Not on holiday
Ok, so if you areon the beach with your wife (or someone else's) you shouldn't worry about the net. But some us work outside the UK. My MiFi jobbie stopped working overnight on Friday. (Ít's a rental - but a Three device), fine I thought I can use the shiny new Three Euro pass thingy while they sort it out. That worked for about two hours.
After a long and expensive phone call to a call centre I was told it was being "addressed" - and be completed in 7-8 hours. That was on Saturday afternoon. At my request they agreed to mail/SMS me when it was back up - to avoid me calling them in 8 hours...
It started working again this morning (Monday). Still waiting for the call.
