A wise decision I think Rob.
If you are looking at 4G to replace A/V DSL etc then reliability is your first criteria, then speed, then limits.
For me Threeís 4G 100Gb will be used to supplement my existing 2x VDSL lines using load balancing on my DrayTek. They currently give me 45Mbps combined. With Threeís 4G the total load balanced download speed will be 75Mb. If any line(s) go down the others continue to work. Thatís what this thread was discussing, but your story is interesting Rob
The only glitch could be that 100Gb is not enough for a month, even when taking into account the other two lines. Although my two other lines are unlimited in terms of download the Three connection can be terminated by the router when it reaches 100Gb automatically. But the whole point of having it is to increase overall speed and I donít want to have 1 week at the end of each month where I have reached my limited, it kind of defeats the object!
These days I am staggered how much downloading my household does. Today I have around 50 devices that all use the internet, from IoT to laptops and Sky, Sonos, etc. But the DrayTek is quite smart and will allow me to route traffic from certain devices through just one connection - for example Sky, where speed isnít really important when downloading a film to watch live (as long as itís fast enough to watch without buffering I am happy). This will then alleviate download being spread onto the Three 4G connection.
Oh, and the reason for all of this is in the first place is because I work from home and want my work computer to have the full 75Mb speed. Previously sharing a single 25Mb line with my kids during the summer holidays was causing me some issues!
