Want the fastest download speeds? Head to Stoke, duck.

I work in Stoke. It gets a bad reputation but there’s some very friendly people there and they do oatcakes. Lovely oatcakes. There’s even a oatcake boat on the canal which sells them. Stick some bacon and eggs in one of those, wrap it up – boom! Anyhow, …

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S+ … Everything you need to know

In London it was cold. In New York it was cold too. However, despite our efforts Samsung wouldn’t let us attend the launch events. We have instead seen the very strange “live in London” TV advert featuring some extremely eager people watching the “unboxing”. So, what’s the big …

EE look to the skies for emergency coverage

Telecoms in the modern world – as seen from 1969
