I don't have TV and use mobile 4G internet (so I'm outside the reach of Murdoch!)

I do pay the TV-tax so that I can legally use the BBC iPlayer. Also, a lot of TV channels are available online (like German, Swedish and American ones) if I find I watch to watch German, Swedish or Danish coverage of the Olympics.

Total cost of about £30/month including home phone!

Shortest route is seven miles each way. I do a multi-mode commute; bike to the train station, and then from the train station to work.

I live in Livermore CA, and work in Newark CA.
