Why are roaming charges coming back, and why are they so expensive?

(Image credit: Shutterstock / Kaspars Grinvalds) These new roaming charges are a far cry from the inordinate amounts that the networks used to charge. The government has also put rules in place, including capping roaming costs at £45 per month.  In addition, networks have to ask you to opt-in to spend any more – and they’re obliged to alert you when you’re at 80% data usage and again at 100%, so you won’t just run out unexpectedly. Frequent travellers can also opt for special packages. A spokesperson for Vodafone said, “Inclusive roaming will still be a part of selected plans. For roaming in Europe, customers can choose a plan that… Read More

Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 specs, features and when it could launch worldwide

(Image credit: Redmi Note 11) After being launched in China in October 2021 and India in November that year (as the Note 11T), we’re hoping the Redmi Note 11 family launches in the rest of the world at some point in 2022, but there’s no confirmation of this just yet.

We wouldn’t expect the Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus to launch globally though – this kind of top-top phone doesn’t always see the light of day in other regions. The India launch didn’t… Read More

Huge asteroid the size of Empire State Building to fly past Earth: Here’s how you can track it

A huge asteroid nearly twice the size of the Empire State Building in New York will pass the Earth at a staggering 19.5 km per second (43,754 miles an hour) next week and amateur astronomers could catch a glimpse of it. The asteroid — 7482 (1994 PC1) — will fly past within 1.2 million miles of Earth, NASA said. This is the closest the asteroid, estimated to be 1.052 km in diameter, has been to Earth since 1933 when it was just 699,000 miles away. HOW TO CATCH ASTEROID FLY-BY While the asteroid is unlikely to be visible with the naked eye, astronomers might be able to catch a glimpse… Read More

OnePlus 9RT vs iQoo 9 – which could be a better buy?

(Image credit: Future / Jitendra Soni) The OnePlus 9RT gets a 6.62-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate while the screen size of the iQoo 9 is slightly smaller at 6.5-inches.
