At 4G Internet, we've got over 15 years of experience in bringing fast and robust internet access via alternative technologies to thousands of satisfied customers - both home and business - in some of the most rural, remote and challenging locations across the entire UK.
So why not take a look at our market-leading range of 4G monthly broadband plans - there's bound to be one that fits your internet use.
Learn more about how 4G broadband works here and what's different about a 4G broadband service here.
How can we be so sure?
Because we at 4G Internet offer 4G broadband plans backed by both EE and Vodafone, the two market-leading network operators in the UK - and between them, over 98% of all home and business properties within the UK are alkready covered with 4G broadband.
So it is pretty much definite that, no matter where you are within the entire UK, your location already has sufficient 4G signal coverage.
And you don't even need to worry if your smartphone only has flaky 4G reception - or even if it can't pick up 4G at all. What makes all the difference is that we fit a high gain directional external 4G antenna, which latches onto the strongest available 4G signal outdoors, amplifies it and then pipes it from outside to in. We have numerous customers happily using our 4G broadband services, even though they initially thought their location was in a 4G signal dead spot.
4G coverage is being extended quite literally week by week, so even if your location is not covered right at this moment, it's well worth checking back with us on a very regular basis.
Our market-leading range of 4G broadband plans start from as little as £32.95 inc VAT per month for consumers and £27.50 plus VAT per month for business users. Each offers a fixed amount of data per month for download and upload - just like minutes on a Pay As You Go mobile phone account.
So whether you're a light user just wanting to email, browse the web and shop online, or have much heavier demands for data and are looking to download movies, stream video, watch catch-up TV or run an office with several employees, we've got a package that's right for you.
All our 4G Internet plans have either a minimum 12 month (for Vodafone consumer and business packages) or 18 month (for EE consumer packages) or 24 month (for EE business packages) contract length, but once that's completed, the equipment is yours to keep, no matter whether you choose to extend your service or not. **
** Please note that, if you have made use of a government subsidy scheme to get set up on our service, you will NOT own the equipment provided.
This is because you personally won't have paid for it - the capital cost of the equipment provided in order for you to be able to receive the service will have been fully funded by government grant. Therefore, if you move out from the premises, you will be obliged to leave the equipment behind for the next occupier.
It's unfortunately impossible to state with certainty the speeds that a 4G internet connection will deliver at your property, because performance depends on so many factors, including your proximity to the nearest mast. Theoretically and under perfect conditions, 4G broadband can offer simply blistering speeds of up to 150 Mbps download and 50 Mbps upload - but in the real world, such levels are very unlikely.
However, the speeds delivered by 4G networks are improving all the time and the latest independent research from both OFCOM and Speedtest.net shows today's average 4G speeds across the UK as being around 33 Mbps with EE 4G and around 21 Mbps with Vodafone 4G for download - which is more than sufficient for any typical internet-based activities - including streaming of HD video.
It's well worth noting that the 4G broadband speeds which we tell our customers that they can expect are the average speeds that 4G users experience, when measured across the entire UK as a whole.
Those aren't some figures that we've come up with ourselves either - the average speeds we quote have been independently audited and verified, as you can see for yourself by clicking here. 4G broadband speeds are improving all the time - and of course we have numerous customers across the entirety of the country who are delightedly enjoying 4G broadband at speeds much faster than those averages.
In fact, if you'd like to know the average speeds that we at 4G Internet have achieved for our customers across all the 4G installations we've ever done around the entire UK, these look like this:-
Average Download Speed 34.5 Mbps and Average Upload Speed 17.1 Mbps
Figures correct as of end Aug 2018
We have always thought it by far the fairest to quote the independently audited average UK 4G broadband speeds that customers can expect - instead of the "up to" or "theoretically maximum possible" speeds so often quoted by other broadband providers, but which in reality are almost never anywhere near attainable.
Of course, you've got the comfort of our no strings attached Performance Promise, which you can read about by clicking here.
