Can Pre-paid Data only plans be used on a 4G LTE network?

I want to get a pre-paid data-only plan in Lynchburg, VA but 5G is not available there.  Can a 4G LTE hotspot be used on a pre-paid data-only plan if the only network available is 4G?

Good afternoon @netbrad, thanks for reaching out to us. It would be a pleasure to assist you with your prepaid hotspot inquiries. 


If your hotspot device is 4GLTE compatible, you will be able to receive up to 4GLTE speeds depending on the towers in the area. To check if your hotspot will work on our Prepaid network, we recommend checking our Prepaid Compatible Devices.


In this specific case if your device is compatible, you would receive 4G speeds as your tower can only support that network strength. Feel free to use our Wireless Coverage Map to view your coverage on the go. Please be aware that your prepaid data plan will need to support your device's network type to receive faster connection. 


If you have any further questions or concerns, please let us know. Thank you for being a part of our AT&T Community.
