We used Island Wifi and were very happy with it. We used 100GB+ per month.

I am a beta for their US service (not yet working at all well), so have a bit more info, maybe...
They went from $100/mo to $75/mo; I subscribed when I last went to Abaco
, and the service was great.
It's pretty tough to abuse their service in that it's truly unlimited - they have double-digit subscribers who use over a terabyte a month, and several into two-digit terabyte use per month.
Aside from not returning (and thus you'd lose your deposit) the unit when you're finished, there's not much opportunity to finagle or abuse, in that the unit is limited to 10 subscribers, whether original or guest.
It uses a different band than the normal cell service, called G5 (which is not 5G); there's less use, so there's no congestion, signal is stronger (no competing with a few hundred on the same band), yada, yada.
That said, it rides on Batelco, so if you're going to the Abacos, Aliv is the game
in most places, they having all their system back up other than some smaller out islands which are coming online as I type. Once BTC is back up, MiFi will again be the game
to attend in Abaco
; for now it's the one to use everywhere else.
Leo (the owner) will ship you one to arrive just before you leave here in the US; it's simpler for anyone other than where there's an actual office in the Bahamas...
YMMV but that's my experience. I wish they had their US system solved
, as I'm tired of the games with T-Mobile...
