Apple iPad 3G 32GB


why pay £100 more...

....when you can buy a 3 MiFi for £30 or so, with £15 on it, cancel the rolling contract, and use it as a PAYG. You still get the 3G access, but for up to 5 devices, and the positioning works darned well through it too, or you can jailbreak and use a Bluetooth GPS with any of the Satnav options (or you can just tether to your phone).

Other than that, the iPag is a great piece of kit, IF you have a use for it.


O2 and Be Broadband speeds dip

Thumb Up

No slowdown here

Been with O2 on LLU for 10 months now, and other than problems during the extreme cold, which I attribute to line issues, I don't have any complaints.

I sync at 12.5Mbit-15Mbit, and will usually hit that on downloads from a good source. The only recommendation I would make (and it's the same on most ISP's) is to change the router to a better one.

I've been on most other ISP's over time, and so far, O2 LLU is one of the best.
