I was out last night and had turned off my vpn to do something. Forgot about it and was then reading the news and noticed yerjnisdyre.cloudfront.net loading and showing me an advert to Lycamobile before the pages load.
Is that new? That would do my head in, I never noticed it before as I use a VPN, but I also have adaway installed which obviously hasn't blocked that yet. I didn't make a rule as when vpn is on it's gone again.

Ha, and I was the first answer...

I thought they were referring to banner adverts but even the other ones, Blokada would probably work anyway. Cheap or free VPN definitely should work too.

I have a sub with expressvpn so I hadn't see those type of ads, but sometimes banner ads creep in until updates.

Just wondering if the speeds for Lycamobile data are up to par?

Not a lot of top reviews of that app.

I have a terrible experience with them

Stay away.. at first, it was wonderful until I need to renew my bundle, I could do it online so I called customer service 1923, I had the port in a bundle, the team members took my money and give me another bundle, that was not the one I request to renew. then I call back.... BIG lie, port in bundle is only for one month, but term and condition writing 6 month... now cannot refund me or give me back my bundle have of course pay more....

ps: had to call 3 times to get some one I could actualy understand

Apologies in advance for a stupid question..

I've been using Lycamobile since March and I actually find it really good.
I have the Ireland plus bundle which I top up automatically with €15 each month.
So why then does my account show a balance in the region of €23?

Surely my balance should be €0 as I have paid them the exact cost of a monthly bundle.
I just don't understand why I have a balance....
is there a portion of the €15 unused??

You get to keep the €15. It's bizarre, but great! You can use the balance to top up an additional €15, the €9 bundle is grand too.

Are you sure you are purchasing the bundle each month and not just topping up?

You had me doubting myself but I just checked and it's definitely the Ireland Plus bundle - Not top ups.
