Halo builds on what BT Plus started a couple of years ago. BT Plus is essentially a premium package that adds the operator;s Complete Wi Fi Guarantee, dedicated UK and Ireland based customer support (this will soon become standard for all) and their ;Keep Connected Promise; (i.e. if your fixed line broadband goes down then they;ll send a mini 4G Hub with unlimited data until it;s back up).On top of the above BT Plus also included benefits for BT Mobile customers, such as double data across all mobiles on the Plus account, the fastest 4G networks speeds available (no speed capping) and they 'll enable unlimited data across all your phones when the fixed line broadband goes down. Ideally the ISP intended for BT Plus to be used by those who took both their fixed broadband and mobile plans.
BT has a new converged plan that aims to make life easier with one place providing your connectivity at home and on the move. BT Halo promises 5G on mobile, superfast Wi Fi at home and a tech support team to keep it all running.

The Milky Way Halo is a halo like region that surrounds the Milky Way galaxy. It is aid to be containing the majority of the mass of the galaxy but scientists still do not possess enough information about its shape and exact mass.When the universe started expanding and cooling, normal matter converged together into various gases, dust, planets, stars and galaxies. The CMB (cosmic microwave background) estimates indicate that the universe is made up of 5 percent of normal matter protons, neutrons and other subatomic particles, 25 percent dark matter, and about 70 percent dark energy.

Hundreds of people converged on both sides of the main streets in Banja Luka, the capital city of the semi autonomous Republika Srpska (RS) on Monday, as columns of police, war veterans and students paraded to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the creation of the Serb run Bosnian entity.Republika Srpska declared its creation on January 9, 1992, triggering an inter ethnic bloody war, which claimed more than 100,000 lives. The war became infamous for the mass killing of Bosnian Muslims and Croats at the hands of Serbian forces.
The surface of Mars has extreme temperatures and the atmosphere does not provide adequate protection from high energy radiation.ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW:The researchers believe that their "Ice Home" design provides a sound engineering solution to offer astronauts a safe place to call home.The Mars Ice Home is a large inflatable torus, a shape similar to an inner tube, that is surrounded by a shell of water ice.This is just one of many potential concepts for sustainable habitation on the Red Planet in support of NASA's journey to Mars."After a day dedicated to identifying needs, goals and constraints we rapidly assessed many crazy, out of the box ideas and finally converged on the current Ice Home design, which provides a sound engineering solution," Kevin Vipavetz from NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, said in a statement yesterday.The Mars Ice Home design has several advantages that make it an appealing concept, according to the scientists.It is lightweight and can be transported and deployed with simple robotics, then filled with water before the crew arrives.It incorporates materials extracted from Mars, and because water in the Ice Home could potentially be converted to rocket fuel for the Mars Ascent Vehicle, the structure itself doubles as a storage tank that can be refilled for the next crew.Another critical benefit is that water, a hydrogen rich material, is an excellent shielding material for galactic cosmic rays and many areas of Mars have abundant water ice just below the surface.Galactic cosmic rays are one of the biggest risks of long stays on Mars.This high energy radiation can pass right through the skin, damaging cells or DNA along the way that can mean an increased risk for cancer later in life or, at its worst, acute radiation sickness.The Ice Home concept balances the need to provide protection from radiation, without the drawbacks of an underground habitat.The design maximises the thickness of ice above the crew quarters to reduce radiation exposure while also still allowing light to pass through ice and surrounding materials."All of the materials we've selected are translucent, so some outside daylight can pass through and make it feel like you're in a home and not a cave," Kevin Kempton, part of the Langley team, said.NASA has set a goal of sending humans to the Red Planet in the 2030s.It is important for astronauts to have something to look forward to when they arrive on the Red Planet, Kempton said."After months of travel in space, when you first arrive at Mars and your new home is ready for you to move in, it will be a great day," he noted.Also read: Viral photo of India on Diwali eve is not taken by NASA, it is an old hoax
