Questions: Which LTE Modem, mobile Wi-Fi, and CPE support Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular or other US Carriers?

“I’m interested in buying a 4G LTE Unlocked router that works with my Verizon SIM card, what product do you recommend with my carrier?”

“I would like to know what router I can purchase for my T-Mobile LTE SIM Card.”

We are usually asked about similar questions over the last couple of years? Many people want to buy a LTE modem/MiFi/CPE to use, however, they don’t know which one is supported their carriers’ SIM card. So since there doesn’t seem to be a quick reference guide for figuring out if a particular LTE mobile device will work on a specific carrier’s network, we now give you the guide to do.

How to Choose Mobile Devices for USA Carriers

Now, let us back to the point, which LTE mobile device should you choose if you want to it go with your carrier? If you use the Verizon Wireless’s SIM card, then you should choose the device which support LTE band 2, band 4 and band 13. We now list the LTE band 2 and band 4 supported device at other post.

Then you could choose Huawei E3276s-500 modem, ZTE MF970 mobile Wi-Fi, Huawei B890-66 CPE, or more compatible devices.

If you want to use the LTE mobile device for two or above carriers, the device should support at least one of the LTE bands that each carrier uses. Take Verizon and AT&T for example, the Verizon uses B2/4/13, and the AT&T uses B2/4/17/30, you have to choose a device that supports band 2 or band4.

We now list a lot of devices that support LTE band 2, band 4, band 5, band 28, and band41.
