Re: Movistar Doubling Fibre Speeds

I think they started rolling it out last weekend as a few friends in area got the increase on Sunday. I noticed mine double on Monday evening. Got close to the promised 600 download at peak time during the evening.

Movistar Doubling Fibre Speeds

Good news is that Movistar is doubling its Fibre Optic speeds and are rolling it out this month....so if you have 300 mbps up and down at some stage in the next few weeks it should increase to 600 mbps at NO extra cost. https://comunidad.movistar.es/t5/Blog-Movisfera/Movistar-duplica-la-velocidad-de...

Try dragging the address bar to make it smaller as it may be hidden and reappear when the address is narrower......see example

Re: Its cold!

Totally agree Gerry but when I posted a few hours ago it was as quoted very grim, however within the last hour the sun has come out and the sky is blue.....Coincidence? Or as wish to believe El Cid worked some divine intervention :D

Re: Security weirdy

Agreed at these prices its a good idea to have one in reserve, as to speeds not seen any difference between the two on my speed tests, unsure as to how you'd generate a speed test on the NOWTV box unless you're talking about the nowtv app running on another device. I agree that the Beeb probably hav...

Re: Security weirdy

Yes i had a similar email a few weeks ago, and as I pointed out previously on the "SmartyDNS" thread what impressed me regarding SMARTDNSPROXY was their much larger choice of DNS servers to choose from, approx 30 against the 3 SMARTY offer. Possibly the amount of servers and locations SMAR...

Re: Security weirdy

Likewise regarding Smarty I have been using them for well over two years but seeing as they have still not solved the BBC Iplayer & related issues for well over three weeks now I lost faith and now use SmartDNS proxy which TBH are proving very reliable and the customer service is excellent. As I...

No idea what may be causing it but for reference I have Smart DNS on my router and haven't experienced your problem on accessing Amazon UK on Chrome, Firefox, Opera or Safari

Re: European portable digital content.

Nope there is not.....but do you have your SMART DNS Region Set to where Your Amazon Account is registered?? Its located in "my account" under Region settings....in other words if your Amazon account is .co.uk then set Amazon Prime region to U.K but remember to restart your device inc router

Re: Smarty DNS

You can use as Gerry says Smarty's VPN but obviously not on the NOWTV Box, also the VPN service does slow down your speeds massively so if your not on a decent speed using the VPN can be a bit hit n miss also in my experience sometimes the VPN would disconnect and sometimes if the U.K servers were b...

Re: Setting up Smarty VPN

I’ve just set Up the Smarty Dns app on my Fire TV. Iplayer and all other tv apps working this way. This must be just about the easiest way to set up UK TV on a big screen. No need to play with the router. Totally agree, works a treat and very user friendly, got it on Fire tv and on Firestick (warni...

Re: Smarty DNS

No I didn't lose internet it simply lost connection to the Smarty London servers and hence the ability to watch iplayer etc. It reverted to my usual IP. The Manassas, Montreal, Gdansk servers were fine but obviously not for Nowtv Firestick etc. Probably the London server gets overloaded when they ha...

The Rosada with Clams (half of which empty) in a pinkish cream sauce....the best bit about the dish was the scalloped potatoes around the side. I've had Rosada many many times over the years in Andalusia and yes I'm well the fish is not native to the Med and is usually bought in frozen. but what i m...

Re: 2 New Italian Restaurants

Went to La Bella Torino last Saturday eve, very average, 6 out 10 at best, my fish was definitely not fresh and the lasagne was very "ready meal for one" in appearance. To top it off they had run out of ice cream. Maybe an off night but won't be rushing back.

Re: Smarty DNS

The SmartyVPN can also be temperamental and has twice today disconnected itself from the London servers once for an hour and just now for 30 minutes
