AT&T’s new ‘unlimited’ plan sucks

As of this morning, all four major wireless carriers offer data plans described as “unlimited” to all their customers.

Living on the outskirts has many advantages, but internet service often is not one of them. Seville is one of several rural areas in Florida whose residents have a tough time getting online.

Lacklustre Dulwich Hamlet scrape a 1-1 draw against the evil …

It was a disappointing night at Champion Hill as an underwhelming Dulwich Hamlet failed to bag all three play-off-boosting points against relegation-threatened arch-rivals Leatherhead. Geographically-speaking, Leatherhead aren’t obvious candidates to become rivals of Dulwich, but many fans will never forget or forgive the Surrey club’s supremely dodgy antics over WallGate.
