Thank you for such a clear cut and informative post. Having awoken on Sunday to no Virgin Media internet, and to be told by their Indian Call centre that I should expect it to be out until Thursday, panic ensued! Luckily we were back on line by Monday, but the thought of a recurrence and the realisation that it was possible to tether the BB Playbook tablet via the BB 9300 to Virgin Mobile, thus getting i/net from them instead, drove me to investigate the possibility. Possibility became fact in but a few minutes thanks to you, sugarbabenl. We now have a safety net for the next time our cable connection to the world wide web collapses, and all thanks to you!
