Xiaomi Redmi 4X Pro..
And only gets excited for Android when it's a Huawei..
@Matthew42 We have speed tiers in NZ UFB, and it hasn't seemed to have damaged the system in the way you describe. I'm on 50/10, previously on 100/20 and those who want it can get 1000/500 for not a huge increase in the wholesale price from Chorus. Network build is chugging along nicely.
That is already the reality in NZ, even with our flashy FTTP infrastructure. The two big telcos really pushing fixed wireless for lower usage customers.
Is it fines only or compensation also?
Microsoft need a geography lesson if Canberra is now Australia Central.
Why was he feeding flower bulbs to birds visiting his bird feeder? What kind of sick mind plays those kinds of tricks on our innocent avian friends.

I assume the fourth phase is 'Replace Me'

My parents, in a small North Wales village were connected to FTTP recently, after being on the end of a 5km ADSL line previously. It's great when I visited, and set them up so their phones were actually using it. Was built using funding from the EU though, so good luck for any other similar villages..
I know Xiaomi were prevented from marketing and selling their phones in most Western markets under the threat of severe patent litigation from one incumbant or another. My last few phones have all been Xiaomi direct from China and they are great, the Redmi 4X Pro is seriously the best bang for buck phone out there right now.

If there is enough water and not much lithium it should do the trick eventually..
Basic things like displaying the on screen keyboard having a five second lag, and safari being a crashing mess too. iPad2 still good for casual gaming, that's about it.
If it was anywhere except a research lab they'd be charged with animal cruelty. Sounds like they just enjoy this, and tag on some potential human benefit at some vague point in the future to justify it.
Anybody who watched Blake's 7 knows that voice activated computers ought to
1) Confirm their activation word with a chime or a very irascible "yes?"
2) Ask "Confirm?" after being given an order.
Given that an 80's TV sci-fi scriptwriter can get it right, it's a little sad that Google, Amazon et al. can't quite manage to get there.
To which said toddler replies 'yes'
Measuring coverage by landmass instead of population percentage makes that report is a load of rubbish - it has NZ even worse than UK, when it has nationwide 4G coverage, and according to Akamai some of the fastest mobile data speeds. Band 28 (700mhz) rolled out near nationally for less urban areas, and the globally popular 1800 and 2100 bands in urban areas.
The Frankfurt data centre is probably direct Post Brexit investment as they'd likely need a mainland Europe base to comply with data protection laws etc.
I find Cortana pretty cruddy compared to googles voice recognition, specifically the ability to convert what you are saying into recognisable sentences, whereas Cortana likes sticking in random words that don't make sense in the overall context of the sentence.
Surely they should leave the radar reflectors on at all times in peacetime - otherwise would it not be relatively for an enemy easy to scan and save the stealthy radar profile to use in time of war?
Vodafone NZ and Spark both offer fixed line wireless plans - can't Vodafone do the same in Aus to bypass NBN for some users?
The wholesale price of 100/20 fibre is only a couple of dollars extra a month than the 30/10 basic offering - so the ISPs can market faster speed for pretty much the same price. The wholesale price only really jumps up by 20-30 dollars a month for the 200/200 plans or 1000/500 plans.
Commentards like this one is why the El Reg is so good.
Adding HomeKit installation seems like a short cut to commoditising your product.
1000/500 service going live next month in most centres for $120 a month (NZ$ or AU$, pretty much at parity) and the FTTP rollout finished in a couple of years. That was after FTTN was completed back in 2008, so lots can have VDSL while they are waiting.
Agree Centrino would be a better name. I always associate Celeron with cruddy cheapo systems.
Be careul, you're beginning to sound like a typical self-entitled Audi driver
That pizza photo was cruelly delicious looking. As a non-Italian vegetarian I didn't even notice the salami.
At least it's not just me that happens to then..
Still amazed that revenue is as high as $602m. And how do they mange to spend that much money, with so few staff, to manage to make a loss?
The have all but pulled the plug already
then saw the map of the cable - it brushes the Aleutian Islands to get the shortest fastest route.
UK's fault for having such obscure 4G bands (everyone apart from EE at least)

Here in NZ we are in middle of the FTTP rollout, which seems to be progressing as well as it can be.
Also excellent 4G coverage, including 700mhz for more rural areas, and we are starting to see the first offerings from the mobile companies for fixed home wireless broadband. Costs about 40quid for 80GB, it won't ever be unlimited though, which you can get for about same price on adsl, vdsl (FTTC already completed 5yrs ago) or fibre.
Had so many prompts that wi-fi sense needs my attention. Not any longer then.
"Sadly my knees are shot now - I can go up OK, but coming down became agony"
Buy a paraglider.
My GPON fibre terminal consumes a bit of electricity at my place, is not too bad a deal.
Wow, what a cock up. I thought the whole FTTN build was planned with this knowledge to upgrade to GPON in the future without a full re-build.
Compared to the train wreck that is Australias's NBN, The NZ UFB project is a model of efficiency and managed costs. Written on my 100/20 fibre to the home connection.
Well done Microsoft for another nail in the Windows Phone coffin.
My two year old Lumia 735, bought for less money than the launch price of the 650, has superior specifications in every regard.
This is a budget phone in budget hardware for mid-range phone price.
Most people shudder at installing structured cabling in their homes, but that seems to be the requirement for these future wifi technologies. Not too hard in a lot of houses to install multiple APs from the ceiling space.
unless you live in Wales.
I thought it was the US senate, referring to an example of Uber tax dodging in Australia.
From a networking technology position it is sensible - wireless is heaviliy effected by contention and more congested it is, from maybe just a few users on your cell tower, the worse the experience is for everyone.
That's what happens when marketing triumphs over engineers, and then have to weasel their way out of it. Meanwhile in New Zealand we're fairly content with ~3GB data limits per month and world leading 3G and 4G speeds.
If New Zealand is not an economic peer, does that mean it is more developed than Australia?
The photo of the Ferrari cabin with the console looks pretty rubbish. Would you not get the same effect just sticking the iphone there with blu-tack, and bluetooth the sound to the car speakers?
It seems that every make of car is jumping on the 'ridges along the door handles level' bandwagon this year.
Will people's phones all be compatible after the MVNO network switch - are the 3G and 4G frequencies the same?
Strange how these big players can be very hard to notice. Quietly racking up big profits but no-one really knows they exist, when the big well known industry players seem to be struggling to maintain their profit margins.
