    International SIM Card Operators

    How about buying a number on Skype and using wifi wherever you go to? https://secure.skype.com/my/skype-number?setlang=en

    Is that a camera?

    Ah. Thanks. Missed that.

    Is that a camera?

    Driving out of Ballasalla today heading north I noticed a new extension to the pole supporting the national speed limit sign on the eastern side of the road. On top of this pole there appears to be a camera. It might not be a camera , but it looked like one (pointing back down the hill). What's that for? Anyone know?

    Daphne should take a look at some of the garbage that's sold in the schools' canteens around the island.

    4G Broadband

    When you talk about an antenna, do you mean one like this? https://www.broadbandbuyer.com/products/15383-solwise-4g-xpol-a0001/reviews/#content

    4G Broadband

    Hmmm... we have lots of Xmas lights! And I moved the Alexa recently - much closer. I'll move a few things around. Thanks for info.

    4G Broadband

    I wish I hadn't bothered with 4G now - getting pap download speeds all of a sudden (I'm guessing this is related to the approaching Christmas hols and lots of devices being used elsewhere). Now getting about 4-5 mbps. Anyone else on 4G broadband having the same issues?

    4G Broadband

    Yes. The box they give you is much the same as any other broadband box - several LAN connections in the back. I've got it connected to to one of those extender things through the power lines that I was using with the old broadband. Worked no problem.

    4G Broadband

    After sitting around in their awful showroom for too long, we finally got our hands on a shiny new 4G broadband box. Simple to set up and it works fantastically well with movies, iplayer etc. Thanks for the advice.

    Thanks both. Bear - have you used it for watching TV online - iPlayer for example?

    Cruise Ship in Bay

    Great post. Made me laugh. I did speak to one of them - an Australian. Sounded like a fantastic cruise.
