    Get a phone that has MicroSD support and buy a huge (in terms of GB) MicroSD Card?

    But I'm sure you'd have other worries (or maybe none at all) if you didn't have any access to internet permanently.

    How does that help the fact that I don't have internet fast enough to use VPN?
    I can store more, yes, but it still takes as long to fill it up.

    The latency is huge but the bandwidth is pretty impressive with a big enough set of SD cards.

    Do you really need a VPN when downloading off of Netflix etc? People have different safety levels of privacy and security but personally if it was so slow - I'd disable it. Anyways, there will probably be other things that you'd rather be doing and enjoying if you were in a place without internet access. Those are just my thoughts

    I know this is a joke RFC, but you know the black hole image? They flew half a tonne of hard drives as sending it over the internet would have congested the entire world.

    Unfortunately all technology in our house is physically safeguarded by canine triple-level security. AvCar data packages would be manducated at point of receipt.

    I don't think it matters whether or not I use VPN, really. Internet is so slow here that it takes an age, regardless of what you're doing!

    Same thing, though to save money I'd probably also start using the free wifi at local libraries.

    Re: Disney+ streaming service: price and rollout plans revealed

    taskmaster Your dreams are answered .. You will soon be mandated to have internet of 10down/1up . Nobodys mentioned that of course its nice and cheap @£6.99 .. but wait and see in 5 years it'll be £12.99 or greater , many tiers also? I think SKY wont last much longer as a seperate streaming service. harr, drag on the old flaming beard, parrot and WOODEN STUMP .

    Unless they're paying me $6.99/m, hard pass.

    That's what they said when they installed 1Gb fibre cable down the road and a connection pot right outside my house 18 months ago... I'm still waiting for it.
