Florida Internet options

I'm not sure if this belongs in here, but I will be in Florida for a month and the residence I am staying at does not have internet. This is something I will need to stay connected at work. I'm asking to see if I can have internet added for the month, but in absence of that, are mobile internet options available or even better, a portable WIFI so I can connect multiple devices.

I'm driving, so a US wide portable internet would be a great option.

I'm open to suggestion and alternative options. My apologies if this is not the right place for this.

Thanks

Depending on your usage, this should fit your schedule (in Canadian $)

https://roammobility.com/data-plans (say 5 Gb Can$ 60)

But if you drive, there are gaps of no data zones on the highway. Likely you will have to rely on those in the service centres on the road. There are a couple of days of minor inconvenience. Otherwise it is the best option. Tethering to other devices (laptop/netbook/tablet/cell...) will be on 4g or LTE.
BTW there is not much chance for major video download given the limitation in data usage

Rogers ROAM like home would be the easiest, however, they raised the price to $6 per day up to a maximum of 10 days per billing cycle. If you go for a month, the most they can charge you is $120

But I am not sure if your data plan is sufficient for your needs
