mate It's a dilemma we've all thought about. Having seen my wifes auntie turn in to a lump of living meat with no bowel control and unable to eat or drink - so they hooked her up to a drip for food and water??? I said I don't ever want to be like that - but it happens in degrees - slowly.

    Appy Burpday JamersPad Oh, and Grumps...... stories of your demise were a bit premature on the Rivet then, we haven't seen you for months
  22. Shit man ! That's some serious stuff ! I don't know where to start on this one, but I do/did have a mate that took the Dignitas Clinic route a couple of years ago....... totally in secret, none of us knew anything until the day after she did it ! I'm NOT recommending that, I never would, I'd always be the one to err on the side of "it will all be OK with the right care and attention from yourself and your medics", but if it ever does look like the prognosis is BAD, and I mean very BAD........... I'm saying no more.

    Hola ! from Mehiko

    Well, so much for coming back to the UK last month !I left Saudi (maybe only temporarily) and ended up in Norway again, sorting out all my shit from the last time I was there, and putting my van back on the road to bring it all to the UK.Then...... out of the blue...... Hi Phil, how do you fancy 6 months in Mexico ?Well the $$ rate was too good to refuse, so here I am, in Queretaro in central Mexico, topping up the bank balance, and the suntan, oggling the beautiful señoritas, and downing copious quantities of Corona by the pool at £1 a bottle.
  24. HI All, not a great post this one but something that i have to do while i can. I have just had a stroke and have come out of this on very well, compared to others i had seen on the wards. and has made me to make some life changing decisions. Now i know the only thing in life that is guaranteed is we will all die one day, however one fear i now have is having another stroke and being left a vegetable (no fooking emoji for that one Jamer) and i do not want that for myself or my Mrs although she says she would be happy to look after me but i can't face that, so some things i need to work out, first off she know sod all about the internet so all bill will be changed to a provider that works offline not ONLY online, all bills will be joint name, bank accounts have already been done. On top of this comes a very sticky issue and that is what happens to me when i have another stroke and I’m a veggie, well for me it's easy give me a massive overdose of some drug and send me on my way like i would do with a pet (if i had one) but this cannot happen in the uk if my understanding is right, I want to be able to have something drawn up that nobody can object to saying if I’m in a situation where i have no control over making my own decisions then I would want the quickest way to die, which i presume would be withdrawing of all food and fluids that way i guess i would be dead within a week not as quick as i would have liked but at it's only a week of suffering not decades. In a nutshell IMO English law if fooked up in this kind of area and am looking for the best way to die (meaning quickest) rather than being stuck in my own body with some stranger wiping my backside, now having said that if there is no realistic way of doing something like this I will be left with no option but to look at jumping before being pushed and that is not something i can discuss in any great detail on here as Jamer could be in the dodo, but if you want to chat away from here drop me a PM and I will give you my email addy or mobile number.

    Anyone have a wired CCTV system?

    Down here in London it's between £200-£300 which to be honest seems a bit steep but that's London for you i guess
