It contains the following sections:

This Mobile Wi-Fi supports three modes of network connection: 4G Preferred, 4G Only and 3G Only. If your SIM card supports WCDMA, select 3G Only; if your SIM card supports FDD-LTE or TDD-LTE, select 4G Preferred or 4G Only as needed. In general, the 4G network is faster than the 3G one.
