My sister's family live in the countryside and ADSL there is extremely slow (0.5Mb.)

I tested my 3G speed there with my Nexus 5 and managed to get a speed of 7.5Mb, and thought that they may be able to use a cheap android phone in conjunction with a Moto G to act as a wireless hotspot for the home.

I know Three's One Plan allows tethering through a phone, but not through a 3G router, or MiFi.

Was wondering wether if it would be better to have a router connect to the Moto G's hotspot, and then for devices to connect to the router as it may send out a better wifi signal around the home?

Would be interested in other's thoughts.

Thanks
