I currently have a Liberty 25 plan – 25 MB and then limited to available bandwidth.
Additionally I have local DSL at about 2.5 MBPS, essentially unlimited.
I have a multi-WAN router – it can ‘multiplex’ up to five ISP signals at once and split the Internet traffic across those ports based on demand. Only two are in use as mentioned above.
Each month I routinely use 70 to 90 Megabytes of data. These figures come from the router and very closely match the ViaSat and DSL metrics provided by those vendors.
As an unexpected bonus, I have not had an outage for almost a year – if the DSL is down then ViaSat takes over and visa versa. For redundancy, this setup cannot be beat.
AT&T just put in a new tower nearby and they have a data plan that goes to 100 M of data for reasonable cost – about $62/month including tax and license.
Like everyone else, I need more bandwidth. I am not interested in movie streaming but do have reasonable interactions with various investment web sites. That is what seems to be driving the data high usage. The internal network has seven Windows computers, five Android tablets and various other dogs and cats like Alexa and TV and DVD microcode updates occasionally and all need to be updated periodically.
Can anyone help with suggestions that includes whatever devices are needed to connect to the AT&T cell network and bridge that connection to my internal network? As I understand it the solution needs to have some type of bridge from the AT&T hotspot to my internal network.
