We need to wait 5 days for internet to be connected at our new house. I somehow thought it could be "switched on" immediately. My partner needs internet access on his laptop for work. What's the best option - can you buy datq cards to use?

Fastest way, if you have smart phone is to use it's tethering/portable hotspot. The laptop just needs WiFi capability to do this, and it uses the phones mobile data. 

 

Alternatively, we sell a Pocket WiFi device that does the same thing, or a Vodem, which plugs directly into a computer via USB to provide an internet connect via our mobile network. The Pocket WiFi is generally a better option as you can connect multiple devices at once.

I ordered unlimited broadband and Sky and Vodafone said 3rd October will be the connection date

My family is one sad Vodafone customer.
