I haven't done it yet, but I need to arrange something similiar using
bonded 3G for getting better upstream from the narrowboat.

Basic plan would be several multislot devices to get around individual
ERP limits[*], and probably multiple operators (similiar to what the
various train wifi systems do for their upstreams)---companies such as
Icomera handle such arrangements for the transport operators.

As you hint the setup needs a VPN concentrator somewhere to
remultiplex the streams at the other end, and something local to
remultiplex the streams at your end.

antennas would be going on the top of a 10-metre high pneumatic mast
(not 50 millimetres away from my brain):
