Found 2nd Oct 2017
Hi all, I have to wait a few weeks before broadband can be installed in my property so I'm looking for a cheap mobile broadband dongle for a few weeks.
What works out best?
Thanks in advance

If your talking about Hardware then a cheap or second hand Android or Windows Phone in Hotspot mode or a 4g MIFi box, put in on charge and place it by an upstairs window so it can recieve a good 3/4G signal and should cover a small house with WiFi.,

As for the Data either EE or Vodafone on a 30 Day contract is probably your best bet as they not worried about Tethering your Data, last time I checked Vodafone did a 50GB data per month on a 30 Day Data Sim Only for around 25 or 30 quid.

That's brilliant, didn't even think getting a data sim and whacking it in the spare android I have and using it as a hotspot. Thanks.

If your existing mobile provider allows tethering, and offers a monthly upgrade or bolt on to unlimited 4G, you could always add that on for a month.

Not suer if that would be sufficient for online gaming etc right enough, but has always worked for me for iPad and general laptop use.