It's obviously important to maximise 4G signal reception at your location, which is why in most cases we strongly recommend the fitting of an external 4G antenna to your property to deliver optimum performance.
You can find useful information on the average speeds today being delivered by 4G networks by clicking here. Or read detailed case studies on rural broadband solutions we've delivered to UK customers to see what a huge difference our 4G broadband service has made to some of our very satisified clients.
As with all internet services, actual speeds achieved will also depend on many other factors, such as the demand on the internet resource you're looking for and network congestion at the time.
Our professional installation service operates on a true nationwide basis, so normally we can get your 4G broadband service set up and running within just a couple of weeks from date of order.
In a strong 4G signal area? You could get started on 4G broadband - and almost immediately - for under £100 inc VAT all-in!
As you'll see from the charges split out below, becoming a "router only" customer so would normally cost £150 inc VAT. However, to reflect the fact that getting you set up as a router only customer is less complex for us, we will supply your SIM card and activate your new 4G account for FREE! And deliver you your new 4G modem/router for FREE as well!
So your start-up costs as a "router only" customer will only be £99.99 inc VAT!
After that, all you'll have to pay is the monthly charge for your choice of 4G broadband package, as shown at the top of this page!
Weaker 4G where you are? Don't worry - we can still get you installed and again almost immediately!
If however your location has weaker 4G signal coverage, then you will require a full installation with external antenna to ensure a good service. And because we'll fit a high gain directional external antenna, that's still true even if your smartphone only shows next to no 4G coverage.
In such cases, the total set-up costs to get you up and running will amount to £380 inc VAT - and that covers absolutely everything you'll need, including professional set-up and installation of a high gain directional external 4G antenna and our market-leading internal 4G modem / WiFi router to ensure optimum performance.
Here's a simple breakdown of the full start-up costs involved in getting on our 4G broadband service - if you'd like more detail on these, or on the equipment we'll provide and install at your premises, please click here.
- Internal 4G modem/Wifi router £100.00 inc VAT
- High gain directional external 4G antenna £110.00 inc VAT **
- Network SIM card & account activation £40.00 inc VAT **
- Delivery (UK mainland) £10.00 inc VAT **
- Professional set-up & installation £120.00 inc VAT **
** Not required or discounted to zero in the case of "router only" customers
AND DON'T FORGET...
If your location currently suffers with really poor broadband speeds, you may well qualify for a government subsidy!
If so and if you're in an area within coverage of our 4G services, you'll then get set up and installed for absolutely no cost at all! Click here to find out more.
Call us now on 03333 447700 and we'll be happy to help you apply.
Please note that the installation of an external 4G antenna is mandatory if your equipment is supplied under any Government subsidy scheme.
Broadband delivered over 4G has the ability to dramatically transform people's lives - or at least remove a huge amount of frustration. It's a fast, reliable and cost-effective service that's very quick and easy to set up and install.
However, don't just take our word for it. Find out exactly how we've helped a family in Kent and a household in Northumberland finally get on the right side of the digital divide - and how quickly and cost-effectively we did it - by clicking here.
Or for what our customers are telling us about our 4G broadband services and the difference that these have made to them, you can see what they're saying - in their own words - by clicking here.
This depends on what your broadband connection is used for in your property and also just as importantly, how many people are using it.
Below you'll find a handy table that shows how much data some common online activities use. Bear in mind that these figures are only approximations - your actual usage is likely to be around these amounts, but could be more or less, dependant upon a number of variables.
Our advice is to start off with a monthly data package towards the lower end of your expected usage - you can always add extra data to your current month's allowance with a Data Bolt-On if you need to.
Plus it's very easy to upgrade your monthly 4G broadband plan to one with more data if it becomes necessary - just give us a call on 03333 447700 and we'll help get this sorted out for you.
However, please bear in mind that, if you do upgrade your account to one with a higher monthly data allowance, you will not be able to then downgrade it until the end of your contract period.
