Can your mobile operator boost data for one month?
Or what about this (you'll need to do your own research as it is woo waaaaah whaaay)

Is your phone unlocked? 3 mobile do a one month unlimited data/unlimited mins/unlimited texts for £26.

You could take that for a month and tether to it.

I'll be using around 10GB an hour. So unlimited is the plan.

Giffgaff have an always on unlimited data plan for £25. You only need to take it for one month at a time. After 20gb as used though your speed is reduced to 384kbs which might be too slow

I would have thought you'd need to watch 3 x 1080p movies at the same time to get near 10g per hour

The 3 plan that London mentioned is unrestricted in the UK. Restricted after 19gb aboard.

But yeah that's a lot of data to be pumping an hour on holiday.

They reckon a 4k stream consumes 7g an hour.
