The Internet through air is distributed through wireless and CDMA. If you want to use this modem in that region, you will need a SIM card from the network operators available in the region, then configure the modem.

In Ethiopia the only carrier available is ETHMTN. The band used by the carrier is running on GSM 900 MHz (GPRS, EDGE) and 2100 MHz UMTS, HSDPA, HSUPA. This means that you'll need to contact ETHMTN to obtain a GSM SIM card because there is a very big possibility you have a CDMA SIM card that is not compatible with this network.
