Surface Pro with LTE Advanced Gets a Reliability Update

Posted on June 8, 2018 by Paul Thurrott in Microsoft Surface with 4 Comments

Microsoft’s Surface Pro with LTE Advanced received a firmware update last night that improves the reliability of broadband data.

“A new firmware update for the Surface Pro with LTE Advanced (Model 1807) is now available,” Microsoft’s Brandon Records revealed. “This new firmware for the Surface Mobile Broadband Update Device improves LTE network reliability.”

The Surface Pro update history website confirms the update, noting that it addresses reliability, but not security, connectivity, compatibility, performance, or battery life. It describes the update like so:

  • Surface Mobile Broadband Update Device – Firmware version 18.02.08.1700 improves LTE network reliability.

The update is available from Windows Update, of course. But IT pros will also find this update in the latest version of the Surface Pro LTE Drivers and Firmware download too.
