Internet in rental property

Recommended Posts

Maybe most stupid question but going into rented from Monday for first time ever for a short while (always home owner)

How do I set up internet for my laptop.

I don't really want a phone line

How does it work any good recommendations  ?

Obviously I have my mobile but want to use my laptop as well

Your problem is the short term nature of the let. You could piggyback of your phone's 4G dependant on your contract but could prove expensive. Could you transfer your existing provider to your temp let?

Virgin don't but their contracts are a minimum of 12 months that's why if you can transfer your existing provider its best. Are you likely to return to your previous address if so that would help if not then your between a rock and a hard place. This is one of the issues with internet providers to the rental sector that they don't recognise the 6 month nature of lets which never gets discussed
