Editor’s Letter Welcome to the August issue which we guarantee is filled with lots to keep you reading – from broadband and smart voice assistants in the home, to school uniform finds, we’ve got it covered! In the average home, no fewer than ten devices are connected wirelessly to a broadband router at any one time. And with 5G set to be launched later this year, and Fibre Broadband readily available, just how fast does your internet need to be? We take a look here. And with smart voice assistants now in over 12.6 million homes in the UK, the two market-leading brands are Amazon with their ‘Alexa’ and Google with their ‘Home’ hub. But which option is best for you? On Sunday 14th July England beat New Zealand in a thrilling match at Lord’s, winning their first-ever Cricket World Cup! But can England regain the Ashes? In its 71st series, the oldest rivalry in cricket between England and Australia begins in August and runs until mid-September where the final test match will be played at The Oval. Read our review inside. Enjoy this issue and we’ll see you next time. Linda McKeown Editor
