4G BROADBAND

Anyone have any experience of 4g broadband?. Three have offered it to me for £17 a month considering it as a back up at the very least to my Virgin. I have a good 4g signal in my area and have successfully tethered multiple devices off my phone this week in a practice run. Ran Netflix off 2 devices and 2 mobiles at the same time with no issues but before i make a decision thought I'd get some advice?

I think if you want a backup that you know you can trust - and you can afford it; it would be sensible!

Re: 4G BROADBAND

Cannot possibly be unlimited? How much data allowance do you get per month?

Totally Unlimited. I think if you go on there website it's £22 for new customers instead of £17 but it is unlimited. My unlimited phone sim only cost £17.50 a month from 3

Re: 4G BROADBAND

been running on a Smarty sim for a month [its 3 i think] as my drop cable was damaged and duct is blocked - £18 / month on special offer - should be £20 - monthly deal no contract so a bit more expensive than some - its in a router - signal to mast is OK not great i get about 5 down 7 up and it works - normal browsing is ok - anything graphic intensive is slow to load but it gets there

dont stream so cannot comment - have downloaded a couple of 4gig files and they came ok 

it is sold as unlimited data no idea if theres anything in the small print

Re: 4G BROADBAND

Yeah 3/smarty are cheap...but despite what they say I did notice a difference in speed and coverage when I left O2 to save some money....get what you pay for i guess?
