4g modem recommendations and provider ; I need occasional reasonably heavy usage, maybe 2-3 days a month when virgin screws up; as they're doing today.

Going to *try* to maintain a list of dead Fediverse instances here: https://fediverse.rip/

There are a ton of them. If you know of a few batch them up in a message to me and I'll add them. If you have the approximate date they died supply that too. If not, I'll try to find the date. :rip:
