TV via 3/4G
 
Hello.
Just out of interest and for use while away in the event of straying further afield from the Sky footprint.
My nephew says he uses a MiFi unit with a local SIM and couples this with a IPTV box in Spain and gets loadsa channels.

But looking at 3/4G MiFi boxes they vary from 20 to 80+. Is it worth paying any more than 20.?
Same with the myriad of IPTV boxes from just a few pounds to hundreds.

I always thought TV used a huge amount of data - no?

I guess it does Jean. But nephew pays €19.99 for unlimited data SIM and my 'Prixtel' French mobile SIM has a €19.99 max cap.

Ray, can't comment on the IPTV box, never had one but you'll find the cheaper MIFI's won't do 4G, some of the older ones won't even handle 3G.
As yet not used it for TV only normal internet.

Thanks John. I do see many are sold as 4G units.

Ray, just had a look at the prixtel package you mentioned, have you noticed there is a 5Gb cap when using data outside of France?

Not sure where you saw that John.
Yes the 5GB keeps you under the €9.99 limit a month but if you exceed that up to 50GB it's capped at €19.99 as I see it.
I didn't notice any difference in or out of France but might have missed that?

Ray, I'm not a user of screenshots but have downloaded the postimage programme and I thought followed the instructions but don't seem at be able to get the picture to show.
When I use the insert image it shows the address on postimage, picture should be below.

If I get to manage a picture you'll see where my comment came from.
