Is it possible to change 4G module on ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6G ?

Hello,

I am looking to buy ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6G
But i see it only have Cat9 which is not the fastest !
So i want to know can i change the 4G module to another one faster !
I am looking at Telit LM960 4G LTE Cat18 PCIe Module  or any another faster 4G module ?

Thanks

Welcome to the Community

Unfortunately, no. Presently, the only built-in WWAN modem whitelisted in x1c gen6' BIOS and approved is Fibocom L850-GL

Telit LM960 is a good module for fast data, but it's not yet available now. You can consider the Sierra AirPrime EM7565, which is at the same level and it's already available now in the market.

No one Lenovo laptop will work with any Telit wwan modem.
