Question Wineguard Connect 2.0+ Newby Questions

My 2024 Thor Chateau 22E comes with a Wineguard for WiFi access. I need to connect my TV to WiFi for local weather and local news (any dangerous place I should avoid?) and also use it for my computer's online search and my Youtube connection.

I think Wineguard comes with a default service SIM card but don't know if that's enough for me. I talked to T-Mobile, they tried to sell me a mobile plan with 60GB ($60 a month). Does anybody have any experience with Wineguard service and what plan do I need if any?

Also the dealer's service told me Starlink has much better connectivity than those cell tower connectivities, Anybody has experience with it?

Thanks to your advice in advance.

We use an AT&T Prepaid SIM card with 100 GB for $55 a month. Has been working great for us. When you purchase a SIM card be sure and take the IMEI number for the Wineguard with you. We have been able to stream television with the Wineguard in locations where our cellphones would only TEXT and barely had one bar.

There's at least a dozen threads here discussing the ins and outs of the Winegard Connect. Some love it and use it all the time; some have left it for a roof ornament.
