Jaxar: If you find a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow what do you find at the end of the internet?

A pot of Bitcoins





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

haha I must have read your post earlier and forgot it consciously only to come up with the same thing. I divorce myself of all responsibility and blame by subconscious!





Please note: I have a professional bias towards Vodafone.

Yabanize: Isnt the new vodafone ad that says "with the new red plus plan you will have so much data you could reach the end of the internet"

Isnt that a bit misleading since it is a limited amount of data, and it doesnt say anything like

You won't actually be able to reach the end of the internet


Presumably that would depend upon whereabouts you are in relation to the end when you set out to reach it....

I've no real idea to be honest.

Like most non-geek geeks 'darter' as you all call it is hard to quantify. I have unlimited darter at home, so that never becomes an issue. My phone now has 5Gb of darter and I suspect that will be plenty 95% of the time too.

kiwikiwi: And especially since it's 4G I could eat that in literally hours providing speeds and conditions are good.
I think the vodafone ad is a bit silly but there have been worse marketing.


Well seeing as real world testing seems to put Vodafone's 4G at 29Mbps that 5GB could be blown in as little as 25 min.   25 min of full speed internet doesn't sound as good as 'the end of the internet' really.




Warning: reality may differ from above post
