Does the unlimited cover streaming netflix ?Yes. Very simple to setup these days. I went from 6 mbs to 40. Using smarty sim, unlimited data for £20/month (monthly rolling to check signal). SIM is in a tp-link router that takes a SIM card directly and is downstairs in the middle of the house and gets decent signal. Would definitely recommend looking in to it for your area.
Depends how good your signal is ?Anyone using mobile broadband instead of fixed line? We have a really slow broadband speed and also have a second home so we thought we could go mobile and up the speed and only need one contract, but I dont know much about the pros and cons
The mind boggles as to what is in that file. Lifetime collection of high fidelity 'art' photographs?I just might test their 'fair use' limit of 1000GB [1 terabyte] this month. I've been uploading a 500GB file non-stop for the past few days. Even with 4G it has been uploading for three days and may have a day left. Mind you, when I last uploaded a similar size file, it took over three weeks of uploading for 18 hours a day. This time uploads should be over 20 times faster.
In first world countries, like Korea, pretty sure I could upload this file in a matter of hours, not days.
You are not too far out. It seems to have finished uploading last night, but I can't see how, because there remained around 15,000 individual files averaging just under 10mb each to upload, from the folder, last time I looked yesterday. There were a few far bigger files in the folder, so the size of folder remaining could vary depending on whether the bigger individual files had uploaded or not at the time I looked.The mind boggles as to what is in that file.

A full backup takes up 1.8Terrabytes for me. I'm in the middle of a partial backup now as it happens, and have been for about 20 minutes using a 2GB WD external drive connected through USB3 [not the faster USBC/Thunderbolt] At the moment it is stuck freeing up space on the drive at 168GB of a 482GB partial backup.I duly boggled, but in all honesty, an offline backup will easily take 500gig.
It does vary a heck of a lot more than fibre. I had a similar experience where it almost died after a few days. However I got the installers to contact EE and they updated the mast and it has been fine for the past six weeks or so for the most part. Having said that, over the past two days it has slowed somewhat to an average of 16mbps both ways. That could be because I have been uploading a 500GB file to the cloud; I don't know.Hmmm, Got EE4g broadband week and a half ago, great 65 mb for a few days, last couple of days down to 1mb to 4 mb , dont know what is going on.
Update about an hour and a quarter later and it has backed up a bit more than 200GB in that time.Update about an hour later and for the first time ever the Time Machine backup has failed due to a lack of space, so it is now backing up to the new 4TB external drive.It is going at quite a reasonable speed of 1GB every 1.5 minutes. It only has another 900GB to go. Speed is not that important for backups. It can take as long as it like in the background and will not effect the desktop performance at all [mine has 64GB RAM installed and an 8 core processor]
When we were on EE 4G there were occasional days when it slowed right down. usually coincided with some work happening at the mast.
If it doesn`t improve trying ringing EE
Are you checking your speed on Wifi or wired connection.Hmmm, Got EE4g broadband week and a half ago, great 65 mb for a few days, last couple of days down to 1mb to 4 mb , dont know what is going on.
