Thanks Tezza, That looks most interesting. However my IPad is the old version one IPad3 with that large flat plug in type. Hmm unless you mean the lead ( one you suggest ) plugs into the router and TV and then picks up the signal from the iPad? Cheers.Try this one https://www.amazon.co.uk/30-pin-DIGITAL-adapter-connector-ADAPTOR/dp/B00CPMF86M

Daft questions alert! Would I be able to use broadband to watch terrestrial tv? I’m with virgin now - paying for broadband and a landline I hardly use. My tv is just the basic package, same as free view. Also, would I be able to put the sim into a mifi or my iPad? I don't know if you can download the virgin media apps onto your I-pad, if you can then you can watch the majority of your channels through the app and you could then mirorcast ( think its called that ) to your tv, that's if your TV has this feature

Well, all done. Smart TV connected to a 3 Home WI-fi but connected to the 12v system via a cigarette lighter fitting. Result. Thanks. Switched it all on to set up and thought I would try and get onto Netflix, selected Grimm and ended up in the van for 3 hours :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

I've been with 3 for many years now mobile phone wise... And with virgin media fibre for home Internet for even longer... Virgins price has, slowly crept up to a point where I'm seriously considering swapping to 3 mobile WiFi instead... Im thinking one of these... Huawei B535 WebBox Review: Best 4G Broadband Router So Far May be the way I go, as they seem to have the highest potential upload/download speeds, AND supports 5g With an an additional external antenna on the van would give me the best chance of a signal wherever we end up In fact I could probably leave it in the van parked outside and connect from the house. Can they be used on 12v?

Carol theres different routers spoken about here if you read thru the posts I believe they all will defiantly the B 310 & B311 will with the ebay lead I posted the one in the inital post will. But the b353 hasn't been confirmed ?? I read somewhere that 3 are doing a special at the moment 1/2 price for 6 mths on a £21 a month contract with the B311 http://www.three.co.uk/Discover/Devices/Huawei/HomeFi?memory=0&colour=Black

I’m putting off activating a contract as I’ll have to give a month’s notice to Virgin and I’m dithering as it means I won’t have my normal tv access and I’m thinking off cancelling my landline. In the world of retirement these are momentous decisions! Plus I’m taking painkillers for my arthritic knee and I think they’re affecting my brain function! :)

Has anybody had any experience with the three home broadband? I am thinking about ditching virgin and signing up to three unlimited plan and was was wondering if it would also work in the motorhome for weekends away. I can't see why it wouldn't unless it is tied to your local transmitter. HUAWEI AI Cube | Huawei AI speaker with 4G router | Three I have a Three, data only package, £11 per month for 20gig, which I use with a Huawei B315s router, and connected to 4g and 3g LTE MIMO outdoor Antenna on the roof of motorhome, it works great, and it is connected off the 12v battery. very easy to install, and has 4 ethernet outputs. we use this to run our CCTV so can always see MH. have also brought it home when our virgin was playing up, also worked well hope this helps

Just a bit of information about wifi speeds for anyone with a mifi (as opposed to the likes of Sky, Virgin etc.). The latest update on Windows 10 can slow down your internet speed. Mine was atrocious, even with my new Huawei 315. I fixed it by updating the driver for my (quite new) Acer Netbook. Some info here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4000432/windows-10-fix-wi-fi-problems

If planning to use abroad, be aware that you may be cut off or a surcharge imposed if Three detect that you are spending more time abroad than in the UK. Its explained in the Ts and Cs To ensure all customers can benefit from Go Roam in Europe with roaming at no extra cost, we reserve the right to apply a surcharge in case of excessive use. In order to help us to detect possible abuse of Go Roam in Europe, we may monitor your usage and presence. We'll look at the balance of your roaming and domestic (UK) activity over 4 months, and if you spend the majority of your time abroad and consume more abroad than at home over the 4 months, we have the right to add a small surcharge to your continued roaming usage Happened to my brother, bought the kit, used for 1 month in the UK, 6 weeks in Indonesia, 2 weeks back home, then after 1 month in France (he now has a long term contract there) he's been cut off. Not supposed to happen in EU, just an (unspecified) surcharge applied, but maybe it...

I would think if people want to download/stream lots of data and be abroad more than UK local SIM would be a better bet wouldn’t they? netflix is part of go binge package so anything watched with that would not come off the 19Gb data you are allowed each month in the EU. i have used mine only in the UK so far without problem edit: unless there is an f1 gp on I don’t watch the box much at all. Watch odd bits on iPad or surface with Netflix in an evening now it’s getting dark earlier depending what’s going on. Mainly internet, messaging, calls, mail I would think for me

No, Go Binge data comes out of the 19 Gbyte or less allowance when roaming. and counts towards surcharging or cutting you off if you break the (obscure and difficult to find) Ts and Cs. So it's not real when roaming despite what they say. It only works in the UK. It's only a bonus for people on an "advanced" plan contract with a limited data allowance of at least 12 Gbytes who subscribe to the small range of services. There's nothing free available. I suspect Three might even be getting a kickback from them. Otherwise it's pointless. I costs them nought to do it, where they have the spare capacity it works, where they don't, it won't, paying customers will be prioritised. E.g. I have a Three mobile contract with unlimited everything, calls, texts and data (they even state that you could use 1 Terabyte/month, no problems). So "Go Binge" is...

Not sure what you mean about missing a trick, my 3 Home WiFi is a landline/broadband replacement for me and works very well. If you don’t have a mobile that does wifi calling it wouldn’t be difficult to set up voip. I have only used the lan socket to connect to a laptop not connected a voip phone so can’t say if that would be all you need to do on the B311 or not. my contract stated that ago Binge does NOT come out of the data package. Mine is totally unlimited (in UK) but is not a phone contract. There are several of us on here with the same thing
