Does the UK need full-fibre broadband? Just ask the lucky few who have it
Only 1 in a dozen homes can get ‘the gold standard of broadband’ but those that do see it as a necessityLabour’s plan to offer free full fibre broadband to every home and business is an eye-catching offer to potential voters. But while the scheme has been labelled “fantasy economics” by critics, people who already enjoy ultra-fast broadband view it as invaluable.Like the roll-out of 5G for mobile phones, full-fibre broadband is the much-hyped next big thing for internet connectivity to homes and businesses. Full-fibre will mean speeds of more than one gigabit per second, letting users download an HD movie in under 50 seconds. Continue reading...

How to remove makeup properly
It’s time to ditch the remover wipes and switch to gentler, kinder techniques for taking off mascara and cleaning your poresMakeup remover wipes are not only bad for the environment – they can also damage your skin.

Instead of wipes, saturate three cotton discs with a cleanser specifically designed for the eye area, cutting one pad in half to place under each eye. Don’t try to rub off your mascara straight away. Instead, hold the cotton pads on each eye for 60 seconds to allow the makeup to break down before gently wiping it off. Continue reading...
