Looking for unlimited texts about 200 minutes and 10GB data with tethering. Hoping to find something close to £13.
As others have said, there's little chance of 10GB data on a phone contract for £13. That puts you in the low to medium price bracket for a SIM only contract, whereas 10GB is a premium amount of data.
It seems that Three are moving to a more aggressive stance on tethering a phone contract. Occasional use is regarded as OK, but if your primary use of the contract is data sharing, they expect you to buy a Mobile Broadband contract.
Three charge £15/month for 10GB data on SIM only Mobile Broadband on a 30 day basis. This account allows you to share all the data and I believe the entire 10GB allowance is available via Feel at Home.
My Three Mobile Broadband SIM is currently in a Netgear AC762S 4G Wi-Fi hotspot that I bought as a SIM free device allowing me to move between networks at will. I intend to change the AC762S for the new AC785S
with DC113A Ethernet cradle
when that hardware becomes available.
My plan is to use the mobile broadband as failover for my Zen connection when at home, but the Ethernet cradle for the older AC762S is not available in the EU. I could use Wi-Fi to hook the AC762S to my router, but the AC762S only supports 2.4GHz which is very congested where I live. The newer AC785S is supposed to have a more readily available Ethernet cradle and is a newer generation of hardware, with dual band Wi-Fi and LTE Category 4 support. It makes more sense to upgrade to a newer device than spend money on an AC762S solution.
When I need the connection elsewhere, I'll undock the Wi-Fi hotspot and take it with me.
