Mobile 4g broadband

Answered

I get 2 to 3 bars of 4g reception on my mobile phone at my new house. It has decent speed on my phone - enough to watch movies without buffering etc. 

 

I bought a 4g modem (not the telstra one as the were sold out) - Asus Wi-Fi AC750 and put a telstra 4g mobile broadband SIM in it and it won't pick up any reception. What is the difference? What can I do to make it work? Will adding an external antenna be enough? Thanks

Re: Mobile 4g broadband

The reason the 4G modem is not picking up any signal is because it does not work on all the 4G and 3G bands used by Telstra. The device supports.

 

4G FDD-LTE: 800 /1800 /2100 /2600
4G TDD-LTE: 2600
3G UMTS: 900 /2100

 

It does not support 700MHz one of the main frequencies used by Telstra for 4G in remote locations and it does not support 850 MHz the frequency used by Telstra for 3G.

Thanks, so is there somewhere i can go to figure out which frequency is available in my rural area and assuming it is 700MHz would the Nighthawk M2 work then?

 

Thanks so much
