You're getting bent over at £45+VAT for a SIM - see https://www.vodafone.co.uk/data-only-sim?icmp=uk~1_c...

There's no need to buy a Meraki gateway either, though I can understand your provider wanting to use standard hardware, and any other options are going to depend on your own level of skill. A Mikrotik Cat6 router can be had for £150 with the VAT and will provide similar performance, and has the same mounting flexibility.

Still need to run a speed test on the mobile, since FaceTime can survive some fairly low bit rates and look reasonable.

If 4G is above 10 Mbps then USO will not apply.

No need for such an expensive set of kit, since if a phone gets above 10 Mbps then any of the standard mobile routers will generally do better.

EE are predicting no coverage indoors, Three don't have 4G in the area at all, Vodafone and O2 say good indoors and outdoors.

At a guess under USO you'll be offered a BT 4G connection and have to pay for an external antenna to be installed, and then as soon as it nudges above 10Mbps down and 1Mbps up they will consider their job to be done.

As Andrew has said, if a quality Internet connection is vital then this location is not the place to move to.

Edit: I ran a quick leased line quote at that postcode, there's fibre and ducting in place so there shouldn't be ECCs, but the distance element of the charging is going to push your monthly cost into the £600 bracket.

Some other properties on the exchange have Openreach FTTP available, but as missed out so far waiting on the R100 contracts but as this I believe Northern lot there is a legal dispute so timelines are going to be off.

Plus never buy on possible future roll-out as plans can and do change.

There aren't many Wireless ISPs in this area but one that might be worth a call to are Caleycom who do have coverage in a lot of areas. Their map isnt showing coverage to that postcode but worth a call if 4G doesnt work out.

Not sure if you are doing spam here. Assuming you aren't that company doesn't seem to be listed on companies house (a company with the same name is but was disbanded last year) and nor does Tarlec Limited who are mentioned in the privacy policy. There are no address details I can find on the site either and they don't seem to appear anywhere much on an Internet search.
