If you have the Map Update Service subscription, a newer one -- if available -- should always show when you log in as long as you do within the term of the subscription.

Thanks David, I have free lifetime maps so I should be OK.

Which brings us back to someone like Plusnet. Wink


or JohnLewis Broadband... which uses Plusnet servers dedicated to JohnLewis Customers, with JohnLewis Quality of service... was on a capped service now on unlimited...

just threaten to leave your ISP unless they put you on unlimited service... as long as you are outside your first contract time there is nothing they can do to make you stay...

I noticed that the last map update downloaded much quicker and I have gone nowhere near my limit. So maybe the problem was with TomTom. I have a pretty good deal with Madasafish, 6.25/mnth (50% discount) for Broadband and about 18/mth for phoneline and calls. All in all with vat etc my monthly bill is less than 30. The one fly in the ointment is the low download limit.
Or am I being naive? Can anyone do better?

Fairly easily.

Plusnet Unlimited deal. 3.49 for first year, then 9.99. Line rental 15.95, Anytime calls 5.00.

Comes to 24.44 for first year, then 30.94. There are further deals on cashback sites - Plusnet 35 cashback on Quidco.
