Will a Fido SIm card work with an unlocked ZTE MF288 Smart Hub.


We live in a rural area and currently hotspot for internet usage. 

We would love to use the Smart Hub in its place.


Is there a similar device anyone is aware of that would work the same way ?


Thank you

Hello Corndog628,


  Welcome to the community!


  As far as I can tell from various online sources (see here, here, and here), these appear to be the device's specifications:

LTE Bands 2/4/5/7/12/13/25/26/29/30/66

3G UMTS:Bands 850/1900 mhz


    According to those specifications, that device would have all of compatible bands/frequencies for the '3G' and LTE networks. While the device should work on the networks, as FidoSaira mentioned, they cannot guarantee it will work since it hasn't been tested on the networks. You should note that the specifications of the particular device in which you're interested might have differing specifications from those I was able to find online.


Hope this helps 😀




Hello @Corndog628,


Welcome to the Community!


We cannot guarantee how it will work since its a non-fido product.


Are you currently with fido for your cellular? If yes, don't forget you can use your mobile's data for hotspot with 5 extra hours of free data session per billing cycle.


You can also look into the hotspot we provide.
