LBR20 — Orbi LTE Tri-band WiFi Router - Verizon Wireless?

First, I apologize for putting in Orbi Pro in the Location.  It would not allow me to put in the LBR20 Orbi.  Perhaps the model is too new and the website has not been updated.

 

I have owned the Orbi Pro system (model SRK60-100NAS) and am very happy with it.  But now, I am interested in purchasing the LBR20 — Orbi LTE Tri-band WiFi Router.  I live in a very rural and sparesely populated area and the only cellular carrier is Verizon Wireless.  Will this device work on the Verizon Wireless Network?  If the answer is 'Yes', I will purchase this today!

 

If the answer is 'No', then could you point me in the direction of a Netgear product that does connect to the Verizon Wireless Network, and also connects to an Ethernet Router via an Ethernet cable?

I have had the Orbi LBR20 since late August and can tell you it does NOT currently work with Verizon.    I have constant disconnects and I have been told by Verizon that the IMEI of the device is not recongnized by Verizon.

 

I have also been told by Netgear that is is not certified with Verizon and they cant tell me excatly when it will be, but couldn be in Q4 or Q1..

 

I really wish it worked, as when i is not disconnecting, it works great.
