Re: bigblu - formerly Europasat, formerly Tooway

Yes ,but do they own any satellites .. as Warwick says they are buying or renting bandwidth from the owners of the satellites ? This from Wikipedia: "BBB purchases broadband capacity from a variety of satellite companies, sells or rents to the end user the necessary hardware to access the inte...

As a matter of interest, are you able to access your data usage from the bigblu customer portal?

Re: bigblu - formerly Europasat, formerly Tooway

The ever-helpful Hitek Sound & Vision have provided me with a link to a Skylogic branded site where I am able to see my current data usage, bigblu still resolutely ignore all requests for help.

Re: bigblu - formerly Europasat, formerly Tooway

Thanks for that Jeff. The supply chain for Tooway satellite service is hard to follow, my kit is branded Tooway, I bought it from Hitek Sound and Vision who are located near Chania and according to their website are the "official agents in Greece for the supply and installation of the high spee...

bigblu - formerly Europasat, formerly Tooway

I recommend that anyone considering installing a bigblu satellite internet system take a look at the bigblu facebook page before investing.

Re: Small World

The China news source is a little out of date, caption say the photo was shot in March 2015 - or maybe it's prophetic.

Re: Sending a package to the UK

Jeff, Its worth being aware that Nomad carriage costs are based on volume rather than weight - should make their price for shipping heavy items like olive oil very competitive. I always use Nomad for shipping my olive oil to UK - helps that my UK home is a 30-min drive from their Peterborough base. ...

Re: Olive Fly (Dacus Oleae)

I'm ashamed to admit that through a combination of ignorance and complacency I have not previously taken any action to control olive fly in my olive grove. I tend to be guided by my neighbours who, as fly infestation has not been a major problem in this area recently, don't put out fly traps. Last y...
