Tech podcast: phone slamming and data roamingOfcom clampdown, phone charges cut and in-car DAB
28 March 2010
Phone mis-selling, data roaming charges and free music streaming are in the spotlight in this week's Which? tech podcast, as Matthew Bath and Melanie Dowding take a look at Ofcom's slamming clampdown, mobile data price caps, and online streaming music services such as Spotify.
Which? telecoms expert Ceri Stanaway joins them in the podcast studio to discuss Ofcom's new clampdown on home phone mis-selling and slamming.
They also take a look at new data charge caps for mobile roaming, that should put an end to returning home to find a massive bill for surfing the web or checking your email while abroad.
And Which? digital music expert Al Warman gives a run-down of some of the best ways to stream your favourite music online. We7, Last.fm and Spotify all have free versions, but what are the pros and cons of each service? And how many ads will you have to listen to in between the music?
Finally there's an update on the future of in-car digital radio, and how to listen to DAB on the move once analogue radio signals have been switched off.
It's all in this week's Which? tech podcast. Hit the play button to listen, or use the arrows to scroll through the podcast archive with every edition from the past year.
