      Curious because I was in ICU wearing a portable heart monitor and they had no issues with me using my mobile and wireless laptop in the patient's lounge/garden ( although the wireless signal was unprotected from a nearby housing estate)

      It could depend on the equipment being used.

      I would expect more current kit to be suitably shielded from outside interference from mobiles.

      As for WiFi, this is on a different frequency.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms

      I think you would be best getting a 12 month contract in The One Plan and Tether to a laptop etc. Three have just dropped there prices on The One Plan from 25 to 15 per month and you will receive;

      All-You-Can-Eat Data (Tethering Permitted)
      5000 - 3 -to- 3 Minutes
      2000 - Texts
      2000 - Any Network Minutes

      Then just use your free mobile phone to tether to your chosen device....

      Hope this helps but you can't beat that Price Plan IMO

      As it used to be on airplanes right? Thankfully, things are changing!
