I would like to know if the Netgear LTE Wireless Modem model LB2120 and a AT&T Prepaid SIM Kit will work together to create an AT&T 4G LTE internet connection for my home. I currently have had DSL for 7+ years and it is slow........
I keep calling ATT about Uverse and Fiber for the last seven years but it is continuously not available in my area.
I have filled out the online request to let me know when it is available but never get feedback on any kind of timeline.
So the 4G LTE modem seems to be my only option to increase speed. There is an ATT: Item SKU: 6145B(AT&T Wireless Internet Paramount Black) 4G modem but it is limited to a single hardwire Ethernet connection and will not allow connection to a switch to allow for more hardwired devices.
The Netgear LTE Modem model LB2120 allows connection to a switch and router to expand hardwire connections.
I would also like to know what data plans are available for this modem / SIM card combination.

It’s great to see that you’re looking to upgrade to better speeds for your service.
Getting our LB2120 along with a prepaid SIM will allow you to make a 4G LTE connection, and you can find out more information about the specifications here.
Our prepaid plans vary with how much you would like to pay monthly.
Let us know if this helps!

The Netgear LB2120 4G LTE Modem is an AT&T Network-Ready device. It does not come with a Micro SIM card, but we do have them available in our Online Store. Before ordering a SIM card, simply enter the device's IMEI number to ensure that you have chosen the correct SIM card. This device is compatible with 3G/4G LTE Mobile Service. You can check out all of our Data plans for tablets and other mobile devices here. DataConnect is a great monthly plan if you only need up to 5GB of data. AT&T Fixed Wireless Internet provides qualified households and small businesses with high-speed Internet service via an outdoor antenna and indoor Wi-Fi Gateway router. To find out if you qualify, please click on the orange “Check Availability” button at the link that we've provided for you and enter your address. Let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Hey there @Netnut,
That's a great question. AT&T Fixed Wireless Internet is only available in select (typically rural) areas. Since your home address is surrounded by AT&T cell towers, it is not likely that this service would be available in your area. As previously stated, one of the data plans that we have to offer for tablets and other mobile devices would be the best option to get 3G/4G LTE Mobile Service for your Netgear LB2120 LTE Modem. We'll be here to assist you if you still have questions or concerns.

Our $60 fixed wireless plan provides speeds of up to 10Mbps download/1Mbps upload. If you sign up and begin service prior to 9/30/18, you would get 340 GB per month (after that, it would be 170 GB per month). You can check availability in your area here.

We are sorry for the confusion with the AT&T Maps Wireless Coverage Map.
It appears AT&T Fixed Wireless Internet is not available in Roselle, IL 60172, however, Wireless 4G LTE Data is. Fixed Wireless is available in select communities, not everywhere in orange on the 4G LTE coverage map.
We suggest the Nighthawk LTE Mobile Hotspot Router to upgrade your mobile Wi-Fi experience, with fast media and sharing, long-lasting battery, data offloading, and access control. It pairs well with one the new AT&T Unlimted &More plans. Get unlimited data, talk, and text, and 30+ live and on-demand channels at no extra charge.
AT&T Wireless & Entertainment your way, on the nations largest and most reliable network.
