More unusually - MoFi routers can also USB tether via iOS or Android powered phones as well. MoFi actually pioneered iOS tethering - offering it as an optional feature (it required special firmware on the 3500-3GN) long before WiFiRanger added it.
And for those who want integrated cellular capability, higher end variants of the MoFi 4500 even come with a cellular modem built right in - similar to the Pepwave MAX BR1, but at substantially less cost.
All the key software features seem to be there - including relatively clunky WiFi-as-WAN capability to share a remote WiFi network, automatic failover to the best connection, and bandwidth usage tracking.
