    I don't know how to connect internet via USB, but can you hotspot? If your plan requires you to pay extra for hotspot or you don't have that capability, you can root your phone and install a root wifi tether app. Of course, I am only knowing this method for Android. If you are running an Ubuntu distro, I can tell you how to get it mounted. I've never done the internet via USB though as I just hotspot with my 4G.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    What kind of computer are you using - laptop, or tablet? For Linux laptops and netbooks, you generally use the standard usb/serial PPP interface. It doesn't care what the modem is (CDMA, 3G, 4G, LTE), just that it appears like a serial modem. Tablets? It depends (lack of experience on my part). For an Android tablet, the PPP interface may work, since Android is basically a Linux system.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
