If you have a smartphone you can create a wifi hotspot.

"He doesn't have wifi either"

 

Your son also has a cable provider with a modem but no WIFI router?

Does your son have wired internet at his home?  You can get a wirless router and hook it up between his computer and his wired modem and you will then have access to his internet through the wireless router.

 

That would be the best way to go but since you didn't state weather he has internet access at all makes it difficult to give you good suggestions.
