Recently, I was looking for a solution to share my LTE USB modem connection to the rPi's LAN port. I've searched for hours for a solution with no luck. Others just recommended me to buy an LTE router. Thanks, no. Then a fantastic guy on Stackexchange helped me a lot. And the solution was born. In my case I am going to connect rPi LAN port with my Unify USG secondary port to use rPi as a LTE failover connection.

This looks cool!
However for me , I live in the countryside and a regular USB based LTE 4G stick just wont get good reception, we have to use a Mimo antenna , with that said our government has provided a rural service that all ISP's can resell they all supply a Huwei B315 router and the sim card is locked to this device and you cannot use the sim card in another device so im stuck with the B315, however i hooked that up to WAN2 and i get aboput 60~90 Down and 50 Up with 19ms Latency so thats very good compared to my VDSL , i now loadbalance with 90% weighted to the WAN2 LTE connection and its brilliant.
You can get the router here for liek 40 bucks so its so much less hassle than building a rPI for me.
Hoever the tinker factor looks great and keen to see your progress

In our country we have an operator with 20€ unlimited data&voice, download rate is about 40/40. the only reason why I not bought an LTE router is the fact, that I already own the rPi. Plus I have more control over everything (limit traffic, speed, filter/block services).
In overall LTE services are pretty good as failover solution. The only downside that from my LTE ISP I get only NATed address.
