Totally with you on that. However, before I fork over cash, I want to see/hear of results. I have Altice and they suck with a capital SLURP.

Yes, agreed
I am waiting for a hard announcement on the dates of availability here.
I plan to build a tower for an unobstructed LOS for my dish.
Fully understanding that weather will be a factor.
I have had an Altice hotspot and I have been happy with it until this year.
I have had Claro in my apartments and when I had a fiber optics connection I was very happy.
Since I moved from that location I have not been happy with the speed of the service I received.
And I have not been happy with the customer service or technical fixes of the the service problems reported.
Maybe a little competition will get their attention.
If there are enough defections from their subscriber pool.

I suspect that it will be better than most options but not as good or cost-effective as one might dream but if you cannot get a fibre optic connection it may well be the best bet.
