Default Help - TEMPORARY INTERNET ACCESS??

Hi,

So 2 weeks ago we made an order with movistar for internet in our home. Today I call them asking why its taking so long and they say "oh we cancelled your order" Seemly the old renters left a big bill and now that has screwed us.

So eventually we got an order placed again after giving them a large deposit but it will take another 10-15 days!!!!!

Anyway I now need temporary internet access for two weeks as i cant work in cafes anymore.

Anyone know who is the best company to get temporary internet access re value and data? I use quite a lot of data so any tips would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Chat up a neighbour for their wi fi code? Also the lead time is a standard quote - they usually arrive quicker.

I find a mobile broadband router with a data only SIM gives me reliable and surprisingly fast service when I am away from home.

I often wonder if I should ditch my landline.
