We highly recommend setting your bandlock appropriately and if you do not know the best bands, we'd recommend setting it to LTE only. See AT commands below.
To change LTE Bands use the following AT Commands
|2||High Frequency band|
|4||High Frequency band|
|5||Typically a voice band with lower bandwidth|
|2+4||This will likely be the fastest for urban environments|
|12||Typically a voice band with lower bandwidth|
|2+4+5+12||This covers all T-Mobile and AT&T bands|
|5+12||This will be best for rural deployments as 850MHz Band 5, and 700MHz Band 12 will reach the farthest distance|
|Reset to Default (All Bands)|
These changes are immediate, and the EP06-A modem will switch without requiring a reset or reboot. You will have to wait 5-10 seconds for the switch over to occur. You should notice the LEDs turn off when the command is issued.
To fetch the current band
This will return
LTE BAND 2, or whichever band you’re connected to.
Set EP06 Modem LTE only
You can change the above command’s param value
WCDMA only or
LTE only. I would recommend leaving it at
Set your TTL to 64 to avoid hotspot bandwidth allocation
If you’re on one of T-Mobile’s unlimited data plans, such as Pink Basic or Pink Max, then you will want to prevent T-Mobile from restricting your tethering speed by setting your time-to-live (TTL) to 64.
Go to Spits Panel > Advance > log into Luci > Network tab > Firewall > Custom > and Add
iptables -t mangle -I POSTROUTING 1 -j TTL --ttl-set 64 to the beginning of the script > click the Restart button.
