Need help. Cheap WiFi hotspot option?

Hi guys, so me and my partner are in the middle of moving house. In this transition period of around 2-3 months I am without the internet.

However, in the UK currently Virgin Media UK is offering the following deal:

150 minutes
Unlimited Texts
Unlimited Data, tethering allowed (The important part!)

At just 12, I can tether and don't have to worry about any data limit or throttling.

However I need to purchase a second phone. Can anyone recommend the absolute cheapest option which has the ability for Wi-Fi hotspot?

Does anyone else have experience like this possibly in a similar situation?

Thanks in advance for any help.

It is also important to add. The phone must be able to receive decent data speeds, this is one of the main reasons I'm querying this as I can pick up any random android phone to tether with, but one which has good speeds?