Please also be aware that with our Vodafone monthly packages, account upgrades can only be applied from the start of the following month.
|Online Activity||Data Consumption|
|One hour of web browsing||10MB - 25MB|
|One hour of Facebook||20MB|
|Downloading one music track||4MB|
|Downloading a non-HD movie or TV program||700MB - 1GB|

|Streaming 1 hour of music or radio||150MB|
|Streaming 1 hour of non-HD video||250MB - 500MB|
|Streaming 1 hour of HD video||2GB|

All of our monthly plans allow you to stay in full control of your 4G Internet account and your monthly data usage. And if you ever do find you've used up your monthly data allowance, don't worry! It's really quick and easy to buy a Data Bolt-On in any given month.
Better yet, to make things as cost-effective and flexible as possible, Data Bolt-Ons are available in a range of sizes - so you only need to buy exactly what you need.

If you're on one of our EE plans, things couldn't be simpler. At any time you're able to log into your My EE account online (click here to do so), view your live monthly data usage and make a one-click monthly purchase of a Data Bolt-On if necessary
If you're on one of our Vodafone plans, things are different - but just as easy. You'll get email and/or text alerts informing you as you approach your monthly data limit and if you want to buy a monthly Data Bolt-On (or want more detail on your exact data usage in the current month), just give us a call on 03333 447700 at any time of the day or night. Our Helpdesk will instantly able to add a Data Bolt-On to your account or provide you with the information you want.
Please also note that with our Vodafone plans, you cannot add a Data Bolt-On on the last day of any month - so make sure that if you think you're going to need a Data Bolt-On, you get one applied no later than the penultimate day of the month.

Although we pride ourselves on the robustness and reliability of our 4G Internet service, there may be the odd occasion where you need help with an issue. It's therefore good to know that our dedicated UK-based tech support staff are just a phone call away and ready to offer assistance, literally at any time of the day or night.
Just call 03333 447700, select menu option 3 for Technical Support and someone will be there to help you as soon as possible.
At 4G Internet, we fully understand that getting a premises connected up to fast and robust broadband service may only be half the answer. These days, there's a growing need to have good broadband connectivity throughout that property - either via hard-wired ethernet or wireless WiFi - because of the number of devices that you may need to connect.
PCs, laptops, tablets, smartphones, smart TVs, set-top boxes, games consoles... the list is evergrowing. Some of those devices may typically be located a long way away from your 4G modem / WiFi router and so only within range of a weak WiFi signal. This problem can be exacerbated dependant on the construction of internal walls - older buildings may have thick stone walls, whereas newer ones may feature internal metallised insulation, both of which can significantly diminish WiFi signal strength.
Fortunately, we at 4G Internet have a number of extremely cost-effective and easy-to-install solutions available to resolve such issues completely. Whether it's a question of simply sourcing an extra wireless access point or even utilising your mains electricity circuit to distribute your broadband service around your premises, we have the answers.
For more information on ways to extend your 4G broadband service around your property, please click here.
We've already shown you how 4G is not just about smartphones, because, provided your location is within coverage, our 4G broadband packages can provide fast and robust internet connectivity to your home or business.
However, 4G broadband is even more versatile than that. Because the equipment needed to receive our 4G services is so easy to transport and set up and because 4G coverage is expanding so rapidly, there are many other uses that our 4G broadband can be put to.
Do your broadband requirements fall into any of the following categories?
- You'd like to be able to take your 4G broadband service with you when you go on holiday
- You'd like 4G broadband for your campervan or mobile home
- You're a business moving from site to site and looking for easily deployable broadband at each new location
- You're a business looking to have very cost-effective back-up connectivity, in the event that traditional connectivity fails
- You're a business needing to monitor remote locations over IP in areas where traditional broadband services simply don't reach
If so, we can almost certainly help! Click here to learn more about the flexibility of our 4G broadband services and how they may well provide the ideal solution for your connectivity needs.
