So it's been a while, but I now have MM 1.14.2 installed on my embedded
system via Debian Buster Backports repo.
I can successfully set the allowed mode to "3G" and get a UMTS connection.
* mmcli -m 0 --set-allowed-modes="3G"*
However, if I try to lock to 4G the connection never succeeds.
mmcli -m 0 --set-allowed-modes="4G"**
The only way I can get an LTE connection is with the following.
mmcli -m 0 --set-allowed-modes="3G|4G" --set-preferred-mode=4G**
*I presume this is a bug? But maybe there is something else going on**?**
**Any ideas or suggestions to get an LTE connection with setting 4G as
the only allowed mode?*
Also, I've just noticed that 1.14.6 has just hit the Buster Backport
repo. I'm not sure if that will help or not, but I don't see anything
in the NEWS file that would suggest a change in this area.
