Can I use my NextG sim in my 4G modem and get 4G speeds?

Answered

I have a new (purchased separately) pre-paid NextG sim with some credit on it. Can I use it in a new prepaid 4G wifi modem until the credit is all used up? Will I get full 4G speeds?

Speeds are designated by the device itself not the plan. Not too sure on the workings of prepaid but you may not be able to use an old sim with a new device.

I foresee no problem with that.


Will I get full 4G speeds?


What are “full 4G speeds”?

By full 4G speed, I mean will I be limited to the data rates of the NextG system (for which the sim was purchased)?
