Vodafone customers moan about sluggish data abroad


I am in Spain right now with an EE SIM and a T-Mobile UK prepay SIM (i.e. 3G only). Both have been excellent throughout with absolutely no issues. when I tried Three SIMs in the last couple of years on their roam like home tariff the experience was awful. I travel a lot for work and honestly never find any issues with EE. I simply do not think that they throttle traffic at all. I suspect after this summer when they see how big their roaming bills are from their foreign network partners they might start to do it!

Reg probe bombshell: How we HACKED mobile voicemail without a PIN


Switch to Hullomail

I use Hullomail. Secure and effective. I am a customer and not an employee before anyone asks! The beauty is it pushes the messages to your phone using a data connection and if you pay £6 a year it forwards them to your email. If you do choose to dial in you must provide a PIN.

New Oyster online service goes live at TfL


What's new?

Hasn't this service been live for a couple of years. Admittedly it was improved about 6 months ago but I have been using this for my expenses for around 2 years?
