Well at the beginning of the year they added another phone mast near my work.

We now all get a strong 4G signal. At home not so strong.

If we are talking mainly from a phone perspective, I tend to hardly ever use my Wifi now as the price of data on a monthly Sim plan is reasonable.
At times my phones been even faster than my landline broadband.

I'm guessing you'd have a router with sim card slot.
These already exist for 4G so devices would plug into that or connect wirelessely.

I've been told that unlimited data is now available for around 25 a month, not much different to broadband prices!

I was offered unlimited everything for 18 on 4G. Just found out that 5G is being installed near me, so that gives me another option soon.
