Roaming in the USA no 4G, just H+, what are the APN settings?

Hi,

 

I'm on an EE 4G Max plan which includes roaming in the USA, and I only get H+ upto ~ 5Mbps, whereas in Europe I get proper 4G+. Are there any APN settings I need to set manually?

 

Thanks.

Thank you for the reply @davidka1Smiley Happy

 

I believe @chistery has established the problem, your phone (the OnePlus 3T) does not support the correct frequencies for use in America.

 

Manually roaming is manually selecting a operator from the list of available networks, but it would appear there are no available 4G networks as your phone does not support 4G in America.

 

I hope that helps answer your question. Smiley Happy

Hi @davidka1 you shouldn't have to change anything. What type of phone are you using? Have you tried it in a few different locations?

Hello @davidka1

There's no need to change the APN settings on your phone. It may be you're in an area with no 4G coverage or your phone may not be compatible with the frequencies used by U.S. networks.

 

What phone do you have?

 

Have you attempted to manually roam onto either AT&T or T-Mobile to see if either of these provide 4G coverage?

Hi @Inyourbox

 

Thanks for the very prompt reply. I'm in the middle Manhattan, and all the locals on T-mobile (who I believe is EE's local partner) have full 4G and 4G+.

 

I have an Oneplus 3T. I haven't tried the manually roam, I assume this is where I manually choose a network operator? My choices are "AT&T 3G" or "T-mobile 2G". I'll try both and see what happens.

 

Thanks.

The oneplus 3t Doesn't support 4g in America.

 

See https://willmyphonework.net/ for where it does work.

Unfortunately that does Smiley Happy

 

I didn't realise that the limitation was on the phone ...

Time to buy the OnePlus 5T maybe? Though the 6 will be out in June! 😉
