I find it impossible to recommend any specific modems because important
firmware features like MBIM depend on both operator branding and
geographical target area.  But I can list the MBIM modems I have:

- Huawei E367 with MBIM firmware. I have no idea whether this is
  available anywhere in the world today.  I know most of the E367s were
  QMI only.  That's of course only a firmware issue, but that doesn't
  help much as long as the firmware isn't available.

- D-Link DWM-156 rev A7.  This might be a safer bet on the cheap side.
  I haven't seen any non MBIM variants for that specific revision.  But
  I wouldn't be suprised if they exist either, so the usual warnings

The  rest of my MBIM modems are mini-PCIe or m.2, and also very

- Ericsson H5321gw (with newer firmware), halfsize mini-PCIe

- Sierra Wireless MC7710 (with newer firmware, depending on cfg),
  fullsize mini-PCIe

- Sierra Wireless EM7345, m.2 (3042)
