I’m looking for a internet solution for my parents who live in the sticks. I have almost a full 4G signal when I’m at their house with no issues (my carrier is T-Mobile), and I get 50gig unrestricted a month, anything over that is potentially throttled depending on tower usage at the time.
That said, I’m looking at something on Amazon like the Dionlink 4G LTE CPE Unlocked 4G Wireless Router with SIM Card Slot, supports AT&T and T-Mobile.
The question in regards to the above Hot Spot device; Do I need a SIM card programmed for Hot Spot or can I use a Phone SIM programmed card, and it can just use the data on the account?
I also asked over on the Amazon product page to see if one of the current product owners could chime in with an answer, but nothing yet.
EDIT: Also, a phone with hot spot turned on, isn’t going to have a very good signal, and will work in a few rooms in their house, and won’t work with the rest. Need a solution that also has at least 1 RJ45 connection.
