It matters for audio too. Anything real time, essentially. But it won’t be unusable. It should be fine. If you can tolerate WhatsApp calls over regular 4G from your phone, or just don’t notice problems jitter cause, it’ll be just fine.
Where you will start to notice problems to that effect though will be conference calls. WFH meetings on zoom and such.
A router will be able to handle more clients and manage them better (an iPhone will only let up to 5 other devices connect) as well spread the signal throughout more of your home. You’ll still be restricted to the speed and quality of your reception though, so it’s a good stress test before considering whether or not to proceed. The actual 4G service itself is more likely to bottleneck before the density of your home network environment does.
I got the router and antenna sperately too. From Amazon if I remember correctly.
We have unlimited data sim on EE. We moved our personal sims over to them too which meant we could negotiate a much lower price due to having 3 contracts.
EE allow you to gift 100GB of data from your unlimited sim too. So we cut our personal sims right down to the lowest tarrif and we each have 50GB of “free” data each month.

That’s interesting. We currently spend about £45pm for our two Smarty SIMs and Vodafone broadband (the broadband will go up in March). I’d looked at EE, but it looked to be expensive, but hadn’t thought about spreading the data.
