  1. GoT looking very WoW (Spoilers!!!!!)

    It's actually episode 6. Episode 7 is the final one of the series next week.Sorry to be pedantic.
  2. Charlottesville

    JIm Jefferies sums it up nicely
  3. Premiership 2017/18

    Arsenal
  4. Game of Thrones

    With that Ed appearance and the reference of the 'top knot' by the Hound, Season 7 has got off to a pretty shitty start. Hopefully it will get better.
  5. John Bishop

    Strange casting that I have to say. Shame he was cast in that role because it lets down what is a very good gripping drama series.
  6. Samphire Closed?

    Real shame, as the food was exceptional along with the service.
  7. https://web.sure.com/isleofman/home-phone/sure-home-phone-charges £13.50 is their landline rental currently. I'm not sure if this will be changing on the 1st May as well though. MT Landline equivalent is £14.45 for choice rental which will rise to £17.45 on the 1st May according to their press release. I completely agree that it's daft when you only want to use your line for broadband, there should be a naked DSL product on the Island thus eliminating the need for line rental if you are just using the line for data.
  8. It will be interesting to see if the wholesale landline rates are going up as well, or if this is just a retail commercial decision by MT.
  9. So essentially MT are putting their fixed line rental up by £3.00 per month and also their broadband services by £0.50 per month. However they will provide a discount to customers who take landline, broadband and contract mobile with them of £4.50 thus saving a £1.00 per month for being a 'loyal' customer. So basically you get penalised for freedom of choice.
  10. Freeview TV (Dumping Sky)

    Thats where Now TV is a good option. It uses your broadband connection, you can pay for the entertainments package at £9.99 a month and you get all the major sky channels along with all the catch up for BBC,ITV,C4 and C5. I use a combination of Now TV and Free Sat for recording. The only thing Now TV doesn't do is record.
  11. I did some tests the other night and was able to view 4k content via youtube to my 40" Sony 4k TV without any buffering on my Wi-Manx connection. This is standard VDSL so 40/2 Happy to try the video you linked above tonight.
  12. Let me test some 4k content tonight from home. I usually stream in 1080 on Youtube. I am on standard VDSL but am getting 40/2 now MT have installed a cab near me. I agree it is strange that when you connect via VPN you are having no issues. I will feed back tomorrow.
  13. Any traffic shaping done by MT will not effect Wi-Manx as that is down to the ISP. I havent noticed any buffering on my Wi-Manx connection to Youtube.
  14. Andy Murray!

    Well it's either Murray or an Olympian. Jason Kenny, Laura Trott or Alistair Brownlee Murray is odds on mind you.
  15. Andy Murray!

    His return of service has never been in question. That is his biggest strength for sure. He just knows where to return the ball to put him on the front foot, even against the bigger servers. SPOTY for a record 3rd time ?
