    As much as i love reading the site why is the isle of man news listed? they are nothing to do with England or even part of the UK.

    also note how much it actually costs to call the island from the uk!

      Suppose any news on the new piece of wet string for Guernsey is off limits as well then!

      So don’t read it if it doesn’t interest you.

      in telecoms terms they actually are relevant. Ofcom / the UK is responsible for certain aspects, like the numbering plan (IOM/CI have area codes within +44) and radio spectrum management.

      Both places also impose the UK TV licence and receive UK TV and radio alongside their own.

      As Billy says, if something doesn’t interest you, then don’t read it. ISPreview has, since the very beginning, always covered bigger telecoms news on UK linked states, crown dependencies and so forth (e.g. Guernsey, Gibraltar, Falklands, Isle of Man etc.).

      “As Billy says, if something doesn’t interest you, then don’t read it”

      you’ve changed Mark just like the website has now its full of spammy ads (when not accessed via adblock) your attitude stinks, but i guess every bit of affiliate payment (half of the links you dont make clear, your attitude stinks this is a UK website hence the .co.uk domain i dont want news from a foreign state i want UK news. IOM isnt in UK (they have their own domain .im too) i see you have a new member of staff (Billy Shears) who seems to repeat your nonsense on a lot of posts.

      this is my last reply on this topic and your website as i feel instead of being a UK based tech/telecom type site you seem to have become a worldwide site, why would i wanna read your cut and paste articles when i could go elsewhere that doesnt premote scammy ads.

      furthermore your staff should be open that they work for you instead of hiding behind fake names etc.

    Wonder how people migt go for broadband via satellite?

    1/ How practical is to “informally share” a satellite connection among nieghbours? Does it need much more than reliable friends, some nous on connections, and readily practical lengths of ethernet cable?

    2/ The middle of the Isle of Man is genuinely mountainous, would this lead to problems keeping satelillites in view? No problems over the sea of course.
