I know EXACTLY where you're coming from.
I live in 'London', but in fact in the country, right on the very edge of Greater-London.
I REFUSE TO PAY BRITISH TELECOM FOR A CRAPPY PHONE LINE & INTERNET !!
( read:- British TeleCON !! )
They are happy to lavish MILLIONS £££ on glitzy T.V. commercials featuring Hollywood movie stars...
...but can't seem to be able to put up a few new wires !
They promise the Earth & deliver NOTHING !
Check for speeds in your area, they say, YEAH RIGHT !!
I have as a result used a cellular system for Internet, for some years now.
Back in 2008, it was a tad expensive, but still WAY CHEAPER than a British TeleCON line-rental & Internet deal.
NOW it is in fact 'cheap as chips'.
Not good for Playstations(TM) or Netfix(TM), But I don't have time for that jazz anyhow, Too many cool models to make !!
Peter, in all seriousness, I have here TWO unused cellular-internet devices, which are compatible with Orange/T-Mobile, who are now called EE.
You've probably seen them, size of a cigarette-lighter, no battery, just plugs into the USB socket on your computer, software is in the device already.
If you can get an ( Orange/T-Mobile ) EE cellphone signal where you are, the device will work pretty well.
I would be more than happy to send one to you by Royal Mail for you to check out !!
It's so small it would go in an envelope for £1 First-Class post, I'll even pay the £1 !! since seeing Two Sister's Farm is worth a hell of a lot more than some stoopid movie !!
With a 'SIM-Card only deal' (you supply the device), from the local EE-shop, you should be able to buy enough data to use Freerails & other things quite a bit, for just £1, and top-up online easily when needed.
If you don't need the Internet much, you don't pay for it, simple as that !!
For Googleing, Freerails & hobby use alone, who actualy needs zillions of gigabytes per month anyway ?
Worked fine for me for years.
Peter YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO LEAVE FREERAILS !!
Especially due to the crappy service & overcharging of British TeleCON !
Send me a PM with your address.
The device is in the Royal Mail to you pronto.
If you don't have it, it's going to landfill, I don't need THREE of the damn things !!
Check out the cost of the SIM-Only situation with EE, their 'minimum amount situation' I think you will find is very good for 'light users'.
I just put the USB-cellphone device in an envelope & stuck a stamp on !!
Am waiting for it's new owners address !!
