Heres my setup. 3G aerial on roof to '3' USB dongle socket into TP-Link router then powerplugs to other routers round the house. Signal strength ~ 34% after much fiddling about.
No BB via phone line (7Km from exchange (Field - WMFIE)) and attached to 'Cabinet 1'!!
Currently on '3' 24 month contract with 15Gb download limit. Get about 1.5Mbps.
Contract up for renewal in May and Staffordshire CC likely to sign with BT for BDUK developments at the same time which will hopefully improve the situation but timescales are vague.
As often happens I have about 8 - 10gb of programme upgrades (Logic/Kontakt content etc) to download. Clearly this takes ages and busts my 'allowance' for the rest of the month for any other download requirements.
AYCE is only available with a phone (which I don't need) and I can't think of a way to connect my 3G aerial to a phone to use as a WiFi hotspot anyway. The '3' dongle has a CRC 9 socket but phones don't. I have tried those 'sleeves' that fit over phonesbefore to pick up their wireless signal and was underwhelmed.
So the question is what to do next. I need more dowload capacity than I can get on their monthly contract, AYCE seems a non-starter and BDUK changes may be round the corner (my FOI requests seem to suggest that FTTC is a serious possibility).
