    At last! The CC has changed it's policy on Internet and rather than faff about with a day here and there you can now get unlimited access all year for a one off payment of £25!Brilliant for anyone spending long periods on CC sites.

    Well done CC:thumb:

    If I lived next to or near a CC site I would pay this £25, rig up my iboost and cancel my internet contract with BT:thumb:

    £44 a year's membership and more that half that again for wifi! Good job the site fees are so low on top of that :ROFLMAO:

    By the way, do those sites that have TV arial connections charge too?

    :winky:It makes the C & CC charges for wifi look a bit extortionate now. But so are their new " improved" site charges!

    Not anywhere we've been in Spain and if you go to a hotel in the UK you pay an extortionate price for a room anyway!:Smile:

    We gave them up this year.

    Their wardens are such an unhappy and unhelpful bunch.

    ....and then watch the hour glass on your screen spinning round and round, as the connection will be so slow, with everyone trying to log on and watch Corrie, download this and that, and Skype through the ONE site connection. £25 to watch the hour glass spinning, no thanks......:winky:


    I'll stick to "3" on my phone in the UK....:thumb:

    Agree its an improvement - all they have to do now is get the system reliable - have been on more CC sites with wifi problems than not so still some way to go.
