Get Spring/Summer 2011 Argos catalogue from about 20th January 2011

Argos at page 320 start of Guide to Televisions have
Digital switchover
The Digital switchover is coming to Ireland see page 373

Actually page 373 is an Advert, but page 374 has:
When is this happening
At the moment there is no confirmed date for the old analogue signal to be switched off. All we know is that it will definitely happen before the end of 2012,
so it is worth considering your options and preparing for the digital signal during 2011

I think this is a bit weaselish. But it’s clearly in the catalogue. Also EVERY TV in catalogue appears to have:
Irish digital compatible
or
Will not work with Irish Digital signals
you will require a digital set top box or
satellite source.

No confusing nonsense purely about Freeview as Tesco have!

Comreg Fine 3
Tuesday, September 28th, 2010 | Author:

MOBILE PHONE operator 3 Ireland has paid a fine of €1,500 to ComReg relating to the overstatement of its quarterly subscriber numbers since 2006.

Is it the first ever fine issued by Comreg?

Though for 3 it's small change. €1.5M might be a more reasonable fine for an International Telecom Company based in Hong Kong. Hutchison Whampoa. It's hardly Petty Cash.

How many years has 3 over stated 3G coverage or been mis-selling Mobile Internet as Broadband to home users, at a cross subsidy by voice?
