Finally a 4G network-compatible HAT for the Raspberry Pi! This HAT accepts a 1.8V/3V sim card and supports a wide range of LTE Cat-4 network bands alongside 3G and 2G support, including phone calls via AT commands and SMS functionality!

Speeds of up to 50Mbps Uplink* and 150Mbps Downlink* are possible on a 4G network, and up to 5.76Mbps Uplink* and 42Mbps Downlink* on 3G (HSPA+). The HAT supports GNSS positioning via the GPS, Beidou, GLONASS and LBS Base satellite systems and includes an onboard audio jack and audio decoder support making telephone calls.

The onboard TF card slot allows you to add dedicated storage for data files such as files, messages and more. A Cp2102 USB to UART converter allows serial debugging, with broken our UART control pins to connect hosts boards such as the Arduino. There's also an onboard voltage translator for 3.3V or 5V configuration, and 2x LED status indicators!

Included in the package is the HAT, an LTE antenna, GPS antenna, 2x USB cable and fixings.

* Idealised data rate - actual data rate depends on factors like network coverage, traffic congestion, base station condition etc. Your mileage may vary.
