4G for home broadband

Hi all,


Sorry if this is in the wrong place.


Recently I've been with BT and had their halo package and as part of that package I had really good 4G+ and was getting over 130mbps...


Recently I've bought a new house that doesn't have a home copper phone line. Instead it has some OFNL fibre thing. Problem is, BT dont support this. So there goes my halo 4G...


So as BT have stopped providing me the home broadband, they have cut my 4G speed to 28mb.


I work from home and I have no internet here as not many people do this specific fibre setup and the slow 4G speed from BT is barely usable.


So my question, does EE provide anything suitable?

So I've found d an EE PAYG sim, topped it up and did a speed test.


I got 90mbps download speed (used all 10 quid on one test).


So if I were to get an unlimited data sim and stick it in a 4g router, would I get like a tethering limit?

Hi @Wb83,

There is a 1000GB fair usage policy and some other conditions but these do not appear to be enforced yet.

Hi Peter,


I'll be way within that as I only use 200gb a month max.


Shame theres not chat to staff on here.

What does BT Wholesale Broadband Availability Checker estimate for your phone number? Post just the whole table and the line above it, blanking out your phone number. If it doesn't recognise your phone number, use the Address Checker, not the Postcode Checker.
