i've been using hyperoptic for years, been great never gone down this whole time during lockdown, I have it in my new flat as well. They only really install to new apartment blocks
Hyperoptic are awesome. If I could get it I would. When I did have it I paid for 1gb, speed was down. I complained and they said they upgraded their incoming line to the building and the speed went up. So they were honest, quick and people of their word. Really good company.
True, i myself use Real-Debrid + kodi and like you have no intention of changing, my vpn is set anyway on a router to access US sites such as pEACOCK, cw or US Netflix etc. As you said worst a streamer will get is a letter and ACE are well known for trolling anyway so chances are any case would get thrown out.
I cringe hard when ever I see anyone saying things like "chipped android box" or "chipped firestick". Absourelty nothing to do with any kinda chip.
Yeah that is what all the click bait youtubers want you to think with their referral links lol. I have used usenet for almost 20 years and have no intention of changing Streamers are only downloading not sharing meaning a civil case. Plus the fact they are not sharing then any possible damages will be small so hardly worth their while. Even those making the APKs and the like are only getting letter off ACE. They will eventually step it up with more legal action but so far they are hardly prosecuting anyone other than the odd box seller, they do not even have pubs to chase for sports until they open again

NEW Tesco HTFA4B Hudl 2 8.3" Internet Tablet WiFi 16GB Bluetooth Android Black - £39.99 With Code @ Cheapest_electrical / Ebay£39.99£49.9920% off Free P&P FreeeBay Deals
Mine arrived at the weekend, easy to set up with the App, build and sound itself seem good quality - compared to other products at the same price, Alexa works well and integrates with spotify. Can also be used as a normal bluetooth speak as well of course. Really pleased - thanks OP
I bought one of these recently. Great sounding speaker, quite a bit smaller than I thought but didn’t affect sound. Alexa works well but you can’t multiroom with other Alexa devices for music which is a real shame but it’s not PURE’s fault. That’s Amazon not allowing it. Great controls and functions otherwise, well built with quality materials,. Well worth giving it a go
I think that looks pretty good. After the thread Sonos Roam yesterday I like the idea of a smart portable speaker that I can use in the garden whilst still on my wifi and listen to Amazon music juts by asking Alexa. Most portable bluetooth speakers appear not to be smart with Alexa and if they are they are expensive.
Looks good to me, some average (to quite good) reviews - but based upon the RRP of c. £200. Taken a punt and we'll see how it compares to an echo!
Who knows (confused) - 3 months ago one for £79 went to 187. I’ve given up trying to fathom it out. Used to bother me but not anymore - as long as someone benefits from it then that’s the important thing
Price seems to be back up to £29.97 now. Sadly, I think this deal has expired.
Ideal for those zooming or skyping etc. I wish everyone I had to connect to wore these. No distorted sound, so I can actually hear what the other person is saying. No clipping. No backround sounds. Somone was having a lesson on a baby grand in the background whilst I was trying to give a lesson!
These are great but unfortunately can get damaged quite easily :( Had tow pairs. neither lasted much longer than a year. So if you get these be gentle with them and take care. Great headset jus not very tough.
Good price, thanks for sharing.

If you ever listened to the radio that is. There were many times when we were without a tv set simply because we couldn't afford a new one when our other broke down, so we'd listen to the radio. And in many ways it was so much better. That's more or less gone now, but if just one person gives it a go they'll realise that Netflix ain't all that.
Evokes so much more than a modern day audio book. The days when radio story-telling was done with heart and passion.
Thanks for posting this. I managed to find the Down the Line comedy series. Cheers

Based on my experience of owning a couple of Majority items spares or repairs is what they soon become. By far the worst electricals I've ever bought. The government should fine them a land-fill tax.
So the CD player and the internet radio doesn't work. You could also add the £249 previous price tag is gargage as well (currently new on Amazon at £109.95). Not the most compelling deal I have seen. Doorstop anybody?
Like most 'smart' things then!
I think after very careful consideration I might pass on this deal (confused)
It works so long as that facility is supported by them. It's free as long as they decide not to charge for it. It has no intrinsic internet radio capability, independent of manufacturer's future action or inaction. The Wii being a classic example.

