Is APN a feasible Idea?

Hi all,

So I work for a small company that provides Managed Services to about approx. 40 Clients. Each client getting a Forti Firewall, AP's and a LTE Link (Either as main or Back-up) Running through Vodacom Business. We are exploring the possibilty of an APN (Shared or Public, Which ever is Cheaper). At the moment we spend 2TB+ on Data. Our main reason is the pooled data (as some clients abuse where others hardly touch their data).

Our issue with VB is that we are stuck to only their Routers/Dongle Combo. Have no access to the router for config. and support is not the greatest.

Would it be feasible to go the APN Route cost wise with the amount of traffic spend we have?

Do you have an idea of the volume of data that would be used if you tallied up between those who use and those who don't? 2TB on a Vodacom APN will be costly - but if you're actually only using a few hundred GB, and you have the opportunity to firewall the service and limit certain traffic in the failover scenario, it may well work out in your favour.

But we looking for a third party provider who can pool data across multiple networks like RSAWeb ( who has not gotten back to us )
