I am interested in using an mr400 tp-link router for simm card internet.
I'm told to be careful as these routers don't support all the bands used in Australia.
I believe it should be okay in Melbourne but....famous last words.
So.. does anyone know the bands/Freq used for 4G or 4G lte in and around melbourne and perhaps I can then check if it matches those that this router supports.
thanks in advance.
Thanks for raising this with us.
We'd recommend checking out the 4G Home Internet modems approved by Optus.
Please note that if you decide not to use the modem we supply, the support we can provide may be limited.

@armarraI suggest before buying you do allot of research to see if anyone has got it to work with Optus as Optus network does not play ball with most non branded 4G modems as their back-end locks out most non Optus modems (by back end I mean that you will not be able to access the internet if it doe snot work).
As far as I am aware, apart from my info above the only other response you will get is the one from @Sarah_YC representing the standard optus response.
1) that the docs referred to are NOT accurate and do not include some Optus branded modems that they have sold in the past that work
2) Some people have gotten on branded modems to work on the oputs network, but others have failed.
