    I'm using a RPi 3 (Stretch) to connect to the internet via a Verizon 4G/LTE USB 'dongle'
    (Pantech UML295) , which presents itself as eth1. On first power up, the Raspberry always hangs at
    'A start job is running for dhcpcd on all interfaces (20s / 1min 42sec)'. At this point, the dongle has a green LED, indicating that a connection has been made, but the Raspberry doesn't respond and the only remedy is a power cycle. Subsequent power cycles (within 10 minutes or so) result in success - the system boots properly and the internet connection is made. I assume there is some 'lease time' in Verizon's network that is allowing it to boot properly the second and subsequent times. But I need it to connect the first time - and every time. Is there something that I could adjust, or some log file that I could access that might tell me what is going on?
