This thing is fantastic, and blows everything else I've tried out of the water. HOWEVER now T-Mobile won't connect anymore, and they refuse to "activate" the Pepewave on their network. Nevermind that their SIM card has worked in it for 18 months. So now I have to lose the use of this expen$ive hotrod or $pend more on Verisore or ATT. The Public Utilities Commission will hear about this.

Faster speed with unlimited AT&T plan 100Gbps than Unlimitedville with AT&T - not sure what plan they use.

My antenna only has two connectors, can I still use it with the Peplink MAX BR1 Pro 5G?
