TalkTalk's £1.5bn 3-million home fibre broadband hopes on ice for now

Zmodem

Re: Broadband in the country is crap.

get talktalk good broadband, new network settings, i get a contant 10Mb/s which seen throttled by the free router

these setting fix everything for the current version of windows 10 until you get a big update and have to either set them again or find new settings https://i.postimg.cc/k50JD3NJ/KILLER-ETHERNET-SETTINGS.png with the MTU on PPoE, which is just a checkbox on the main tab

talktalk benefit from being able to give you a landline while still owing BT money after being cut off for 10 years because you did'nt bother paying the bill, which is half of the country

all the tears and all the hate of bad connections is all fixed by new network windows settings

Re: GAH!!

so can firewalls, more so the built in rubbish that is the windows firewall, that does'nt really do anything and but all background services use all your bandwidth

turn off your router and install all the system app's with the firewall disabled, things are always alot faster, especially windows update installs

UK.gov asks biz for ideas on how to 'overcome' data privacy concerns in NHS

Zmodem

most of them are russian and polish and don't have a braincell in their heads, if anyone actually wanted to be all MI5, information is easy to get hold of, all you need is a basic DBS check to work in a surgery or hospital

Zmodem

use finger print scanners for a start, to access computers, the receptionists and nurses are always leaving their cards in, in the surgery i have to clean

while they are being implimented, add a security key to them for secondary file access so you can open PDF's like PGP keys, which never leave the network

and use magnetic locks on file cabinets with classified information, they are never locked, and virgin healthcare files are always hanging around on the floor even if they has classified written on

UK comms watchdog Ofcom pokes probe into Vodafone and EE over network coverage numbers

i have'nt had a landline in my premises, for 14 years, as there has been no need, 3G is faster and has ran at a constant 10Mbps most 10 years

its the power of the monopoly still existing, you can claim bankruptcy, and still get a bank account and 10 credit cards, because you have no legal binds with another company, which should be the same for a reseller "telecom"

they should probe BT, i ordered some rubbish talktalk fast broadband package, and straight away, they had a problem, which i guess is todo with the £500 i have owed BT for the past 14 years which they are never getting

US and UK Amazon workers get a wage hike – maybe they'll go to the movies, by themselves

Zmodem

that all does'nt matter, when wages go up, national insurance goes up to match your extra earnings, even when they are already taking £400 a month, earn £1800 a month working in a warehouse without a forklift licence, and you end up with £1350 in the bank every month

Turns out download speed isn't everything when streaming video on your smartphone

Zmodem

you can watch 1080p for hours on three 3G, it normally runs at 10Mbps and can handle the bitrate of the video and audio, most networks are to dumb to understand especially if it has anything todo with BT, and throttle your connection to 0.5Mbps

Flying to Mars will be so rad, dude: Year-long trip may dump 60% lifetime dose of radiation on you

Re: What happened to...

use silica as a bond https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.1080/18811248.1975.9733086 for graphite and be tougher then diamond, and get to mars in 2 days, and you won't need to exercise

there is an infinate amount of research on silicone types and radiation types, most of it absorbs gamma radiation

Vodafone's spending pays off - but EE hangs on to UK network crown

Zmodem

BT decided to take away t-mobile unlimited internet and replace it with 500MB maximum for the same £12 a month without telling anyone, and just banning you for going over 500MB for breaching the fair use policy, so I switch to 3 which is alot faster on 3G

the average is 6Mbps, but can get up to 10Mbps easily when downloading off of steam and can maintain a steady 2.2MB/s download speed for a good hour

3G http://www.speedtest.net/result/7561831918

4G is half the speed like always

3 just needs to include steam downloading from midnight til 8 am if you buy a data passport, for desktop tethering/hot spots, for the 60% of the uk home broadband users which is'nt landline based

£18 a month on 12 month sim only contract, you get 30GB hotspot, all you can eat netflix, minutes texts, and £5 a day data passports where data policy does'nt apply from the time of purchase until midnight

