All broadband routers are limited to the same maximum output power so it's all just the emperor's new clothes.

Granted, but some are better at beam-forming to eek out the maximum possible distance, and some have significantly better antennas for the Rx side of things ;) The range on my Ubiquiti UniFi LR is much better than on the UniFi AP AC Pro, for example.. shame they lock up randomly :-X

True, but we're talking much better kit an any ISP freebie here!

They way things are going, we'll all be sitting round braziers on waste ground in a couple of years time, so meh!

If she carries on like that she will be Labour leader before she is 25.  ;D

Don't be silly! She supports terrorist... Oh, now you mention it... :-X

Sounds like a heat pump manufacturer has installed himself in a tidy lobbying position. Or it's wishful thinking "news" from the Grauniad. ::)

While we're backpedalling, sweepstake on how long before she's back here at vast expense with a new identity, in a state funded safe house with 24h security and on benefits? ;)

Lenghthy article this lunch time on the BBC about how effective we are at extracting asylum seekers from hot spots like Syria. ::)

Not to BBC: That's asylum seekers not unrepentent terrorists who have nothing to offer our society and whose plight is entirely of their own design.

When I got my homehub (5/6?) last September, I was informed it was far better than the current sky router I was using and would reach every corner of the house with ease. Fast forward five months and they are trying to get me to invest in some super duper discs that will make sure that my internet reaches every corner of the house.
Yeah, right, eff off. I got a good deal with internet and free BT sport for 18 months for 29.99 a month, after which the internet goes up to 54 and BT sport is 25 a month. Sky will no doubt want my custom back by then.  ::)

Oooh a cynic :D
Those tin foil hats aren't great for the Wi-Fi signal. ::)

I very much doubt that BT could organise getting feedback from their marketing department to someone capable of throttling your connection within a day, based on the fact that it takes them at least a week to repond to any other stimulus. ;D

Wind ? Solar ?  :-\ ;D

I can see all that tacking across the motorway and back being popular, especially with a burger-van on the back. :D

No, I meant that it would not have been so time-saving if lots of others had also had that utility.

Google maps only works because lots of other drivers along the various routes are being stalked by their phones contributing.

Not sure why he's stirred this hornet's nest, unless there was a real prospect of her turning up at the border with her passport?

Now our mechanism for quietly disowning terrorists will be tried in law. ::)

A303, M3, A272, A283, A27, A259 if you want a slightly more scenic route :y

Almost a straight line too...
Actually scratch that... Your route saves two hours and 30 miles, both of which are a surprise  :o

It goes almost past my front door, too, in which case I'll WFH, put the kettle on and cost even more time. ;)

It should be bearable off-peak. Whilst it's busy, it's now almost 100% dual carriageway. The section past Stonehenge is still single and does get congested, but provided you're not trying to negotiate it on a Friday or Sunday evening it's probably still the best bet.
