Most of the time "75% to 85%" the 5G connections is faster by 25 to 50% or more. I have not been in a location where I'm not able to stream on either. When the 4G is better, it can be as much as 100% faster. 8 to 12 MB vs 19 to 24MB.

Late at night, I've seen the 5G over 250 MB while the best the 4G was 110MB

The T9 was $90 to initially check out the plan when it first came out & got the M2000 for 1/2 off with a 2 year contract "around $180".
This is very similar to what I am seeing with my M2000 and data plan as well. The place where the M2000 may struggle is if I use it in the RV while moving. The lack of an antenna port puts it at a disadvantage to my current enterprise Pepwave router.

I live in a rural area and use cellular (Verizon) as our home connection to the internet as well as when RVing. I recently got a T-Mobil TRY ME hot spot (Franklin T9 I think) to test the coverage at home. The hot spot drops connections with my computer constantly (I have had to log in three times while reading this thread). Is this a normal situation? When it is connected, I seem to have better transfer rates than with Verizon. And have people's experience with M2000 been better than with the T-9 regarding maintaining a connection to devices? 5G would be nice, but 4G consistently would be better.

Any input would be helpful as I try to determine whether to switch carriers. And if there are third party modem/routers that perform more consistently I am open to suggestions. Thanks in advance for responses.

I've had the T9 for 3 mts. There have been times when the PC "PC on almost 24 / 7" will disconnect "3 or 4 times total over the time I've had it". I normally will reboot the hotspot and PC when it happens. Once rebooted it has been solid after that.

Have you checked if there is a BIOS update?
Are you running it charging it all the time - I have mine on a smart plug so it does not over charge.

Rugged Enterprise Router with Embedded Modem
with 4G/LTE Technology included Band 71 (600 MHz)
LTE Bands: B2, B4, B12, B13, B14, B17, B66, B71

This MoFi router still - in 2021 - still does not support anything but 2.4ghz Wifi. It has zero 5Ghz Wifi support or access. This is a serious and important failing of the MoFi product lines.

Ask anyone that has 2.4g or 5g or better yet dual 2.4/5 ghz broadcasting simultaneously on the same modem and they'll tell you that 5ghz access is an important improvement in WiFi both within your RV and devices but in picking up outside (i.e. campground) wifi that is not overloaded.

Read the MoFi specs they don't even mention the router's WiFi capabilities. Because if they did you'd see immediately that they are sorely lacking in capability.

Wonder if Wifiranger will have a new module to swap out in the Denali for those of us who have that unit in order to get 5G?
