Do you mean the connect software from Airstream? The Peplink modem firmware is only updatable from Airstream I believe. You don't have any control over that download.
Yesterday, sadly, my AT&T plan ran out. My backup is a grandfathered AT&T hotspot that completely bypasses my Peplink modem and roof antenna. The good news is that it is faster! Where I am in Marion NC, I was getting 27 Mb down with the Airstream equipment. Now with the hotspot, I am getting 47 Mb down. Go figure. My plan is 22 gig/month at $20.
When recently adding a new phone to my plan, AT&T tried to change my hotspot plan. That would have eliminated my grandfathered hotspot plan for a new hotspot plan. Cost? 16 gig/month for $125! I tell you I am waiting for Elon Musk's Starlink plan. I will pay $80/month for guaranteed service even in the remotest areas.
