4G PAYG USB Dongle as a Failover


Distinguished Member
Does anyone have and recommend any 4G Pay as You Go USB dongles as a Failover for regular broadband?

I have fibre broadband (fibre to the cabinet) and was looking at a way to maintain Internet access if there are issues with the connection. I have an ASUS DSL-AC68U Modem/Router that has a USB 3.0 port which can be used a backup WAN.

I am looking for a 4G USB device that is Pay as You Go as I doubt it will get used much and don't want to have to pay a monthly fee.

Not a dongle, but if you have a good Three signal in you house, you can buy unlimited data bundle from 3 for £20 it lasts a month, I’ve done that when my home broadband failed. I get about 35-40mbps

A friend uses one in a 3 mifi dongle when he visits his caravan, it works well.