Brilliant. I signed up for the 300 package yesterday. They are quoting 25 days install at the moment. Hopefully I end up with something similar!
I live out in a tiny village on the edge of Buckinghamshire, the fastest I could get was around 200Kbps with ADSL. We had Gigaclear put in as soon as they were available and it's been fantastic.
It used to be the case that you could do a self install. You'd just select how much fibre cable you needed from the roadside pot to you house and away you went. The cable is only laid a few inches underground, so it wasn't too much of a big install, not sure if its still an option though? As for the customer support, I think they're fantastic. Ive had a couple of issues over the past four years with them and on those occasions the first line support has been good but unable to solve the problem. I've then been passed onto technical support within the hour who have been nothing short of brilliant, taking proper ownership of problems, giving you proper explanations and updates, fixing it quickly on both occasions. It does go down occasionally and it feels like they have more maintenance periods. But i think this is more down to how they email you ahead of time for everyone they do. When we we're with BT at our last house, that would just go down without warning, but because they didn't notify you, you'd very quickly forget. When you get the email from Gigaclear, you do think "oh another one" but in reality it happens a few times a year, out of hours and is normally done well ahead of schedule. As for cost, yes it seems expensive, but then you're not paying line rental to BT. We pay for the 300 up and down service, but in reality get 330 on both, so no complaints here.
These guys are coming soon to my area. Fibre to the premises being laid now, under a government subsidised scheme which requires them to bring it to every property. I am at the end of a two mile single track lane with no neighbours, but the engineers showed up scouting the layout. Heard good things from others who have already got it. Might look expensive to city dwellers who have good broadband via their phone line, but out here I can't get that at all. I was paying more than this for satellite broadband, but am now on 4G cellphone based broadband at about the same price as this, only slower- about 12-15Mbps. This is with the Fastershire Broadband Project in Herefordshire and Gloucestershire. Gigaclear are just the ISP provider, and there are others.
Can't see why this is getting cold votes. Could someone explain?
£30 to install something that's worse than a virus. No thanks.
Ao had 11 devices for £11 at the weekend.
Zone alarm think I had Norton before I swapped to that 🙈
Voted cold if you are after this then check very. Same product is £16. I haven't checked if it's cheaper elsewhere . https://www.very.co.uk/mcafee-internet-security-1-device-digital-download/1600500716.prd?Ntt=mcafee
Agree - defender seems fine in 2021, used to be a poor free alternative, maybe that's why I am still reluctant to give it 100% trust. Now I remember using ZONEALARM on Windows XP to protect my ports................and that's going right back (shock)

Thanks, I read up a bit about that, seems its limited (UFO) to York and Dewsbury, correct?
Effectively, all the main suppliers (except BT) use alternative fttp networks where they have access, as they are cheaper and better. If they don’t have access then they go to Openreach.........however, very few supply Openreach’s 900mb as the cost is a joke and BT are preventing them from discounting. UFO is TalkTalks fttp network
I read the article published a few days ago on it being approved. I didn't sign up for the ''Better Than Nothing Beta'' and to be honest, I wouldn't really want to pay £500 upfront for the Beta - What do you think about it? Would you like to see better speeds? It's interesting though for sure and will be keeping an eye on the progress. "SpaceX, founded by Elon Musk in 2002, said in an October 26 email that users in the "Better Than Nothing Beta" — in which a network of nearly 900 satellites is beaming internet service down to Earth — could expect speeds of between 50 Mbps and 150 Mbps." https://www.businessinsider.com/starlink-beta-uk-elon-musk-spacex-satellite-broadband-2021-1?r=US&IR=T
Thoughts on starlink ?
So to clarify UFO (which Talk Talk use) isn't the same as BT Openreach's Ultrafast Full Fibre?

Are these units hardware region-coded as UK units, (like dvd players used to be) , or can I get around this if I use my VPN?
Wait so, of tunein has lost a load of stations, would there be an alternative app/service I could use?
Youmedia. I have one for this very reason. My Google kit only plays UK stations thanks to the lawsuit that tunein was involved with, unless I cast. With this Internet radio, I can add custom stations via the Youmedia platform and I bet with enough fettling, could get it to do so via home assistant.
I know use Replaio, works just as well and has Chromecast support play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hv.replaio

Mine worked fine for a few days - now it just says "connecting" and needs a hard reset all the time.........................anybody else ? Dave
Can anybody guide me through connecting the android app - doesn't seem to find it at all. It's brilliant for £20 - I was messing about with the menus and found one called scanner - which seems to be police/aircraft bands - mainly usa - there is a lot of silence in between the talking but be patient and it's like going back to the 80's with the scanners/cb etc. Thank You to OP.
Had mine for 3 days, and just LOVE it, only downfall is that it has no bluetooth, but instead of putting on the telly to listen to music or bluetooth my phone to a speaker, this is the best for me. So glad that I bought it, and for that price I think it is a steal.
Mine arrived today, ordered it for my dad for his birthday, its absolutely brilliant
