Re: PagePlus Throttling

Searched the posts and can't find any specific advice. Have been running Mofi 4500 with PagePlus > 1 year now. Verizon is only available carrier in my area. Usually get 30-50mbps without much difficulty. Just yesterday started getting throttled to 3 mbps down and 300k up. Pulled the sim card out an...

Re: People using LTE that have other options?

Those who need internet for business can tell you that cable companies charge an arm and leg for it (actually both arms and legs). Intro offer starts at around $80/month and after a year it's well above $100/month. Plus they nickel and dime you for their modem/router (aka piece of crap), so you get ...

Re: Anybody using sub6 LAA Band46 B46 5200MHz ?

LAA band 46 seems to be used by ATT in certain areas only, at least for now. I have locked both my phone and modem to band 46 alone, but there was no signal at all. Here are the bands currently used by US carriers. 4G-LTE (* = Primary bands) ATT = *2, 4, 5, 12, 14, 17, 29, 30, 46, 66 TMO = 2, *4, 5,...

Re: we826GO-U, quectel EC25-AF can't get on t-mobile

i have now tried the sprint apn's. Same error. I am pretty confident that I need to use the t-mobile apn as the sim is t-mobile and the iPhone 6 it came out of was configured to use the t-mobile apn. the plan is sprint, but I have been migrated to the t-mobile network because sprint is so bad at my...

Re: Anyway to pull in this band?

Slightly older post but figured I would ask. Anyone know if this will work with amplifi hd mesh network? As long as the main mesh unit is OpenWRT/GoldenOrb flashable, and has a usb port, then yes (without a usb port you could tether the phone to the router via WiFi). If it's not flashable, then you...

Re: PagePlus & non-VoLTE devices

I'm currently running a Mofi4500 SIM4 with PagePlus. All of which seems to be working perfectly thanks to the sage advice on this forum. When I initially activated the PagePlus SIM, I did so using my iPhone 6S Plus. One thing I've noticed; however, is that once I put the SIM into the Mofi, I start ...

Re: Issues Moving from Verizon Pre to Post Paid

I have a couple of Visible test accounts. Noticed one of the them would hit 20-30mbps and then drop right down to 5mbps. Got on Visible chat and explained that I could hit 20-30 but was automatically throttled back to 5. After about 10 minutes, a restart and was back to getting full speed. Seems th...

Re: Issues Moving from Verizon Pre to Post Paid

Well...Yipzy was correct. Sierra modems(well at least the 7455) is blocked from use on a post paid phone plan. If anyone needs to know how to get the phone line working again you have to speak with the Tier 2 techs via customer support and ask them to perform a re-provisioning on their end. They'll...

Re: Mofi and PagePlus question

To follow up on the above-I made progress last night and found that PPC had activated a different SIM than what was in the router. So that is back on track to be on the network and operational. I am still very curious about the TTL settings though, and how those are working out for people? From wha...
