Anyone have experience with hotspots? Hotspot gateways?

Currently my internet is distributed my my ISP's cable modem to my Netgear router.

My ISP is total shit and I am switching to Verizon wireless. So, what do I need to connect the wireless signal to my router? I want to keep my existing network as it connects desktops, printer and TV and broadcasts wirelessly to family laptops etc.

Answering my own question here, it seems an LTE modem is the answer. It will simply replace the cable modem and everything else should continue to function as currently.
