Re: Default 4G Broadband - more than 100GB per Month - Any o

In reply to a post by wytco0:
Hi I am trying to find if there are any UK 4G providers that will allow larger data amounts per per month? but I can't find any.

Currently I am using EE with a 15GB per month limit, I can upgrade to 30GB per month with EE but they don't seem to do more.

Using my ADSL I normally use about 125 GB per month so Ideally I would like something that allowed that or more.

Is there such a thing available?

Thanks


You can just buy additional data packs on EE though the My EE side. Each extra 10GB is £15.99 - it might not be cheap, but it can be done. I have a 40GB a month SIM (20GB doubled on a deal), and if I run out I can add more that way.

We ran an office of about 60 people on a mixture of 2x4G and 3x ADSL for a month and it worked but was pretty slow. Once you get more than about 3 people on a 4G router (we had commercial ones with multiple external high gain antennas and all internal connections were 1GbE switched) then it degrades to decent ADSL2+ performance. The single user speedtest was 40Mb down and 22Mb up with 40ms latency for the 4G and the routers were rated for 128 concurrent users with 20k+ concurrent connections so you would have expected better but that is what we got.

If you have a business mobile agreement with either O2 or Vodafone (or maybe more) you can switch to shared data. O2 do a 150GB option that we used.

Sky FTTC - 38Mb/9.5Mb

Not true anymore, tethering is now restricted to 2Gb monthly on Three.
People on legacy plans which they have had for years may very well still have totally unlimited although anything new is 2Gb cap on the "all you can eat data" for tethering.

Three are getting better and better at detecting tethering.

Is it ideal to use a mobile phone as a dedicated router for an entire house though?

It's not got anywhere near as much range and often mobile devices begin to function poorly or give up with more than 4 devices connected. Due to this many mobiles will cap the connections at four users.

I've used it in the past on a Mifi with 6 people off it and it has never been throttled.
