internet in the box

If you have the luxury of running copper, you have some options.  In my
experience, its often difficult to do so without paying the house's labor
at a convention center.  This may necessitate a distributed solution with
just several individual cradlepoint routers dropped throughout the coverage
area wherever you find power.

Otherwise, what you say above should work, as long as the required NAT
implementation on the cradlepoint to do the 3x load balancing doesn't die
under load.  I've only tried up to about a bus-load of people on a single
unit, which worked fine.  (FYI -- with 1x modem per cradlepoint, they have
a way to pass the public IP to the Cisco 2900 via DHCP pass-thru and not
run NAT on the cradlepoint).

Finally, Cisco also sells a 4g LTE expansion card.
