hi guys, sorry a bit late

Here's my coverage:

Malaysia

The following networks operate in this country/area:

Celcom Axiata Berhad (CELCOM GSM)


GSM 900

GSM 1800

3G 2100


DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (DiGi)


GSM 1800

3G 2100


Maxis Communications Berhad (MMS & MB)


GSM 900/1800

3G 2100


U Mobile Sdn. Bhd. (U Mobile)


3G 2100


Indonesia


The following networks operate in this country/area:

PT Indosat Tbk (INDOSAT)


GSM 900/1800

GSM 1800

PT Telekomunikasi Selular (TELKOMSEL)


GSM 900/1800

3G 2100

PT. Smartfren Telecom Tbk. (PT Mobile-8 Telekom Tbk)


CDMA 800

CDMA 2000 1X


PT. Axis Telekom Indonesia (AXIS)


GSM 1800

3G 2100


PT. Hutchison 3 Indonesia (3)


GSM 1800

3G 2100


PT. XL Axiata Tbk (XL)


GSM 900/1800

so according to all modem specs, PLS8-E , PLS8-US , PHS8-P/J/K, PHS8-E, PHS8-US/USA and PXS8

for the moment, PXS8 work for Indonesia market because they are the one with CDMA and PLS8-E is best for Malaysia

Will be much better if you guys implement dual SIM card for Asian customers. Sorry if asking too much [Not feasible] requests

Hello,

Here is what I've found for France.

source 1 : http://www.arcep.fr/fileadmin/repris...ole-260410.pdf
source 2 : http://www.lowcostmobile.com/actuali...e-gsm-umts-lte

If I correctly understand, the PLS8-E should be the best solution.

Quick question...
Where can cellular modem options for Neo900 be discussed? A comparison of them made? It may be an obvious reason which I do not notice, but why all the modems listed are gemalto's?

For example:

PHS8 and PXS8 have only GPS, no backup. PLS8 has GPS/AGPS/GLONASS. Qualcomm's MDM9625+ and MDM9225+ have GPS+GLONASS+Beidou.

PHS8 and PXS8 have 3G+2G+GPRS/EDGE. PLS8 has GPRS/EDGE+4G(Quad Band LTE, Tri Band UMTS/DC-HSPA+).
PXS8 has Dual-Band CDMA. PHS8 has TCP/IP.

Qualcomm's MDM9625+ and MDM9225+ have GSM/GPRS/EDGE, TD-SCDMA, LTE Adv. Cat 4, LTE FDD/TDD CAT 3, SVLTE-DB, HSPA+ Release10, EGAL.
MDM9625 is considered a bit more advanced (world mode). I am not sure if I understand correctly, but the specification sheet includes WiFi for all Qualcomm MDM chips (it's like having FM radio transceiver and Bluetooth on one chip: very confusing).

I am confused with all these bands, but 'world mode' sounds interesting. I am personally more interested in GPS+GLONASS+Beidou bit.

Best wishes.

All of the variants (PHS8, PXS8 and PLS8) support GPS and GLONASS, both with assistance mode.

Modem variants are only from Gemalto, because they are pin-compatible with each other, which makes all this "modem selection" possible.

Alright. I was looking only at the first page of the pdf file; I should have scrolled down.

Interesting... Would Qualcomm's variants be pin-compatible with each other, too? Either way, it's awkward when different chipset makers have different pins, as if they just wanted to stop users from jumping between different manufacturers.
Best wishes. Thank you.

Hi,

For New Zealand.

PLS8-e would be best for LTE in NZ as the NZ LTE frequency is 1800mhz on all 3 competitors networks.
3G would only work on Vodafone and 2degrees network.

Next best would be PXS8 as this would support 3G on all 3 competitors networks as well.

New Zealand will soon be building a 700mhz LTE network of which there is no support on any of these modems.

Nice and simple is NZ.

I've been trying to figure out which LTE modem I will need in Colombia but I'm quite confused by some of the information I've been reading.

There are several LTE operators here which as I understand it operate LTE on either AWS/Band 4 (1700MHz) or Band 7 (which most of the websites here report as 2500MHz but some report it as 2600MHz).

For those operators on 1700MHz, I would go for the PLS8-US modem which would be the safest option.

My confusion relates to Band 7. 2500MHz is not listed in the PLS8 data sheet however it does list Band 7 and 2600MHz for the PLS8-E modem. Would you expect the PLS8-E to work with these operators?

I would prefer to go for the PLS8-E modem (if compatible here) as it would also be the best choice for if/when I return to Europe. Band 7 is also the band offered by the operator that offers the best TV package here (for football) which would be appealing should I at some stage want to go for a quadruple play (convergence of services) solution.

Any advice would be much appreciated.
