    Hi,

    I'm renting for next few months, may be moving after that. Don't want to install BT line, not sure about cable. Is mobile broadband (Tmobile etc) a viable alternative for anything other than email/browsing? Can I use it for online gaming on my laptop? Can it be used for Xbox Live or PSN? I'm sure the answer is no, but confirmation welcome.

    Thanks

    I wouldn't, mobile internet isn't really designed for such heavy use. In my opinion your best option is cable broadband (more reliable, consistent accurate speeds), adsl broadband (hit and miss depending on your BTphone line), then mobile.

    Mobile broadband can have quite low download usage limits on it and the speeds are no where near as good. Also its quite expensive for what you get.

    Don't forget if you purchase cable/adsl broadband when you move you can take i with you for no extra charge. So if your moving to a cable area then get cable broadand imo.
