I My wife and I have iPhones. We commonly use 2 apps; MiWi, which turns your phone into a 3G hotspot and My3G which permits FaceTime video over 3G (normally restricted to WiFi). These apps require a jailbroken phone.

The internet hotspot created can be by USB tether (to a computer without wifi), Bluetooth or wifi.

Realistically you will not get what you are asking about. The only service that is actually cable speed is 4g. The problem with 4g is that it is only available near/in large cities. It will drop down to 3g or even much slower when you are between cities. Your requirement to have it available when driving may be a deal breaker too. Satellite will provide your needed speed but only works when stationary. Other connections such as park wi-fi and cellular 3g or 4g will bog down with the number of users. Try going to Arizona in the winter and see how fast their networks are! Data limits are just a function of how much you want to pay. If I were you, I would figure out how to do your work only when parked. Another thought is that some parks will allow you to get cable Internet at your site if you stay there all winter. That doesn't help however when you are moving around every week or so.

On some phones if you tether it keeps the phone charged, other wise battery dead no hook-up, simple.

AT&T MiFi works good for me! Can connect up to 5 users but speed with suffer as it is still a cell connection.

I would vote for the Verizon MiFi. If you look at the coverage maps, Verizon has the best coverage in rural areas, all of the major carriers do well in the metro areas. Used my MiFi while traveling from Salt Lake City to Seattle (lots of rural areas in between those 2 cities ). Never lost signal...
