Am in rural Berkshire.
Having problem getting Gigaclear fibre installed (they say they no longer have a dig permit to get the fibre from the pot in the main road (public land) across the 2.5 meter distance to my property line).
Want to look at 4G broadband as alternative.
No signal in the house but good signal in driveway which is around 25 meters (through an under-drive conduit) from the Ethernet switch in the living room.
So am thinking about mounting an external combined antenna-4G router device (supplied with Power over Ethernet) on the fence (or even the BT pole which is on my land) near the opening of the conduit and running the Ethernet cable through the conduit into the house.
1 Any potential pitfalls which I need to be aware of?
2 Any recommendations for the external combined antenna-4G router (was wondering about the Zyxel LTE7460-M608 but it is a bit pricey). Would also like a recommendation for an installer in the Reading area (someone who can mount the antenna facing the right direction etc).
3 Finally, where do I look for the best value SIM contract? Will need as large a data allowance as possible (working from home).
All help appreciated!
Thanks - Simon
