What is 4G 5G home broadband?

Traditional ADSL broadband is sent to your home via your fixed telephone cable. Even if you don’t use your home phone for making calls, you’ll still need to pay a monthly fee to use the landline cable for your home broadband. 4G & 5G home broadband is a simple, plug and play solution which requires no landline, and no engineer visits. So, your broadband can be up and running minutes after your router arrives. When you sign up to a 4G / 5G home broadband deal, you will be supplied with a router, similar to your traditional home broadband one. All you need to do is pop in the sim card supplied and connect the power supply, and you’re good to go!

What speed can 4G home broadband achieve?

In perfect conditions and with the correct antenna position, it's theoretically possible to achieve speeds of 300Mbps download and 50Mbps upload with (4G-LTE Advanced). In reality, this is extremely unlikely. The average customer download speed is 25Mbps with a 7.5Mbps upload. This is similar to a standard non-fibre broadband connection. Given that most 4G Internet customers are living in rural locations, this speed and reliability can be a significant improvement over a standard fixed line broadband connection. If you’re in an area with a weak 4G signal, we would recommend installing an external aerial which will make a significant difference to reliability and achievable speeds. 4G broadband specialists like ‘4G Internet' can supply and professionally fit an external 4G aerial for you. Alternatively if you know where your local transmitter is you can fit your own aerial, a directional aerial will provide a higher gain, but only advisable if you know where your local mast is located. Broadbandbuyer stock a wide range of 4G & 5G aerials. Ofcom's mobile broadband coverage checker is a good place to start if you want to get a general overview of service in your area. The checker compares 4G signal from O2, EE, Vodafone & Three.

What speed can 5G home broadband achieve?

According to a study by Opensignal in September 2021 the average 5G download speed in the UK is 105Mbps. The average 5G upload is 13.4Mbps. 5G signal in the UK is still very limited and typically only found in key cities. The UK has a long way to go to maximise the potential of 5G, to put this into perspective here are some of the top download speeds achieved around the world using 5G; South Korea 423.9Mbps, Norway 355.30Mbps, Sweden 291.30Mbps, Australia 231.0Mbps

What 4G / 5G broadband options are there?

Option 1: 4G Mobile tethering

Tethering is a quick and simple solution to sharing your mobile phone’s broadband connection. By using your phone to create a WiFi hotspot, other devices can share your data allowance. This solution is usually adequate for travelling, camping or ad hoc sharing. The Wi-Fi signal range will not be as powerful as a home router so it’s unlikely to penetrate to adjacent rooms.

Option 2: Mobile broadband device

Typically known as a ‘Mi-Fi’ or ‘Dongle’, these devices are usually a similar size to a small mobile phone and powered by either an internal battery or via USB. The device will create a Wi-Fi network which will generally allow up to 64 devices to connect simultaneously. The Wi-Fi range can be limited as they aren’t as powerful as a standard home broadband router.

Option 3: 4G / 5G Sim enabled device

Some tablet devices, e.g. Apple iPads, have sim card slots and can connect directly to the internet, without the need for any additional hardware or Wi-Fi connection. A pre-loaded sim card is the most cost-effective solution. For more regular use, you may wish to consider a sim-only contract.

Option 4: 4G/5G Home broadband solution

With this option, a sim is placed in a 4G / 5G enabled router, enabling up to 64 devices to connect to the broadband simultaneously. 4G / 5G home broadband is a growing trend driven by the increasing availability of unlimited data plans. 4G home broadband is particularly popular in rural areas where 4G broadband can be faster and more reliable than a standard broadband connection. One of the main benefits of this option is the absence of line rental fees. Sim contracts vary in data allowances and can be from 1-24 months in duration. For regular use, we would recommend an unlimited tariff. Compare 4G 5G broadband


Short term 4G 5G contract options

If you're moving home or need a temporary broadband solution, mobile broadband could be the answer. Filter the 4G 5G home broadband options above to compare one-month contracts.

One month rolling contracts are typically more expensive per month but you will only need to give 30 days notice if you decide to end your contract. Short term broadband contracts usually incur a larger set-up fee. This one-off fee is typically to cover the cost of the router, which you can keep after your contract ends. If you already have a 4G / 5G router and only require ad hoc usage, it may be more cost-effective to purchase a prepaid SIM card. A prepaid 'data-only' SIM card will give you a fixed amount of data without incurring a monthly fee. Prepaid SIM card data is typically valid for 12 - 24 months although some value plan options may limit this to 90 days. Vodafone and Three have some of the best rates for pre-paid mobile data.
