Known Working Mobile Carriers and Settings
The following list of carriers are confirmed to work with the 4G/LTE softmod (based on user feedback).

|Austria||bob (A1 Telekom Austria)||E3372h-153, E3372h-607||bob.at||?|
|Czech Republic||O2||E3372h-153, E3372h-607||internet||Relayed|

|France||Orange||E3372h-153, E3372h-607||orange.fr / orange||Direct|
|Germany||T-Mobile||E3372h-153, E3372h-607||internet.t-d1.de||Direct||"internet.t-d1.de" is a non-standard APN which assigns a Public IP to the end-user device. According to T-Mobile this should only be used for testing purposes. However, this is the only way to get a direct connection with the softmod on T-Mobile Germany.|
|Greece||WIND Hellas||E3372h-153, E3372h-607||gint.b-online.gr||?|
|Hungary||Magyar Telekom||E3372h-153, E3372h-607||internet.telekom||Direct|
|Italy||Vodafone||E3372h-153, E3372h-607||web.omnitel.it||Direct||this APN should give you a Public IP which helps in getting a direct connection. Other APNs like mobile.vodafone.it might not.|
|Latvia||Tele2||E3372h-153, E3372h-607||mobileinternet.tele2.lv||Direct||the tethering device will most likely use internet.tele2.lv as APN, which is different from the modem - however that is fine. It seems only when using the two different APNs for the USB modem and the tethering device, you will get a direct connection.|
|Switzerland||Swisscom||E3372h-153, E3372h-607||gprs.swisscom.ch||Relayed||Prepaid's Upload speed is limited to 2 MBit/s, which is too low. Rather go for postpaid and the "Multi Device" option for a second SIM card.|
|Switzerland||Swisscom||E3372h-153, E3372h-607||corporate.swisscom.ch APN User: testprofil and APN Password: temporary||Direct||For the APN corporate.swisscom.ch, one need to ask Swisscom to enable CAA (Corporate Application Access) on the subscription (cost CHF 5.-/month). This is only required for one of the two SIM cards to get a Direct connection.|
|Turkey||Turkcell||E3372h-153, E3372h-607||mgb / internet||Direct|
|USA||AT&T||E3372h-510||various||Relayed (tbc)||The majority of users have not been able to get an acceptable connection with AT&T and have verified LTE and strong signals.|
|USA||Sprint||n/a||n/a||n/a||None of the LTE bands used by Sprint USA are supported by Huawei modems which work with the 4G/LTE softmod.|
|USA||T-Mobile||E3372h-510, E3276s-505, MS2372h-517||fast.t-mobile.com, epc.tmobile.com||Direct||T-Mobile One Unlimited and One Plus plan have been found to work well. Seems you must be using one of these two top-tier plans for acceptable throughput/performance. T-Mobile imposes a bandwidth cap to tethering data depending on your plan. Make sure the full speed is unlocked or run a speed test if in doubt.
Users have reported better performance with Binge On being disabled.
In certain regions of the US, T-Mobile predominantly supports LTE Band 12 (700 MHz). There is no Huawei E3372 model that supports Band 12. However, the Huawei E3276s-505 and the MS2372h-517 both support LTE Band 12 and work fine with the 4G softmod.
|USA||Verizon||E3372h-510||vzwinternet||Direct||Verizon data only postpaid works great. To enable the SIM card, insert it into a Verizon-approved device (e.g. old phone) and provide them the IMEI number of that device. Once the SIM is enabled, you can use it on the Huawei modem.|
