We have recently been using park4night quite a lot, for daytime parking as well as overnight spots. The map search provides a useful overview of nearby places and the details pages provide info which is generally reliable along with useful comments by motorhomers who have visited recently.

Re: Three mobile broadband

David Scholes
 

Hi Ernie

Can’t help with your London company but have you checked the 3 price list. I am buying their 40 Gb offering which normally costs £16 now (I think) but the Indian on the phone gave me an extra £2 off the price as a loyalty discount for being with 3 for a long time.
So I am only paying £14 for 40Gb sim only.

And that gets 19Gb in Europe etc which is the same as if it was all you can eat and Netflick an the like for free as well if you do that.

And now having moved house an hour east and an hour south I find that the speed is incredible. This morning, sitting drinking my coffee, I got 105 mbs. Later in the day it goes slower but still very fast. My last land line got 1 mb. Yes that is not a mistake, one meg and I quit because they had put the line rental up to £200 per year.

The speed was off my phone using its own SIM card. The mifi has to use the WiFi which slows it down to less than 80 mbs.

I think 3 are brilliant with data at the moment.

David

That no/1 blob on all mobile networks is what prompted us to change our home BroadBand to Vodaphone. With the addition of a plug-in widget the (registered) Voda mobile signal is routed via the BB = 4 blobs now without fail!

I use PAYG on Three's 123 tariff, which is 3 pence per minute on voice
calls, 2 p per text and 1 p per (I think) 1MB.  I don't text nor use
the data as the phone is linked by wi-fi to the Mi-Fi.

I've not had a land-line for many years.

Now that Three have unlimited at this low price for BB, it brings it
into the options for many still using BB at home on land-line.
Incidentally, some time ago the Which magazine did a BB test.  I was
the second fasted BB in my area.  Interestingly, the whole of my
street is connected to Virgin cable and Three was faster than all of
them except one.

The 'minefield' is a bit easier now!

Alan.

Re: Sprinter VIN plate

Thanks Derek, that's the location of the VIN stamped on the chassis - I already found that. It's the VIN Plate with all the weight information on that I can't find. 

So no prize unfortunately, sorry! Anyway I haven't been offered any show tickets recently.

Hi Andy

Could there be a free set of show tickets here?😀😀😀

And the answer is......Under the driver’s side front wheel arch.(if it’s the same as our 2004 model).

It may be under two layers of under seal and three of of cowsh..t but scrape away and you’ll find it. I found ours once for an MOT tester but never saw it again in the next seven years- they just took my word for it.

 Now, where do I claim my prize?
