Are you talking about the Unifi LTE device?

Yeah, the long range LTE thing. Might be handy for you.

I have not used their UISP hardware or software so dunno anything about it, but the device looks like it may be able to take an LTE data plan and give you network access to it just like any ordinary internet. It is EA so there is the risk of it never going prime time and not getting support for long, but if you grab it out of EA you may get it a year before it goes on the main store.

Is there a local internet service provider? My parents live in Alvin and are using a local company called Skynet. (No terminators have shown to date) It’s a bit spendy and slows down some at night when everyone is home, but it’s generally reliable. The other option we were looking at is a Verizon LTE modem with Two directional antennas (you need two for LTE), but like you said the issue is the data cap. The antennas are from Wilson out of San Antonio I believe. I can’t remember what modem we were looking at.
