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, 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 - however require a manual change to one script.
USA Verizon E3372h-510 vzwinternet Direct Verizon Prepaid Unlimited does not work with the modem. The other prepaid plans (15GB and 5GB) work fine. Currently, the unlimited data postpaid plan does not seem to work anymore (might be temporary). 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.
