B1300 Convexa Mesh Router $100.18 (Normal $125.34)
As far as I'm aware this is the only MESH system that runs on OpenWRT and yet still runs the underlying technology of all the other available MESH systems - Qualcomm WiFi SON. Because it's OpenWRT based you can play with the firmware using the OpenWRT repository to customise your install (OpenVPN/Wireguard, Adblock, MWan3, Transmission ). You can run either Gl.iNet's firmware, clean OpenWRT or Rooter however I believe that you'll get the best performance from Gl.iNet's own firmware because of the vendor network drivers compared to open source ones (and I'm not sure what happens with MESH if you don't use the Gl.iNet firmware probably have to install B.A.T.M.A.N ).
Has the same web based GUI as all their other products (with access to native Luci) and for remote management they also have a web based management platform; Goodcloud which even allows you to create a remote site SDN quite easily

Spitz X-750 4G LTE router $169.60 (Normal $212)
This unit is preconfigured with the Quectel EP06-E (Cat 6 support) mini-PCIe LTE modem card (you can swap out with other mini-PCIe cards however you will have to diassemble, be VERY careful with the uFL connectors (don't ask me how I know 😉) and void your warranty. May be useful if you need to change bands/country)
The EP06-E has band support for all the Aussie Telcos: FDD LTE: B1/B3/B5/B7/B8/B20/B28/B32 TDD LTE: B38/B40/B41 WCDMA: B1/B3/B5/B8 (yes even the "illusive" band 28 (700Mhz) 😁 )
No internal battery option but you can run off an appropriate power bank/car adapter (12v/1.5A) with the appropriate connector cable (USB A to barrel connector)
2 external 5 DBi LTE antenna with standard SMA connectors so you can easily replace the antennae if required. 2 DBi WiFi antennae are internal.
Does everything the other GL.iNet range do so can still be used in a WISP repeater situation but with the inclusion of the build in 4G LTE modem for connectivity.
Note: This prebuilt configuration does NOT include the optional Built-in Bluetooth or Zigbee Module
