    Hi,
    Depending on your location & distance from network station and Band frequency it may vary.
    Please check section#4.7 from the Document.

    Hi Saeed

    Thanks for your reply 🙂 Do you know what the difference between sleep and idle state is? Will the unit be in idle state as long as the raspberry pi is running and there is a 3G/4G signal, but not transfering? If not, what trigers the idle mode?

    Here is how IDLE and SLEEP mode are defined.
    IDLE: Software is active. The module has registered on the network and it is ready to send and receive data.
    SLEEP: The current consumption of the module will be reduced to the minimal level. During this mode, the module can still receive paging message and TCP/UDP data from the network normally.

    After powering on the Module, the device waits in Idle mode.
