Re: 9 Months delay?
Yeah, 1Gbps with a 10GB download limit. A limit that you will reach in 80 seconds!
That said I now have unlimited downoiads on three with unlimited wi-fi hotspot.... So I could ditch my landline.

"The flight was tracked "live" by 2 transponders which were deliberately turned off."
They weren't turned off, they are actually still broadcasting. If you tune in to the first one using a 405 line set you can see "Singer Presents...ELVIS (68 comeback special)" on a loop.
If you tune into the other transponder using a squarial you'll see an episode of "Up Yer News" from 1990 with Armando Iannucci playing Jack Ruby outside the Dallas Municipal Building.
Everyone knows that it was hijacked by two agents for the CIA, Elvis and Jack Ruby as co-pilot. It was then flown to the moon as part of a conspiracy to cover up the truth about 9/11.
No doubt that this post will be deleted, I can see the black helicopters coming for me now!
If I were the minister.
1. BT should be forced to sell Openreach, the quasi-breakup still has a conflict of interest and Openreach is badly run. Too many contractors for day to day jobs, rather than its own workforce. The job of upgrading this country's infrastructure is huge and hiring contractors makes no sense at all.
2. The people in charge of Ofcom should be fired, they are hopeless, it's proven itself to be completely ineffective and inept .
3. All new build property should be FTTP by law, no new copper, it's nuts (further proof that Openreach is badly run, everything is short-term sticky plasters, nothing is long-term).
4. Openreach should be given 6 months to start using its "dark fibre" or lose it, letting other people use it.
5. Openreach should be forced to share the exact reasons why it hasn't upgraded exchanges and cabinets in a completely open and transparent way. Currently, it not only lies to and misleads the public, but also local authorities and councillors.
6. A complete ban on network and traffic shaping, filtering and download limits. There is no point having a 1000mbps connection with a 1GB a month or day allowance and 512kbps at peak times just won't do. If the network cannot handle it, charge more and upgrade the network.
"xx speed Broadband for £20 inc line rental" is misleading.
Ofcom should have sorted this out 15 years ago when NTL introduced the first data cap.
I travel to France, Germany and Spain and regularly stay in Airbnb properties where they have fibre, proper fibre. This country is a joke. 5th biggest economy in the world, pah!
I use a remote app on Android called "MyAV" to control my Samsung smart TV over Wi-Fi, it does my SkyQ box and my Denon AV receiver too
It also does my Sony Smart TV, Oppo Blu-Ray player, Bush Smart TV, Onkyo Receiver, DirecTV box, Sky Germany Cable box, DishTV Box, LG Smart TV, Roku streamer,SFR Cable box, Pioneer AV Receiver, Anthem AV Receiver, Arcam AV receiver, Pioneer Blu-Ray, Freebox Cable box, Sony Blu-Ray, Philips Hue Lighting, Ziggo cable box, TiVo Cable Box, LIghtwave RF Lighting, Yamaha AV receiver and a tonne of other stuff as I develop the app!
I've actually had to buy 4 Samsung TVs as they've changed the protocols for controlling them 4 times in 5 years!
As you can imagine my house is a bit full of things!
and haven't really regretted it. Still sucks at peak times in central London, but unlimited 4G on three swug the deal for me (30 day contract)
EE are really arrogant, which isn't attractive, they said my contract would continue at the same price... even though it was 2 years and included a phone (S3).
I bought a Note 3 unlocked because I needed it for research (just like the G Watch R that I have just got)... blah..blah
I'd be fine with 3G speeds on any network that actually worked reliably! That said, three is on the whole better and more reliable than EE, especially as I get the train down from Kettering regularly and with EE I only got data at Bedford station. With three I get it for more of the journey which means more work... sad little 6ft panda that I am.
30 day contract, so I am free to be whatever I want to be.
Anyway, I could do with a job as an Android developer... any takers? Nah, didn't think so, guess I will just keep plying my trade on Google Play selling my own software... blah.. too much beer tonight.
It's amazing that they are still going, if they were in the UK they'd be shut down for misleading information.
I don't know if they still do, but they used to advertise as being in the UK with fake addresses. People also sometimes get stung for VAT and import duty, which makes the "great prices" not so great.
