So here's my setup so far...

AT&T Mobley with the $20 a month Connected Car Unlimited.
https://www.att.com/devices/zte/mobley.html
That will give me at least 22GB of data.

I purchased this adapter so I could plug the mobley device into a regular outlet

I opted to do for the AC adapter as the usb ones had bad reviews.

Then I have 16GB of data on my Verizon Plan.

Also, wifi at our first location for 30 days. Not sure how it will be though. Wish me luck.

There is a starbucks across the way from the park so wondering if I might be able to hook up onto their signal if needed...

Does anyone think it's worth having a wifi extender? And is there one you recommend?

Thanks!

We are moving into an RV next week so excited for the adventure!

Will be interested to know how well it works for you.

Well when I just purchased mine this past week it states this when checking out...

Connected Car Unlimited
Access to AT&T nationwide 4G LTE network. All data plans include unlimited usage on the entire national AT&T Wi-Fi HotSpot network.

After 22GB of data usage, AT&T may slow speeds


So it's truly not unlimited. But after research people haven't had any problems when they go over. I will be sure to let everyone know because I'll probably go over quickly with my business.

If there's no limit on the amount of data that can be transferred with the plan, how is that not "unlimited"? True, there may be short periods when that data will not transfer as fast as you might like, but that's still not a limit on the amount of data transferred.

I've been thrilled with mine so far, with speeds mostly in the 3-10+ Mbps range, occasionally in the 1-2 range. We have had times when we didn't have AT&T coverage (or it's been so slow as to be virtually unusable) and had to fall back on our 3G Verizon mifi. Regretfully, one of the places we don't have AT&T coverage is at home, complete AT&T black hole or I would drop our Cox cable like a hot rock.

We have 3 granddaughters helping us use data and are at 51GB with Moberly right now. We seem.to get 3G about 60% of the time and are sitting across the Hudson from  Manhattan. A speed test  last night at 8:30PM showed 3.2MPS. Until we got here I hadn't noticed any speed restrictions.

Our Mobley speeds have typically been in the 20-30Mbps range, but we've also seen it drop to 3-5Mbps in some areas. So far, we've yet to be anywhere with no AT&T service, but I'm sure our Max Amp RV cell booster is responsible for some of that success.
