I stand corrected! But it still requires you to bring your own hotspot - and the AS docs clearly mention having a 4G LTE router built in.

The Classic does have a 4G router built in.
Service is through AT&T.
Current price is either $25/month for 5GB, or $360/year for unlimited.
The free year is accessed by purchasing a year for $360, then submitting the proper forms to Airstream, who will mail you a check.

Yes we knew that. The question is specifically what router did they use and could it be changed over to Verizon - or even support Verizon and AT&T simultaneously.

A number of these vehicle routers will support multiple LTE modems.

In that case, rather than asking the forum, it would be a better idea to give the people that designed and built it a call, and ask them. Then you can report back, and tell the forum what they said.

Well, I was checking here first to see if either someone had already done so; or someone from AS with knowledge might say something.

A WeBoost 4G-X coupled with a Wilson Flat Plate Indoor Antenna will boost the cell signal for all cell devices without requiring a separate Hotspot. However, if you have device such as an iPad that does not have cell capability then a Hotspot would be required or you could use your phone as the Hotspot. Obviously, pre-2019 information since the technology will be included on the new units. Have no idea what brand of equipment they intend to use.

Two questions to ask:

1. What are data charges in US?
2. What are data charges in Canada?

We recently went to Canada. I have unlimited data Verizon plan in the US. In Canada, best I could do was $20/GB which is not very much.

Our unlimited Verizon plan provided 0.5 GB LTE per phone per day in Canada. Beyond that we were throttled to 3G speed.

AS is providing you with remote access to features on your trailer. the manual does not mention any more devices nor promise anymore. That is why my att unlimited (grandfathered in) may be a better choice if i can swap the sim

My big reason for wondering is - if it's something fairly standard I should be able to switch it over to Verizon instead of AT&T once my year runs out - or better yet I could use both and failover to the better connection.
I called AS and spoke to marketing in Ohio. It only comes with the Classic I was told, and they have no plans for the rest of us. I see this as a great add on. But, ain't happening for non=classic folks.

Hi

I'd bet it's a very conventional hotspot / router like the Netgear device AT&T re-brands. Stick an antenna on it and mount the antenna external to the trailer. There's no need for anything fancier to get done what they are trying to do. The yearly cost sounds a lot like a basic low data use AT&T plan.

That's what I thought at first, but I'm leaning towards what Joshjack suggested that they will use a true mobile router WiFi device dedicated to this job. Czone may be dictating this also as it is their smart RV technology AS is using.

Hi

It's Airstream ( = they are in business to make money) ... what's the lowest cost way to get the job done?

Bob
