Maybe someone can advise. I am beginning to sell at craft fairs using a card machine (izettle) and have already experienced coverage issues with 3 at RHS Wisley. I need a reliable method of taking payments at these places and wondered how to do. other places include RHS Hyde Hall and Blenheim Palace. does the new roaming laws give n an option, do I have to have 4 phones and 4 network providers? help would be most appreciated. of course I need as cheaply as possible, I don't need to make calls not texts and it is fairly low internet usage.

4g hotspot with multiple pay as you go sims

just get a dual sim phone, I should imagine you should get a signal with at least one provider.
Then look out for which two providers offer the best coverage in your most used areas, by using their online coverage maps. Then get a cheap payg sim card from each of the best two providers.

you shouldn't need 4 sims. don't forget that a few providers use the same signal, e.g. BT use EE, Tesco use O2. Some places just won't have good signal irrespective of the provider. Vodafone may be a good second option.

Do these places not have Wifi you can use??

If not, your options are, as DD suggested, a cheap dual SIM phone (the Chinese make them by the million - I recommend a Xiaomi); or a portable 3/4G router with external antenna. These obviously pick up more signal than the tiny internal antenna in a phone, so if there is any signal to be found, they will find it. Most of these portables are good for 4-8 hours of use off of their internal batteries, so for a long day you might need an extra battery pack.

Double check the RHS arent using 3/4G blockers; to force people to pay for premium Wifi access first, or nothing 3/4G related will work.

Thanks. I didn't know about the blockers. perhaps I'll give them a call and ask.

Remember O2 and Vodafone share transmitters, as do EE and Three. So probably worth getting a SIM with O2 or Vodafone, and getting a SIM with Three or EE, as you will get duplication other wise.

Any other mobile network will run off one of the big 4, so just checking which network they run off to avoid duplication.
