    Most wireless carriers offer a mobile hot spot device now that will usually allow up to 5 users to connect to the same device.

    ATT and Verizon both offer them, there are costs that do apply and i am not sure on the rates you will have to look into that in more depth.

    The specific product jselden73 is talking about is a MiFi and they support between 4 to 8 devices. They work by creating a WiFi, much like you have at home or at work, that the computers and devices can connect to and then from there the Internet traffic would be sent over the cellular network. It wont be good for gaming but for browsing and checking email they work well.
