    I have talk talk at my house but have just visited my grandmothers who does not have any broadband. She also has no computers anywhere in the house. I have brought my phone and my iPad.

    So I have always had unlimited internet at home and so wasn't sure how much I used. There was no option for unlimited internet with my pay monthly phone so I chose the £20 option presuming that would be quite a bit of internet. Well it lasted a few days and turned out to me only 10mb (absolute rip off).

    I'm obviously going to have to seriously ration by internet usage but I would like to at least be able to go online and watch a few videos.

    I currently only have 1mb left.

    I could connect to the bt hotspot in the house but it's so expensive. I can't afford the £39 a month it's charging for th decent amount of internet.

    So I have a spare iPhone. Plan was to buy a three network sim and buy an unlimited internet add on which is a very reasonable price but I've left my iphone at my house which I can't go back for. Cheapest smartphone is £40 that allows personal hotspot. I can't use a single as I have no USB port.

    So what can I do? Any ideas.

    LOL

    And 10Gb not 10Mb (unless it really is VERY limited...)

    MSE recommends this from ID Mobile with 15Gb. £25/month plus £9.99

    You can order a PAYG Simcard from Three and use it as a hotspot for your laptop.

    £10 - 1gb data
    £20 - 12gb data
    £25 - unlimited data

    I suffer the same pain as the OP when it comes to visiting my grandparents house.

    I used to be able to get a neighbour's unsecured WiFi connection but only whilst in the spare bedroom and it felt like dial-up.

    Then I could get a three bar signal strength BT hotspot when in the kitchen only.

    Now I can only at best get a VERY intermittent one bar signal strength BT hotspot at the very best and only when in the spare bedroom. :unimpressed:
