If I change my broadband provider would I be certain to get a better speed?
As they all use the same cables anyway, I’m wondering if it would make any difference. I’m with Orange who regularly give me speeds of less than 5 but although they all advertise fantastic speeds it’s well known that these are the maximum and not everyone will get them. By the way, I’m not far from an exchange.
If close to an exchange you should get a lot more than 5mb. Could be your computer might need tweaking before you go to the hassle of changing companies.
(try something like tune up utilities)
Keep in mind that wired is much much faster than wireless so try that.
All companies using the same copper line will have the same speed.
The only other option is to get Virgin Media fibre optic broadband which, is much better.
I pay for 60mb broadband and I actually get around 62.4mb and it never goes under 58mb.
(my other laptop in the bedroom uses wifi and i still get over 22mb on that one!)
Its definitely worth getting fibre optic… Not sure if Sky is doing it as well, but shop around first and see whats available in your area, and compare the prices.
Also cancelling a contract may cost you cancellation fees that you may not have expected.
I hope that helps!
Most places that rent notebooks are going to require minimum 3 month contracts. If you get a notebook it will pretty much work at most hotels and coffee shops over there. All notebooks you get will have wifi built in, but of course you’ll need to use a hotspot.
But if you think youre going to go WWAN (anywhere access) you aren’t going to be able to do this. You would have to PAY for a WWAN card (like tmobile, verizon, cingulair, orange, etc) about 150 US dollars, then have to pay for a WWAN contract at about 60 a month and most of those have 2 year minimums. Even if you get the card here, you would need to make sure it works on their network.
Europe has tons of internet cafe’s and all good hotels will have business centers and will have wifi hotspots for their residents. You’ll have no problem with this option
Have fun on your trip! Good luck in your class!
Who is the cheapest company to connect my mobile via bluetooth to my pc to surf the web in the uk?

Can i put my phone sim into my dongle and get unlimited internet access?
I have a 3G unlimited internet contract on my phone, can i take the sim out of my phone and put it in my 3G dongle and get unlimited internet access on my laptop with no extra charge to my phone bill?
Yeah it is possible to do that , i dont it only i connected my mobile to the computer and used it as i had unlimited mobile internet from orange. But be careful though when you are doing it though, there is a fair usage policy on unlimited tariffs, if you go over that you might get a nasty suprise when you get your next phone bill.
[UK]Whats the best monthly mobile contract for Unlimited data?
I don’t text very much or call very much but i use the internet/data a hell of a lot on my iPhone 36S. I used to be on contract but went pay as you go, i want to switch back but on the lowest contract possible with unlimited data. Im currently on Orange, dont mind moving.
If you particularly want to go on contract then I would suggest 3. However, the lowest they go with unlimited data is £13 per month, for the Samsung Galaxy mini. Have a look at the Ultimate Internet 100 plan, on the page below.
If you want to stick with pay as you go, then I would suggest giffgaff. Have a look at the £10 goodybag, and see if it suits your needs. The unlimited data here is truly unlimited, with no fair use policy. As long as you don’t tether your phone to your laptop, you will be fine.
If you decide to order a giffgaff sim, please do so from the link below. The first time you top up by at least £10, you get an extra £5 credit, and I get 500 points towards payback credit, which earns me £5. I will receive this payback just before Christmas. You can earn payback too, by recruiting customers and participating on the forum. The payback could pay for your usage for the year, if you earn enough of it.
