Walmart. Buy a AT&T temp phone for I think $69, a Sim card for I think $10 and then buy a prepaid, unlimited data card for $65/mo. The phone cost and sim card is a one time fee. Then you pay the $65/mo. for unlimited data as you need it. I believe I got the cost right but it may vary a little depending on the options you choose. But here's the deal. Once you buy these 3 things you can use them as you need them. So lets say you bought them but now you don't need them for awhile. You keep the phone and stash it away. Then lets say you need internet service again in 6 months or so. Go back to Walmart, buy another new sim card for $10 to replace the original one, then a new prepaid data card for $65 for another months worth of unlimited data service. This is also a great way to have a back up internet service in areas where your normal internet provider doesn't cover your area. It's really a great deal for a temporary service. Go to Walmart and find out the latest details.
I learned this tip from a guy who runs a youtube channel when he was in Maine where internet service can be tough to get out in the wilderness. He's got some great tips for FTers on his channel.
