    Sorry to read that, I hope things work out for you.

    Looks (to me anyway) that this could be a case of constructive dismissal, your boss/employer seems like a real piece of work.

    Good luck (y)

    You can just use your phone as a wifi hot spot & use your data allowance, if your contract does not allow tethering there a few ways to get round it.

    For my business use I use an EE 4g card, plugged into a complicated router, however I think the original package was EE osprey. you can top as you please depending on data usage. Last top up I did was £30 for 10g, but I had to do some heavy data shifting. £10 top up would be sufficient for normal usage.

    Sorry for your predicament.
    I think you were the guy who was the farm manager ?
    Good luck hunting for another position mate, in any case if a new job brings you better conditions it may be a blessing in disguise .
    Tons of options for wifi internet, dongles relatively inexpensive.
    All the best in the future.

    Not 100% sure but i dont think that model has a port for an external aerial.

    I have the E5332 version which has a small threaded port next to the usb charge socket.

    Yes thanks you are right! Bit confusing, I don't fancy putting anything in a sandwich box to get a signal so need a 3/4G unit with a booster option.

    Think this is what I need http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Unlocked-...id=100005&rk=1&rkt=6&mehot=ag&sd=290964305016
