NetGear device for broadband via LTE SIM card with POE connectivity.

Lowest price ever according to C3.

I plan to use this for WAN failover on my Ubiquiti UDM-Pro for when FiOS goes out. I just have to find the right LTE plan to minimize monthly costs to keep the SIM active.

Sweet idea. Do you know how you will switch from regular modem to this when the regular modem loses connection?

My Ubiquiti router has the secondary WAN input built in and controls the failover after it detects the main connection is down.

Hmm, I think my router is 2017-ish but does not seem to have this ability, at least not from what I'm reading.

TP-Link Safestream routers support multiple WAN. I have 3 of these Netgear routers with ATT hooked to it and have had a 4th WISP connection. I have the TL-ER6120, but have used the TL-ER6020 and it works great too.

Some of the 10/100 ones are $35-40 ish.

Essentially any of the first 4 ports can be WAN ports and it supports multiple failover and balancing options.

Would you use this router as your main router and then use a WiFi router as an access point? This is $56 and seems like it would work that way... https://www.amazon.com/SafeStream...B007B60SCG

I think you are talking about something else. You seem to be referring to the ability for many phones to compensate for weak wifi by utilizing LTE.

This has NOTHING to do with the Unifi Gateways ability to fail over to a backup WAN connection, and very, very few consumer routers have that functionality.

Interesting concept for home and work. My USG (work) and pfsense (home) shoukd be able to handle a simple ruleset like this.

The problem will be the cost benefit of holding a monthly data plan that will charge me something marginal month by month and still won't kill my budget when usage goes up during an outage event.

Would love to know what people are doing for cheap LTE plans.

Yes, I have the 4 WAN ports, and the LAN port runs to the Wifi router. I disabled the DHCP on the WIFI router (just using them as access points) so I could direct traffic to a particular WAN if I wanted to on the Safestream.
