Re: Movistar ADSL price increase...

They are installing the cables all over the village currently. I'm going in to see them tomorrow to check availability.

Re: Movistar ADSL price increase...

Thanks Flexo but with two fibre optic services passing the door I won't be going to satellite.

Re: Movistar ADSL price increase...

I have found the prices web page for Wi-Max and I'll PM it to you Mary. They are fibre-optic now and are offering broadband only at 20Mbs download speed for 18€ p.m. inc IVA. They don't disclose upload speed. There are broadband/telephone options too. They also have 'Fusion' options with mobile phon...

Movistar ADSL price increase...

I see from a letter attached to my recent bill that, in the face of mounting competition, Movistar are raising their internet connection price from Jan 2016. 'Only' another couple of euros a month but it has prompted me to check out the two cable alternatives in our village.

Re: Another VPN (Browsec) Question!

Channel 4 also considers Ghostery an ad blocker. I have to switch both off for it to work.

Re: VPN for BBC iPlayer

There is a recent note on BBC iPlayer Help that states that if a VPN is detected iPlayer will reject the connection. They acknowledge that some in UK are using a VPN for purposes other than spoofing location but say something to the effect of 'that's tough, you'll just have to switch the VPN off'.

Re: Setup a tv for VPN?

Thanks both.Very clear explanation. I don't have a VPN enabled router yet but wanted to check the pathways available before making a decision. Much appreciated.

Setup a tv for VPN?

I'm a bit out of the loop on TV developments. Can modern TVs be themselves setup to connect through my VPN service or must that always be done in the router?

Re: Volkswagen.

Oh what a pity. I thought they allowed non-subscribers a few free views per month before dropping the curtain. I guess that has changed. It was describing how the software was used to fool the lab testers. It could detect if only two wheels were turning (on the dyno), if there was an unusually const...

Re: Volkswagen.

Certainly some Audi models are affected in US. The FT are just reporting VW as saying there are eleven million affected vehicles worldwide and have set aside 6.5 billion euros this quarter for rectification purposes.

Re: Volkswagen.

http://tinyurl.com/ozo5n65 Thanks DA. That addresses my question. If I understand it correctly the recall will be to carry out as yet undetermined rectifications to reduce NOx to acceptable standards. Interesting the letter states that the affected vehicles are now currently uncertified and therefo...

Volkswagen.

There is a lot in the papers about Volkswagen fiddling their onboard software to fool labs that diesel emissions are a lot lower than they actually are on the road. The reports then go on to say that tens of thousands of cars will be recalled. But recalled to do what exactly? Just reprogramming the ...

Re: Epic fail MRW and SEUR

I have used Amazon 'Premium' for a couple of years now and, very often, get Monday delivery for items ordered Saturday or Sunday! Great service and value. It's usually SEUR that Amazon use to our area but sometimes it's MRW.

Re: International Driving Permit

An old thread I know but I will need an international driving permit early next year. I followed the links here but but they now just revert to the home page. I have searched the DGT site but haven't found the right page. Has the system changed now?

Re: Epic fail MRW and SEUR

I must put in a word in support of Seur. It obviously depends very much on location. I get an email the evening before to expect a delivery; then, by 9.30 am on the day, another advising the time of delivery window (1 hour) which is almost always accurate. I needed to courier a package to UK recentl...
