If you want to take the leap and switch to using 4G for your home or office Internet but could not find a 4G SIM Card with enough inclusive data for a competitive price then the search might just be over.

There is a new 4G SIM Card with a large amount of data with a good price.  You can get a 40GB per month 4G SIM Card for just £40.00 per month rental or a whopping 100GB per month 4G SIM Card for just £70.00 per month.

You can get either offer with a choice of Vodafone 4G SIM or O2 4G SIM card so you can choose the network that has the best mobile coverage in your location.

 

100GB 4G Data SIM

Once you have completed and returned your 4G SIM Card contract and receive your 4G SIM Card, simply insert it into your 4G Router and enjoy high speed 4G Mobile Broadband and enjoy the benefits of large amounts of monthly data.

This is especially useful if you need a Rural 4G Internet solution but have been put off by the high cost of large data SIM plans.  You can now invest in a high speed 4G Router like the Huawei E5186 and an outdoor MIMO 4G Antenna like the Fulland MIMORAD and with this new 4G Data SIM card plan you can enjoy high speed rural 4G Internet at a competitive price.

Now, you may ask, why don’t I just get one of those unlimited 4G Data SIM Cards that 3mobile offer?  Well, the answer is simple, the Three Mobile Unlimited Data SIM Card is ONLY FOR USE in a mobile phone / smart phone and without tethering.  If you take the unlimited data SIM out of your phone and put it in a 4G router so you can share your high speed 4G connection with everybody in the house then after a few days or weeks, 3 Mobile will disconnect your SIM card until you put it back in the authorised device.

This 4G Data SIM card is supplied on the Vodafone or O2 Mobile phone networks and will provide you with a 4G Internet connection – however you will not be able to use this for things like remote access or CCTV becuase your 4G router will only be allocated a PRIVATE IP address so you will not be able to connect to your router from the internet or use dynamic DNS (DDNS / DYNDNS) – this is becuase the networks use CGNAT (Carrier Grade NAT) so the public IP address you see when you visit a site like www.showmyip.co.uk will be the PUBLIC IP address on the O2 internet node, but behind that single public IP address will be 250 devices each with a PRIVATE IP address so you could not route through to your device,

If you want to use a 4G SIm card for something like a 4G CCTV installation then you would need to use a Fixed IP SIM Card which is not available directly from the mobile networks.  Fixed IP SIM Card Providers have an MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) relationship with the mobile networks and have invested in infrastructure in order to deliver the Fixed IP SIM card service so you would pay a premium for this service.

As competition increases in the 4G mobile broadband arena then more 4G data plans with increasing amounts of data at more competitive prices will become available, but for now this 100GB 4G Data SIM Card deal is one worth considering.  It is on a 24 month contract with payment by direct debit.

To take advantage of this offer you need to call 01708 838058 and they will send you a contract to complete.  The whole process takes a few days once you have completed and returned the contract.
