Plusnet SIM in a 4G Router

I have a Plusnet SIM at the moment in an iPhone. It is used as a "backup phone" and is in fact rarely used.

Could I take the SIM out of the phone and put it in a 4G router so the family could use it when we are away in our caravan or would this break the terms and conditions?

@QuantumGuy 

From a quick scan  I can't see anything here that suggests that you can't https://www.plus.net/help/legal/mobile-terms/

If you look at it logically it's no different tto turning your Iphone Hot Spot option on and using that to provide data to other devices. I do not use Plusnet for mobile but I do exactly that to give me WiFi access on my IPad etc whenever I am away.

Re: Plusnet SIM in a 4G Router

I was thinking of getting one of these to put the SIM

I have done a quick search and not found any settings for a Plusnet Sim in one of these - a GiffGaff seems works fine it seems.

 

Anyone had any experience with something like this?

I used an EE Osprey Box which was unlocked from EE to use on PlusNet

They can be purchased from EBay for around £20 and the unlocking code also from Ebay is 99p

Works very well when on holiday

You may have to input the APN settings. You will find them here. https://www.plus.net/help/mobile/mobile-phone-and-voicemail-settings/?_ga=2.211336597.1813981684.165...
