    I had occasion to check mail whilst on route through France last Month I know I shouldn't but had no choice, just got the bill, worked out at £2.56 per megabyte. :Eeek: The phone companies are making hay whilst the sun shines, let's hope the regulators can stop this daylight robbery soon.:Angry:

    Worked out at £3 per Meg in Spain last year. Worse still, I'd forgotten to turn off Windows auto-updating and before I realised what was happening I'd run up a bill of nearly £50 :Doh:

    Idiocy can be expensive :Blush:

    :Cool: Chcken feed. When touring and using PAYG Mobile to Laptop for accessing emails. It used to cost £2 just to get a couple of emails and send a couple. :Eeek:

    Still. I suppose a carrier Pidgeon would have had a problem finding us. :Rofl1:

    NOOOOO!!!!!

    Free wifi sounds great, but the kids clamouring for a 'McDonalds' will mean that the saving on mobile internet costs will be more than wiped out by the resulting meal bill! :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Dropping prices, in this day and age, I can only hope so.

    McD's sounds like a plan, with regards to the kids clamouring for a burger and chips, I thought thats what belly lockers were for.:Rofl1:
