I'm at a loss to understand why Apple has not yet offered a cellular data modem option for the MacBook Pros. One where the cellular data plan could be turned on and off, on a month to month basis, as on an iPad.Yeah, I know, Ron and I being advocates for the iPad Pro as on the go computers and then both going back to laptops seems hypocritical. I think I've been pretty clear tho: for me the iPad Pro is a light duty but full featured content creation machine. It can't play Diablo or do Lightroom Classic, but it does everything else I need professionally plus entertainment wise, PLUS 5G in a highly portable package.
Some major Wintel laptop makers have offered such modems (the hardware, anyway – not sure about the plan) for several years. Yes, there are other options (such as carrying around a smartphone set up to act as a WiFi hot spot), but this seems like one that would be a natural for Mac laptops, even if only some people chose it.
