I was lucky jumping into the Mobley program even before taking delivery of my coach circa 2017. Speeds were never that great even with a Weboost setup but good enough. Thanks to @turbopilot I dumped my WiFi Ranger goAC for a Pepwave BR1 MK2 with LTE-A from https://5gstore.com and have been loving it. In the end of October firmware update they added a TTL override option for cellular per my suggestion and referring them to the video below where I learned of the hotspot detection situation vs. phone and carriers. Here is an example of the speeds I'm getting in a fringe location east of Mesa, AZ in a state park nearly in the middle of nowhere. I don't believe I ever saw speeds like this with the Mobley but I will offer that as times changes so does cellular connectivity so unless I could test side by side I consider it invalid but I am certainly pleased with this kind of connectivity.

For all of my cellular settings (i.e. in both Pepwave devices I use) I do have the TTL enforcement set to 65. Does it work? I have no idea but it doesn't hurt to have it set and I've had it this way for 2-3 months as I beta tested this prior to the end of October official release.

TTL (Time To Live) in my last job was how many routers (hops) the data packets would propagate before dying.
EDIT: Oops! I should have watched the video before I posted.
I looked at the device you're testing at 5gstore.com. They are very proud of the pepwave product you've tested.
I'll have to try this netsh command when using my Netgear Explore.
