Tested LTE CPE Devices


Other than the NMU LTE CPE's (Customer Premises Equipment) available for purchase from Micro Repair, current NMU faculty, staff, students, and retirees have another alternative to access NMU LTE. NMU has extensively tested several LTE CPEs available at Amazon and similar vendors. The following specific models have been tested and verified to work well on the NMU LTE network. These LTE CPE's can provided Internet access via NMU LTE to any WiFi capable device such as computers, tablets, smartphones, and other devices.
 

  1. Users should not be picking and purchases their own devices. Just because a product says LTE, does not mean it will work on the NMU LTE system. CPE must operate in the correct frequency band and support the correct bandwidth and duplex. NMU recommends sticking to the tested products listed below.
  2. Should individuals purchase their own devices, they would need to obtain a NMU SIM card from Micro Repair. SIM cards are currently available at a cost of $5.
  3. It is IMPORTANT to order the exact model number and that the description references the device is unlocked.
  4. The links provided were from what was currently available. You can purchase from ebay, amazon, or other suppliers. Just note that ebay.com is usually the best price.
  5. THESE CPEs HAVE BEEN TESTED BUT NOT GUARANTEED TO WORK. NMU PROVIDES VERY LIMITED SUPPORT FOR THESE CPEs.
