I live in a village that's just been fibred up by Gigaclear. It's very tempting to just sign up for 900Mbs. But I really don't think I need that speed. There are only two of us and the only streaming services we use are Netflix etc., one thing at a time. We're currently with Zen and getting 78Mbs on an up-to-80 FTTC conection. If I stick with Zen I can upgrade to g.fast and get close to...

If we go for a Sky ISP connection, it looks as if I'll have to use the Sky Q Hub because my beloved TP Link 9980 doesn't support MER/61 authentication which Sky uses. I've seen mixed reports about port forwarding - some people saying that it doesn't work. I want to map:

Assuming that I set up my email client to use authenticated logon for SMTP (rather than anonymous) is there likely to be a problem with reading POP email from my Plusnet account and sending email (either using Plusnet's SMTP server or Sky's) with a "from" address of my Plusnet address? I know some ISPs can be very fussy about letting you access "foreign" mail servers (ie not the ones that...

I currently use Plusnet as an ISP and they have their own Usenet (News) server that clients such as Windows Live Mail and Thunderbird can access. We may be changing to Sky who do not have a news server. Are there are reputable free news servers that can be accessed from an ISP that does not have its own new server?

I've got a Plusnet Hub One router and all the PCs on my network are set to use normal DHCP to get their IP and DNS server. One PC, Windows 7 Home Premium, is connected to the router by a pair of Powerline devices (one in the router, one that the PC is plugged into) because the wifi signal is a bit weak and it's not practical to run an Ethernet cable. Everything has worked fine. I've bought...

I have a standard PN "unlimited BB" account I had one in my previous abode with no complaints but at my new flat it appears rather slow. (currently downloading a 700MB YouTube file - estimated time 10 hours, used to take 1-2 hours.) Just did a check using: https://www.broadbandspeedchecker.co.uk/

Just for fun During my sophomore year of high school, we were doing silent work and the history mentor of mine said that we might pay attention to music but if it was too noisy he would "break our headphones." so I am doing my business quietly with the music of mine on low, and this particular obnoxious child sitting next to me had the music of his really loud. I could hear it over the music of...
