    Hello all, first time I’ve logged onto Bit-Tech in about ten years. The last time I was here it was all talk about cheesecake and the GeForce 8800 was new. Heady days.

    Looking for some advice re 4G modems; I understand the basic premise, but I’m a little unsure re SIM cards. Does a 4G modem use up your tethering allowance or your regular data allowance?

    Also, if you have any suggestions re a permanent outdoor modems for rural locations, do let me know.

    Depends on your tariff, but generally any 'home broadband' sort of use will hit your tethering allowance, or possibly just be insta-throttled, without the right tariff.

    I use LTE as my primary broadband, as it happens just recently posted a brain dump on it.

    It's definitely workable, but lots of caveats. On the plus side I've worked through most of them so you don't have to :thumb:
