Moving into a new house and just looking at options for getting phone and internet connected to it.

I wont be staying there all the time so wanted to explore the cheapest options of getting connected.

I've got an OK mobile deal for 20gb data and unlimited free calls with EE. Wondering if i can use this instead of paying line rental/ phone and internet with BT or Virgin

I've seen some of the routers where you can use a sim card to use your mobile data and just wondering if there is something similar available where i could use a cordless phone which would also use the sim mins.

So basically a all in one package of router and phones or similar, which would use my mobile sim data and mins?

Why do you need a phone?
Just use your mobile, and your 20gb. Connect to the internet through your phone.
If you want another option, buy a mifi and a 30 day rolling contract sim for it.
I picked one up in Currys last week. £10 for the unit, £16 for 23gb on a 30 day rolling contract. (I never posted it as a deal, but it is a great deal, especially if with Three (which I am) as I got £7 off of the £23 a month 23gb 30 day rolling contract)

To sum up:

- £9.99 one off payment

- £ X amount every 30 days (had cheaper options, £9.99 and £15 I think)

= Sorted

Don't understand why you need a 'home' phone to use the unltd mins ee Sim. Isn't the mobile for that, unless it is for other family members use?
As for data /Internet at home, as above use a MiFi device with a rolling 1 month Sim or, one of those 24 months use until you finish 20gb pre paid three Sim card for £27(only available at Amazon) iirc

Set your phone up as a wifi hot-spot then connect pc. Tablet or whatever to it. Easy to do

Yes that's what I was thinking why don't u just do that. go to hotspot configure it it's very easy to do u just need set a password and enable it and then search from ur other devices same as any other wifi hotspot.

Yes hotspot, Voda also are doing 3/4G 15GB for £15/30GB for £20/50GB for £25 on a 30 day sim only if the V20GB/signal is not suitable

£5 off mifi devices with a 30 day sim just now at Voda just now. You can get a 3G mifi for £20 or 4G for one £35 one off payment or source like someone said from a cheaper source + its the same rates as I posted above

Cheers guys, I did think hotpsot myself but wouldn't the range on that be a bit short though? I was thinking of being able to connect devices anywhere in the house. At least with a router set up you can connect network adapter plugs to get the signal stronger in places or have a direct connection into my sat receiver box or something.

The phone would be used like a home phone rather than a mobile if you know what i mean.

I'll still have my mobile separate but a phone to have in the house which i or my partner could use or take calls from.

use a wireless access point, that will connect to your phones hotspot and broadcast a strong signal throughout.

Huawei B593s-22 has pots/rj11 for a telephone.

B593s-22 model has the widest frequencies to cover all networks if you ever change networks, you may find 3G less congested than 4G these days with decent enough speed.

Useful thread on that model, it is for Ireland but o2/3 Ireland who are now 3 Ireland https://www.boards.ie/b/thread/2057288897/?

No problem, I used a Option Globetrotter 3G Router with RJ11 telephone socket years ago many places around the world, wifi and phone - if you have good Vodafone 3G coverage TalkMobile usually does some great deals on 30 day sims & try not have router sim on the same network as your mobile/s so if there is a problem with EE/Virgin you still have a connection to the world is my advice, from experience lol shall we say (we will say no more!) X)

Talkmobile X-Large 30 day SIM
2500 minutes
5000 texts
15GB data

£15.00 a month
