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.
