WAP LTE on ATT

Has anyone successfully connected to ATT using LTE. I have the most recent ROS and have set the APN to broadband. I can get it to connect on 3g, but not LTE. Do we need to mess with Bands?

Re: Point to Point

Tried that to begin with. No improvement. We have ordered a licensed link so this will be a thing of the past. However, on other links, it would be nice to squeeze 400+ meg on a PTP 80 MHz. Other brands we deploy will get exactly that on 80 MHz. I am of the impression no one is getting over 200 meg ...

You are not doing bonding are you? The bonding for all those who do not reallize gives you failover if one of the four radios dies, killing one link. All traffic will switch over to the remaining wireless link.
