I am really new to the 3G/4G broadband internet, but I have moved to a farm residents and have since lost my fibre broadband, as it's not available in my area and normal broadband is worse than a 56k modem ;D (remember them?)
Anywho.. I was looking into getting a home wifi setup that will allow my family to connect to a router as standard and then a 3G/4G USB Modem to plug into the TP-Link 3G/4G router.
Is this a viable setup? is there a cheaper way or better way?
For data allowance many companies are no longer doing unlimited data contracts but the only one I have seen is Three's website offering in the sim only deals an "all you can eat" data contract for £17 month for mobile phone sim only (cheap 24 month contract). BUT (as always theres a BUT) When I choose mobile broadband sim the price is higher and the data is capped? I was looking at their tariffs and they state that some all you can eat sim offer a 4GB allowance for use as a personal hotspot.
So my question is. If I bought a £17 phone sim contract and put it into the USB modem and had that in my router. Will THEY know its being used as a wifi established internet connection for multiple computers (and incure charges) or is a connection just a connection and wouldn't make a difference? If so how'd they know that my mobile phone has been turned into a wifi hotspot and got more than one device connected, in order for it to be restricted as a 4GB data allowance?
