Using LTE Devices
Tested with Samsung Galaxy S3, but probably works with other Android smartphones too.
Connect your Android smartphone to the router's USB port using a USB cable, and enable the USB sharing.
Define DHCP -client LTE (number) into the Mikrotik. Wait for a moment for Mikrotik to get an IP address from the smartphone.
Add Interfaces -> LTE (number) as the default router.
Now configure DHCP Client for the LTE interface.
