Three options for you:

I am looking for suggestions on a decent (business
grade) router with 3G
capability an external antenna connection.
At each site, the equipment sits in a rack, inside a hut and signal
strength is reasonable (3/5).
I've had good success with Netcomm units. This one might be appropriate if
you have a rack shelf. They're not cheap though:
Two years ago I did broadband drive testing with a trunk-mounted Netcomm
unit and was able to keep data at megabits per second in places my phone
had no signal at all.
I have a fair number of Robustel R3000 units deployed at remote sites for
SCADA, OOB network management, and weather monitoring:
In the case of the Netcomm units they're on a virtual private APN, and I
push a /24 of my own 1918 address space to each. And the dual-SIM thing
really works, and can be a lifesaver.
I also have a pair of Mikrotiks with the Sierra LTE mini-pcie card as sold
by Go Wifi, they seem to work but I have not deployed them yet so I can't
