You can get this budget 4G model with a contract from Three, or unlocked – meaning you can shop around for a data deal. It only has six hours of working battery time, but solid download speeds of 150Mbps.

While 5G connectivity is not yet available in most of the UK, if you want to be ahead of the curve, this Huawei model is a solid option. It’s available through O2 or unlocked, and is very fast.

Netgear 4G LTE Orbi Router LBR20

This larger plug-in router isn’t great on portability, but it could be useful if your Wi-Fi at home is unstable. It can meld its 4G connection into the network so that it kicks in when your Wi-Fi drops off.
