1.Are we allowed to have people come into fix something in the house?

2. We are badly in need of wifi as my wife works online a and in the flat we rented, there is a vodafone modem used by the previous tenant. Can we call them to choose a plan so they can reactivate it for us?

3. Is it possible to open a bank account without going to the bank as we are still I'm quarantine?

Thank you in advance

Yes

We got Lycamobile but there is a cap on the data. We need unlimited data

3. Starling, Monzo "if you have your brp"

Great but not yet as we are still in quarantine. But I don't know if it is possible to pick it up when we go and submit our samples for day 2 or day 8 covid test

You're still in quarantine, so I do not think any company will send a representative to fix anything in your apartment at the moment.


You cannot pick up your brp till Day 11OR when your Day 8 results comes out which may be after Day 11

If you need unlimited data, you probably require a ‘proper’ contract with the providers

The limits for different banks vary.
I spent the equivalent of 66 pounds on a transaction on my Zenith card last week.
Rates too vary, different banks charge different exchange rates, even though I dont think any of the ones I use are close to blackmarket rates.
Zenith and GTB tend to stick closer to the CBN rate, while I think Access and UBA do not.

3 is the best for you.
It's unlimited data is 35 pounds a month, and its network is better than Lycamobile.
EE's tariffs are no way near that.
