I have giffgaff on my phone and I pay £6 per month but limited data etc but can't rely on phone all the time for broadband, so I need to keep phone to have broadband at home?

It depends on your line. Sky for example can offer only broadband without phone line. Have you done broadband comparison? You'll save a lot there. Also, of you go via Quidco, you'll get cashback for new connections (around £100-200 cashback).

ok then have a look at vodafone broadband. Looks like 31 quid. Phone line included and unlimited phone calls and fast broadband. 2 year contract.

If you are getting universal credit the VOXI (part of Vodaphone ) are doing an offer of a sim only deal with unlimited downloads and calls for just 10 quid a month. offer ends at the end of this month.

hot spot from your phone.
I like this.

@ontheline If you have good phone reception in your area (you can download free apps 'OpenSignal' and 'Network Cell Info Lite' on your phone to check reception, download speeds, etc.) and hot spotting off a phone doesn't work for you, then purchase a 4G LTE router. I've just had to set up and configure a couple of the RUTX routers for work. Whilst the RUTX-11 and RUTX-12 are definitely way more expensive than you'd need as they are hardened businesses routers, their are much cheaper options out on the market. Something like this: TP Link AC750 Dual-Band Wi-Fi 4G Router should do you.
