I'm not sure I want the Chinese government to know what I eat for breakfast, either

Will take a look though, thank you!

Apologies if this has been covered before, but what are people's preferences for VPN apps for phones/tablets?

NordVPN are almost universally regarded as being the safest pair of hands and best all round service. They're not the cheapest but the longer subscription you can afford, the more modest the price.

You can also get some deceptively cheap 'lifetime' VPNs that might work sporadically but there's always a question mark about what they do with your data and how long the company will be solvent etc.

Just made a bump from 2Gb/5000m/Unlim at £9 to 50Gb/5000m/Unlim at twenty. I might need to use a lot of 4g....
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Depending on what you want, you might need to enquire if the 4g will be bumped up to include 5g in a year or twos time when it is fully rolled out.

It's a year lock so that's fine.

Besides, consider how much of the delay in clicking around is due to latency and server response/handshaking times, and maybe bumps on speed don't always translate to massive improvements in experience.

Streaming 4k or 8k video fine, but reading your Facebook?
