We live in a rural location that is not served by any internet provider except for satellite. I have tried many different means for internet like trying to use our data plans by tethering or using their hot spots. It worked but was a nuisance. My last try at internet was using Visible service by tethering their cell phone to an Asus router. This would have been a good method had Visible been a reliable ISP. In our area Visible is a terrible, awful, unreliable choice for an ISP.
We bit the bullet and bought a MOFI router that accepts a sim card. Through a reseller, I bought an unlimited AT&T sim card data package. The MOFI has been great! Never a hiccup. Unfortunately, We have not been able to take it on a trip in our motor home. The Covid-19 outbreak caused us to temporarily cancel our travel plans. We are limiting contact w/outsiders because of our age.
We are running the MOFI inside off its antennas. I have sufficient bandwidth usually to stream and operate 2 laptops, but sometimes it will slow down.
I want to install 2 MIMO antennas outside to try to increase the MOFI's signal. I think I'll dig out the ASUS router and run ethernet from the MOFI to it.

GotW3 w/ATT sim & T-Mobile phones

Wife and I have been full-timing for a few months. I am fortunate to be able to work from the road. Stable broadband is absolutely critical for my employment. Here's how we roll:

2 - One Plus 6T unlocked cell phones on T-Mobile 55+ plan. Unlimited data (50 GB high speed then throttled) Netflix included, MLB included. Grand total is $70.00 for both lines (no fees, no taxes, no bs) just $70.00 per month.
I bought these phones directly from One Plus as they include a Dual SIM tray which you won't get on a carrier phone. My thinking was that I may need to get/use a Verizon SIM depending on where we ended up in the country. So far I haven't needed to worry about Verizon.

1 - ReadyNet LTE520 router with an ATT SIM Card. I have service through GotW3 at $99.00 per month for unlimited high speed data. (T-Mobile is an option at $79.00 per month but I already have T-Mo plan for my cell phones) Again, this is the TOTAL cost, no taxes, no fees, no data limits. This is a really nice router. Built in WiFi, 4 ethernet ports, 2 Voip ports, failover capable, external antenna options, DC power cable option.

We have been through IL, MO, AR, TX, NM, CO, AZ, and KS so far since mid-November 2019 and this combo has not let me down. Work is my primary concern but I have had no issues streaming SlingTV, Netflix & Pluto TV in the evenings. I am writing this from just outside Smoky Mountain National Park at Up The Creek RV park in Pigeon Forge TN. ATT Sim in the ReadyNet router is running 35 MB down & 28 MB up. T-Mobile phones are running 67 MB down & 10 MB up.

My T-Mobile cell service has been WAY above what I expected when we hit the road.

full disclosure - The company I work for is a distributor for the GotW3 service. I actually use what I sell.

Hope this helps.
