If the AT&T device isn't 28 capable, you might have some problems..  the band list you give, doesn't include some of the common 5G (n) bands either..

Too many devices, probably an addict 🙂 also a tinkerer and developer of stuff..
Not with Telstra, just another customer like you!

Re: Netgear m5

Provided the AT&T device uses the same 'bands' that Telstra uses, it should be fine..

 

Best way yo find out is to try a SIM in it.. a 5G one might only work at 4G though as the rollout is still in progress..  so if you have a SIM handy, pop it in and see what happens..  if you need to buy one, maybe take the device to a store and try it before handing over your hard earned for something that won't work?

Hi,

Thanks for the response. When I asked the question of AT&T their response included the following

"It should work with other carriers as long as the bands compatible with this hotspot match the ones of the carrier you will be using. 
MR5100 bands: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12, 14, 17, 29, 30, 46, 66. "

Do you know how to find the bands Telstra uses?
