Does such a thing exist? Ideally, I'd like a 4G device I can take on the road for casual use (i.e. no monthly contract/renewal at this point), that retains a static IP address, thanks.

No that I am aware of on any consumer offering.

 

 

 

Dynamic DNS services would be your best bet.

Why do you need a static IP?  Running a server?

 

You'd be best off with a VPN to someone who will give you a public IP, or something like https://ngrok.com/.

Stick a software VPN router in your VPC.  I use vyatta (with one of the community AMIs) as an openvpn server.

i'd still a ovpn node on the aws server, bounce off that while on the road.

 

 

 

alternative options will be pricey and not prepaid.