3 needs to add password number identification to remove the adult filter on the internet like giff gaff does, being able to use data in 71 countries and has all the easy jet addons, credit cards are for poor people

EE suck, they are pathetic like BT and not worth caring about, BT entire history is turning every business deal into a joke and walking around leaving the company bankrupt

Your F-35s need spare bits? Computer says we'll have you sorted in... a couple of years

its a classified top secret secret which is let out in aload of 1990s UFO documentaries that are made in britian with people from the MoD and military knowing exactly how the TR-3B works and everyone saying its american

if america had true anti gravity and pulse propulsion and a dark space program and everyone likes to dream of, a railgun would have been easy

its like railguns, america could'nt work out how to make so BAE Systems knocked one up

Zmodem

the f35 is rubbish, BAE Systems exists so britain can be independant, because america stole the TR-3B research during the lockheed martin merger and it was all tits and tantrums so the MoD setup BAE Systems for classified research,

britian has "100" typhoons before the MoD stopped saying how many they really have, and does'nt care for stealth and only needs the f35b to replace the harrier for basic patrol operations, the stealth typhoon has been in the making for years with the taranis stealth drone being the stepping stone

Zmodem

if you watch some documentaries, other countries being able to upgrade it without the need for BAE System's is part of the design, and the eurofighter just uses standard universal molex ribbons for most of it

plug and play on a eurofighter

0
Zmodem

everything is expected to last 30 years before new is brought again

if you want an upgradable plane, you buy the eurofighter and easily fit it out with all your custom classified hardware and turn it into the RAF typhoon which can take down a lockheed raptor in a dog fight

the only thing that is the same on the eurofighter and the RAF typhoon, are the physic's of the flyby wire system and the design

you don't need to build one, a metal part would probably needs replacing once a year, which you can just make in 2 hours on a 3d printer

better if the planes are going to be in a classified location on a air craft carrier

just laser scan them all, and buy a metal 3d printer, BAE probably has some star trek classified metals to use

EmDrive? More like BS drive: Physics-defying space engine flunks out

Zmodem

Re: I want to believe.

why, its rubbish, for the amount of power and size of them and the tiny bit of thrust they give, its better to just have a full electro magnet and a transformer giving you 10,000x more thrust with the same power, and weighing less, and only 8 inches square

Re: The "impossible" drive clearly works. Now they need to hide it...

i dont care for america or governments so i spam the world with mine and anyone can make one, you will just need a marine fishing boat generator for the upto 8000kW and a 1000 KM range, for space planes for uk's space plane ports in 10 years

the world is so spammed with the basic's nobody can put a patent on it

Re: So tempting

all solved if you use mine, it only needs electric to power the magnets, and will work anywhere in the universe as long as the repelling force has more gauss then the gravity your craft is in, and the force travel's with you as you use the repelling magnetic force from a ring

if you have the power source to replace a jet engine, you can easily fly from heathrow to the outter reaches of the solar system in 16 hours if your hull can handle 256 million MPH and being accelerated to it within 0.2 seconds

its a rubbish drive anyway and not worth a god damn thing

1.5m Brits pay too much for mobile and crappy broadband – Ofcom

Zmodem

tell that to EE and crappy tmobile who removed data pack topups without telling anyone and now its £1 day unlimited data which never works and you end up on edge, and can't download anything through your browser when tethered, can't do much, they have employed some sad old engineer from BT who is still living in the year 2000

can't make the telecom's the same, that is breaking the monopoly rules of the merger

BT to slash landline rentals by 37%... for the broadbandless

its fake, and only to get the other half of the country BT won't give a land line back to, because its the first bill you won't pay when you get sacked from your job, gets a land line

its not even half on the OFCOM stats, because the 46% is for BT and cable, everyone elses dongles and t-mobile

my EM Drive will blast a craft off at 256 million MPH in 0.5 seconds, if you base the spec's and repelling forces on BAE Systems railgun, and just multiply them by 1000, you have a 100 ton shuttle
