I assume you're talking about sim cards

My bad, did not make that clear. Meant what model modem card(s) have you used with success on AT&T plan.
oh, then in that case I've used the MC7455 and EM7565 with AT&T no issues.

Re: WE826 VS M2M NEXG H721 VS USB enclosure

If you are really serious about your network, then I would highly recommend running separate dedicated access point(s) and a dedicated router/4G modem. All modern 802.11 wifi standards have MIMO, and the latest use beamforming. Beamforming is dependent upon the client as well, and most don't support...

That's what I thought. So then, Verizon allows Pixel devices to have CA even when they are on a MVNO, but not other devices?
I don't know the exact situation here, but I have a Verizon Samsung S8 and I get 3xCA no problem.

Re: Looking for the best setup for my rural area

Will do! Thanks again for the help! My last question would be, any recommendations for LMR400 and where to find it? Trusting amazon is iffy, and Id rather buy the bulk cable (50ish feet) with my own connectors so I can make custom length runs if needed. I guess I could just order one 50ft and the c...

Re: LTE Carrier Aggregation

CA is entirely controlled by the carrier, but you can limit your modem to only certain bands, but if they aren't available on the tower side theres nothing you can do about that.

Re: Looking for the best setup for my rural area

Maybe they meant a 100x increase in signal strength? That would be 20dbm, which I think could be possible. Like I said before, forget the signal booster and just setup a connection for your internet, and use wifi calling. The problem with high gain antennas is they are very directional. If you don't...

Re: Looking for the best setup for my rural area

That's what I figured on the cable - I considered doing everything in one of the roof mounted enclosures like it sounds like you did but honestly got lost on what PCBs and APs and everything needed. Lol just learning one thing at a time right now. My main concern was even outside the signal is weak...

Re: Looking for the best setup for my rural area

Also worth mentioning, I'm considering doing something like a conventional gigabit router or mesh home network for the wifi, but if I could get a very strong router combo, I'd much rather have just a single device. In this case, would it be better to just use a M.2 to USB 3.0 enclosure vs something...

Re: WE826 T2...EM7565.....SLOOOWWWW! on both AT&T and Verizon

I'm confused, that looks like 41.6mbps down, and 11.9mbps up?

Re: Looking for the best setup for my rural area

I'm not sure what you mean by signal booster when talking about the various Sierra modems? I assume you mean for cell service? If so, you can just use wifi calling, once you get a better 4G setup for your internet. If you are going to use AT&T I'd recommend spending the extra 50 bucks and getting th...
