Last week, it said that the seaside town of Rhyl in North Wales had become its 200th to gain LTE services, with national population coverage now at 72 per cent.During the quarter, operating revenue decreased by 1.7 per cent to £1.49 billion, with the company noting mobile termination rate and roaming rate cuts. Excluding these, there would have been a 0.8 per cent year-on-year increase.Average revenue per user for mobile services increased 2.2 per cent after the regulatory cuts (up 5.1 per cent excluding the mandated changes). Data (non-text) revenue increased by 11 percentage points to make up 47 per cent of ARPU.With the company offering 4G tariffs based on speed, the company said that these tiered plans are “driving growth in average access fees”. More than one-in-four new customers are opting for double-speed plans, which are supported by the operator’s network in the UK’s 20 largest cities.During the quarter, EE saw postpaid mobile net additions of 214,000 including M2M, with 59 per cent of its consumer/B2B base on contract plans, which deliver six times higher ARPU than prepaid. Its prepaid base shrank by 321,000.It recently announced new entry-level 4G plans.Away from its mobile operations, EE said that its fixed revenue increased by 12.5 per cent year-on-year, marking its nineth consecutive quarter of growth.

Memahami Penyebab Mabuk Laut dan Cara Mengatasinya

first_imgUntuk menghindari semua itu, lebih baik memilih tempat duduk di bagian tengah kapal di bandingkan di depan atau paling belakang. Biasanya bagian depan atau belakang kapal akan terkena goncangan yang lebih kuat dibanding duduk di tengah. Untuk pengguna kapal laut atau transportasi laut lainnya, biasakan makan secukupnya jangan sampai terlalu kosong atau terlalu kekenyangan.Sedangkan seseorang yang mabuk karena tersugesti karena orang disebelahnya mabuk dan muntah, lebih baik untuk berpindah duduk. Karena dengan melihat mimik seseorang yang mabuk dan mencium bau muntah akan membuat kita menjadi mual. Tak hanya itu, kita juga disarankan untuk tidak fokus pada benda yang diam seperti membaca buku, chatting, memakai teropong dan duduk di dekat mesin kapal. Sebaliknya disarankan untuk melihat garis yang berbentuk horisontal, ini bisa mengirimkan sinyal ke otak bahwa kita berada di kapal yang sedang berayun di terpa gelombang air laut.Bila seseorang mabuk, bila membawa obat anti mabuk segerakan diminum agar menghilangkan mual. Bila tidak membawa, kita bisa merendam kaki dengan air es ataupun memasang karet pada pergelangan tangan sembari tiduran. Selamat mencoba.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedPusing dan Mual Selama Perjalanan?
