I have the Dutch telecom provider Simpel. Mobile data in the Netherlands works fine. In the Netherlands, I use Simpel with mcc=“204” mnc=“16”. See here some previous reports by me:
- Simpel in Netherlands not recognized (#9) · Issues · GNOME / mobile-broadband-provider-info · GitLab
- RFE: Add Simpel to list of providers in The Netherlands (#4) · Issues · GNOME / mobile-broadband-provider-info · GitLab
- Correct Simple internet provider (!77) · Merge requests · GNOME / mobile-broadband-provider-info · GitLab
Currently, I’m in France, but I can not get mobile data working.
Do you have any suggestions to determine what is causing this issue?
When I go to GNOME Settings > Mobile > Network, Automatic is enabled. I see only one network name below, which is greyed out and checked. The network is Orange F. But at other times, I saw another name: BYTEL. When I disable Automatic, Choose Network starts spinning. Many times I got a timeout, but now I’m repeating it to write this topic, all of a sudden I do get a list, with several names duplicated: SFR, Free (2x), 208 16, BYTEL (3x), Orange (2x), Orange F. Before this, I often got a timeout in getting the network list.
Now I have the question which of these I should select. Or should I stay at the Automatic selection? How does this Automatic selection work?
Do I have to make any changes to the serviceproviders.xml? For example, for Simpel it seems that I have to use (also abroad, I got an SMS with this) the Access Point: internet.access.nl.
Any hints and suggestions to get mobile data working, or to debug this issue are welcome.
