Surely there are unlimited data sims (O2) for lower than £35/month?!

Didn't think this was worthy of its own thread so have put it in here.

Is it possible to boost/extend the Bluetooth range of a laptop? I have a wireless headset that I use with it and it would be handy if it didn't lose connection as I wandered around the house. Not sure if it would work in the same way as wifi boosters where you have additional points around the house to extend the signal?

Yes you can get Bluetooth range extenders. Never tried them myself, but plenty on Amazon so it’ll be worth having a look and reading user reviews of them.

Bit more info here of them
