Temporarily relocated due to work and need no contract Broadband

Posted 3rd Apr
Hi everyone!

Long time lurker and appreciator of the site. I'm at a bit of a quandary. I've temporarily moved into an apartment for the next few months as I work in a local hospital and now need a broadband connection. Everything I have seen for 'no contract' broadband includes a fairly pricey set-up fee, as well as inflated monthly bills. Does anyone know of any offers at the moment for NHS staff/Key workers in similar situations?

Thanks!

I agree with Bargainhead.
Voxi £10 pm sim and R218h router
Get one of those voxi Sims, rolling monthly contract and a mifi device is another option.
Voxi (Voda) £10/m no contract no credit check unlimited everything. Marketed as 6GB data but Voxi doesn't meter, so it's unlimited until Voxi graduates counting college. Throw the SIM in even a lowly battered £10 Android handset and turn on hotspot. If you need ethernet / wired / gigabit, USB tether the handset to suitable router, example MO at hotukdeals.com/com…674

Voxi is (sadly) not even a contract.
What about the three 24 month unlimeted everythjng for 12 pound per month after cashback.

I.e. thether from your mobile for internet. And cancel discard your old mobile contract

Yep definitely go the Voxi route and even consider buying a cheap 4g router if you don't have a spare phone to tether.
I've been using this method since August 2019 with a Huawei B525 router, It's saved me a fortune!
A shame to waste the unlimited calls and texts on Voxi , why not stick sim in a phone and tether?

My router I mentioned above has a rj11 phone socket on the rear that allows me to plug my house phone in and make & receive phone calls through the sims inclusive minutes, It can also send and receive text messages through the Huawei app.
Also by using a dedicated router the wifi and signal coverage is way better than a tethered phone.

If you don't mind me asking, what type of speeds do you get?

If I put my Three unlimited sim in the router I get 5 bars of signal and the most crappiest speeds of sometimes less than 0.5Mbps but that's Three's network throttling.
When I use my Voxi (Vodafone) sim I only have a week 3 bar signal but my speeds are miles better than crappy Three's and it often peaks 25Mbps on Voxi.
Knock on your neighbours door & ask to piggyback on theirs & pay the £10 per month.
If you are in an apartment. As a key worker, have you considered asking neighbours to piggy back on their Wi-Fi?
