why is this cold? seems like a decent alternative to fixed line broadband without having to pay line rental. it's also portable so you can take it with you when you're on holiday, away on business etc
agree with previous reviewer. if you relatively low Internet user and would check current usage over say 6 mth period. you'd be surprised how much use.check coverage aswell. but given landline/Virgin reguire you to pay lune rental at £15 approx. then only £10 for 50gb which works out at 20p per GB. so why cold votes?
I have to pay £50 a month for satellite broadband (30GB a month data) because I can't get landline broadband where I live. This would be a great alternative, except I can't get a cellphone signal either (let alone 3G/4G).
I posted this yesterday, the reason some people are voting cold I think is you can pick them up for £25 then use one of the EE sim only deals with them, I.e. Lots of GB for £10.

Simple solution for that!

Actually in the case of at least some of the satellite earth stations the little Dish sitting on a trailer in the corner, well that can actually shift more data than the massive dish sitting on top of the bunker ;-)

Looks a lot less impressive though.

At least that was what I was told when I toured one of the sites many years back, can easily believe it as well given the trailer will be using a lot newer kit than what's connected to the large dish.
Seems spending £1200 would be 'cooler' keeping up with the Jonses lol

Cute, but not actually pertinent. The dish I have is good for faster speeds and more data, but the cost is determined by what the service provider charges, i.e. I could have more data if I paid more. The EE charges are lower, if only I could get a signal from them. The other problem with the satellite is latency, 22,000 miles up to geostationary orbit and 22,000 miles back down again for every packet, so ping times approach three quarters of a second. Some services are affected more than others.

Cant you get a repeater ?
This is a smoking hot deal. I get 50mb's per second through EE.
I get 1.5 MB's per second on land line and can't get bloody cable.

Best alternative is £30 for 25 GB mobile data.... People that don't understand or don't live in the back of beyond are voting cold.

The repeater wouldn't get a signal either. There just isn't any out here.

You will just have to trust that I have the requisite abilities to make the required determination. Did you know that you can go online and consult the cellphone supplier's own maps? I don't even get phone service at my house. 3G or 4G data is literally miles away. In any case, out here in the countryside, a postcode covers a huge area. Houses a mile and a half away from mine have the same postcode.

Being so rude its probably a blessing on humanity you cant get a signal.

I haven't been rude to you. Rude is implying that someone else is incapable of determining whether they can get a cellphone signal at their own house, and then demanding that they reveal their address on a public forum so that you can check up on them and put them straight.

I have experience of such set ups with better equipment than a 'cell phone', a postcode a address ? Hardly...

Anyway, I offered help but I am now retracting such, you can pay a specialist £500+ for a site survey.

As I have already posted, I do not rely on a cellphone as the only means of testing coverage, though the fact that you cannot even get phone service at my home is a pretty good indication that you won't get data, and of course I have smart phones with data indicators that do not receive high speed data even when they manage a phone signal at some distance up the hill from the house. The providers' own online maps show that data is not available anywhere near. I note that you are still rudely implying that I am not capable of making this simple determination, and it is simple at my location.

I am puzzled by your placing the words cell phone in quotes. In my post I used the less common variant in which it is written as single word i.e. cellphone, but that is not how you quote it. Do you mean to indicate dissatisfaction with my choice of variant? If that is the case, I note your pedanticism, but will continue to employ my own preferences.

A postcode is a major determinant of an address, though not very precise out where I live, as I have said. It is in fact useless for mapping cellphone reception (or the associated data reception) out here, as the same postcode covers miles of landscape, rendering your request for mine moot, as well as creepy. So much for your valuable expertise, which I do not need and have not requested.

The only interference around here is you around the forum rules and how to treat other board users.

I offered assistance, your reply was nothing but derogatory and rude in tone and manner. End of ( just like this conversation).

Your first offer of help was to suggest that I get a repeater. My reply was: "The repeater wouldn't get a signal either. There just isn't any out here."

Please point out the rudeness and how the forum protocols were breached in that post. Of course, when you persisted in "helping" me to overcome my obviously mistaken belief that there is no signal available at my home, a location you know nothing about, my response was more detailed, in particular in regards to the idea that my postcode would be of any use in making such determination.

I have noticed in the past that I am often accused of various character failings by posters who have an inflated opinion of their own abilities vis-à-vis other random posters that they encounter online. They don't like feeling deflated. It is, however, a mistake to assume that others do not know what they are talking about simply because you think you do.

Enough now. Thank you
