If that offers you 4G then you can pick on of the USO tariffs - though might be better off with other EE Sim and your own router.

If it says to call them, then they think no 4G possible and they might start a FTTP on demand order (emphasis on might)

Thank you Andrew. It offers me a 4G router.

As you have suggested, I will just get an EE unlimited SIM as that looks as though it’ll be in excess of 50mbps. Still a disappointment to come from 300mbps to not only a slower speed but the inconsistency of a mobile connection.

Just replying to myself. I have EE now with a Tp-Link Archer router and get a consistent 25mb down and 10mb up. Not brilliant but much better than the landline.

Is that a proper 4G router or with a dongle?

If its the latter, you may get better speeds from a proper 4G router.

It’s a proper 4G router, however I just swapped it for a different one that I had lying around (as you do) and now I’m getting 45mb/down and 20mb up.

I’m surprised as it is an old HUAWEI B310 and I thought the TP-Link was better...

Do you have enough people nearby that would be willing to stump up about £500/property and get FTTP via a Community Fibre Partnership?

Gigaclear FTTP 300Mb on Order
Three HomeFi 15 to 20Mb.

PlusNet Unlimited Fibre an unreliable 3Mb

Godsells - think you should rephase your comment- not sure how you think you a CFP would be £500 a premises when i assume you have no quote for the area in question that the person is asking about or any understanding of the local network conditions for the premises in question - the figures if they are based on your area will be very misleading , probably massively incorrect and cause the community no end of trouble if tyhey get a cost from Openreach that would be massively different from the 500 you have set an incorrect expectation on . CFP is determined by number of premises and the infrastructure required (both of those are specific to the communtiy in question)
