F53 Mobile hotspot?

I have a 2023 Baystar 3014 and it has FordPass built in with a cell connection. There is an antenna fin on the roof on the front drivers side it connects to. When I turned FordPass on the app asked if I wanted to enable a mobile hotspot for the RV. It would cost only $20 a month for unlimited data. There were not a lot of details on the site. Im wonders if anyone has used this for their mobile hotspot.

It's only 22GB and then AT&T aggressively throttles it to 128Kbps (not usable). It's also only a 4G modem and is pretty slow at that.

GM offered something different years ago. It was called ATT Mobley. It plugged into the OBDII port on the GM vehicle. Someone started making an OBDII port that was USB powered and sold it on Amazon. We bought one and started the Mobley service, $23.00 a month all in. That was five or six years ago. We plug the USB connector into a USB port in the motorhome and have a 4G unlimited Hotspot.

The same thing was said about the Mobley and that they would throttle it. Six years later, we're still using it and have never seen it get throttled. You don't need 5G to run a hotspot in the coach. As long as we have decent cell service, both my wife and I can play on our laptops and stream movies on TV. The great part, when we travel without the motorhome, we pack it in the car or our luggage. We use it in hotel rooms and while on long drives in the car. My wife likes to play on her Ipad. We even took it on a cruise.

I wouldn't necessarily poo poo it without trying. You can up the bundle on it for more data.
