Topic # 114356 17-Feb-2013 09:40

Hi guys,

This was an issue a while back, with a suggestion made to XNet/WXC, and it seems there has now silently action taken on this.

I'd like to thank XNet for setting up a local Linux repo on their network - this'll *significantly* my monthly data usage, and bill (local traffic being 0-rated?)!
