Ooop's that's Joke52 of to the kiosk for another fiver on his Marxist dongle .........





You are wrong about that too
I have BT home broadband which gives me internet throughout UK (and Europe) at no extra charge.
The millions of BT home & business routers around the UK work as wi-fi hotspots.


So you've been sponging of other folks tinternet? ........

How very Scottish .......


It works both ways
I always leave my router on so visitors to Pissindoon can use my internet

Pelmet doesn't understand the concept of wi-fi.....he's still on dial up.


Nope..........I've been on a dongle for years .........

Unlike your apparently wealthy BumChum Joke52 I don't need to sponge of other folks connection .......

Neither do I need to sh1t in binbags .......

BT Wifi formally known as BT FON is excellent. Millions of hot spots all over the UK and partnered with FON in Europe and SFR in France as well as one or two others. I use it in the van all the time. Just lob the iBoost antenna out the window roughly in the direction of some houses up to a mile away and you generally pick one up. Free wifi but only if you are a BT Broadband customer.

Actually Dave the images are just tedious and spoiling the forum. Nobody is on a limited connection and besides you cant post an image bigger than 100kb anyway on here which is so minuscule even on a limited data connection it will make no difference. The actual page users are loading each time will be way more than that.

By the way my BT unlimited Broad band that allows me to access millions of hot spots is less that £15 a month. I think its about £11 or something ridiculously cheap.

As you probably know, like many companies, BT try to increase your charges at the end of your contract when it automatically renews.
But to avoid the rigmarole of negotiating a discount every time you can go online and renew at your current discount.
you can also get a discount on line rental by paying 12 months separately upfront.
(unless its changed recently)

Only thy individually consent to have their routers used in that way and you would need to get close enough to their router to get a usable signal.

I imagine if your old van turned up parking that close to someone's house they'd be on the phone to the rozzers before you even had time to deposit one of your infamous plastic bags in their bin.

Well I have many years practical experience of actually doing it, but I'm sure you know better
I find useable BT wifi in about 90% of the places I stop in uk
But its not where we might expect - I seldom get anything in Hull where almost everyone is on Kingston Communications.
Often get nothing in city centres, probably because of conflicting signals.
And yet can stop in remote areas of the highlands and get perfect high speed broadband. Apparently coming from over a mile away - because there is nothing to interfere with the signal.
Unless its hidden in the terms and conditions somewhere we don't consent to have our routers used in this way, but apparently we can opt out. But there is no advantage in doing so, only the disadvantage of not being able to use anyone else's router if you won't let them use yours. The router owner has priority, and the roamers have the slack they are not using. So I have found broadband speed suddenly drop sharply, and rise again just as quickly, according to the home owner's usage.
Being inside a steel van with no windows, I have to have an external wifi antenna. But perhaps in a coachbuilt van you might not need it.

Not true. The BT wifi service is automatically enabled on every BT Broadband router. You have to specifically opt out if you do not want to be part of the scheme. Thats why there are millions of them. It was the same with SFR Fon in France which is partnered with BT Wifi. When it was an opt in service you were lucky to find an SFR Fon hot spot then SFR decided to make it an opt out service and pretty much overnight France lit up with hot spots. Ive been using it for donkeys years. We use an iBoost wifi antenna so no need to be right on top of the house the signal is coming from. Ive successfully connect from literally miles away in the past. Ideally you want to be within half a mile or closer for a really good signal but with modern laptops these days and the newer BT Smart hubs I can often connect without the antenna up to a couple of hundred yards from the source.

However with data on mobiles and for mifi units becoming much cheaper for larger data packages its less crucial to find wifi hotspots though and ultimately I think connecting to wifi will become a thing of the past.

Although you are right about one thing. It has happened where the local Victor Meldrew neighbourhood watch guy has been on the phone to the rozzers about my van parked it the street.
They come out thinking I was out on a burglary
But have always been fine as soon as I open the door and see its a motorhome.
I play them at their own game - I'm just obeying the law officer - car parks state park within a marked bay, no sleeping in vehicles etc etc.
One copper told me flat out 'I couldn't care less where you park - parking enforcement is the council's job and they are not working tonight'
So I moved to the car park, but didn't sleep as well as on the street because of the wind coming straight off the sea buffeting the van about.

His days of El Cheapo dongling are over anyway since he voted to end his own FoM. No more pretending to be a "resident" for six months in an EU country.


No more free roaming tariffs I would imagine also.


If they do then I'll get a cheap PAYG local sim card ........

Depends which country you are in, what kit you have and how much of a techno numpty you are. I paid for most of my trips (some of which were six months long) by doing odd bits of remote work. I always found wifi. Best one ever was doing some remote support with my feet in Lake Maggiore sat with a cocktail. Couple of hours work, send an invoice, job done.

Of course it became a whole lot easier once the roaming charges went thanks to the EU. If I couldnt get wifi I simply turned on my hot spot on my phone and cracked on using my UK data allowance. That really was an improvement as I am with Vodafone and it just finds the provider with the best signal and pretty much works all over Europe. No need to fanny on buying local sims or worrying about finding a wifi signal in the middle of nowhere. Not only that, I didnt need to worry about racking up loads of bills for calls (received and made) For anyone that tours around long term, losing the roaming charges was a massive help.
