    Actually I lied BT still do do it - ISDN

    So that's 3 options:
    1. Rent office/desk space with broadband
    2. Satellite broadband
    3. ISDN

    Reading this I'm curious what the good answers you got elsewhere were.

    Perhaps you could take a USB stick round to a friend's house?
    Will work inside IR35. Or for food.

    The rent a office/desk could be in a mate's or other relation's house.

    He got the same answers that he got here (even the satellite one)

    There's those Draytek routers that can bond two (or more?) broadbands together, if you want it bad enough...

    Cost of two lines and two ISP accounts too though...

    Or host the modelling computer in a DC and remote in, RDP, VNC or X-Windows....

    If you are currently getting 3-5Mb speeds then your issue is possibly related to your Netflix/Xbox/etc streaming while you're working. 3D rendering does not require a lot of bandwidth. The processing is done in the computer, not over broadband. The bit that requires the broadband is opening and saving files. A 1GB file (quite big) would take about 12 minutes. A 100MB files is only going to be a minute... unless you're streaming video, etc at the same time.

    if the 4g signal is good, what's wrong with MIFI?

    If you want more data then three does an unlimited data plan for £28/month. Vodafone 30GB/month for 25 or £50GB for £30.

    I can't be arsed looking at other providers.

    Unlimited data plans have a "fair" use requirement.

    The problem is "fair" depends on how much other people use....

    I use satellite broadband in Spain, it's painfully slow, very unreliable and to be avoided at all costs (we have no option unfortunately as we live in a mountain)

If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”
