Microtek 4G LTE Internet w/ ATT sim card

 My internet provider in rural East Texas sold to another company. I had unlimited data streaming using their Microtek r11e-4G dish that had an ATT SIM card installed. Can I get the SIM card reactivated directly with ATT? The new company will probably be fine, but they want a 2 year commitment, and are hiking the price.

Hello, @jmat1971,


Thanks for reaching out. Your dish doesn't appear to be supported by our network currently. If it can be used, you would need to get a new SIM card for it. It would need to be unlocked from your current provider. You would need to check with them for their unlock requirements.


You may want to look into getting AT&T Fixed Wireless Internet and getting equipment to work with it. Click on Check availability in the preceding link to see if we have it in your area and to get started.


Have a great week.
