Oh nice! Thank you for taking the time to share.

I always thought they detected this kind of use. I’ll grab a sim today then.
three was the network that limited, and Ofcom forced them to change their direction. The other networks never had an issue, but unlimited is relatively new.

I won't be switching to EE after all based on the tests I just did.

Three download: 30-40mbps
EE download: 2-8mpps

Weirdly, three got 4pm UPLOAD and EE got 25mb UPLOAD.

So for now, I think I'll be sticking with three as it is dramatically faster. As long as I push the traffic through a VPN I don't get the lag. That's the best mix right now.

But I will test EE speeds regularly with my EE phone sim that I have and switch if their infrastructure / speed around here changes.

The issue here if I understand it correctly is that you are limited to a maximum of 12 devices being connected to stop people using it as home broadband solution.

Would a router level VPN mask the number of devices connected?

I've only got 5 things connected. PC cabled, 2 mobiles, xbox and kodi box. I was under the impression three Home-fi is supposed to be a home broadband solution.

Three have no real idea how many devices are connected to your internal network. You don't need a VPN to mask anything.

Some ISPs (e.g. Sky, and Vodafone) log on to the router and look at how many devices are on the DHCP.

It is pretty silly, as you can have 1 person and 30 devices, and 4 people and 3 devices. Its technically meaningless.

We’re talking here about using a Three phone SIM in your own router.

I thought one was using a Three provided router? (Home-Fi). If not, then I've got the wrong thread!

Its the same thing. The only difference is they use a different APN by default.
