NB-IoT in The Netherlands and Belgium

Currently we arew using NB-IoT from T-Mobile for all our units in the Netherlands. They are hardcoded to use band 8 and the dutch APN:
What is required to move my NB-IoT units from The Netherlands to Belgium ? From what I see, the roaming partner in Belgium (Orange) uses band 20, and maybe the APN will be different ?
Hi Cees, the APN will always be the same irrespective of th country your devices are in when sending data. The band is always depending on the MNO, that provides the (strongest) signal in the area where your device is located. For roaming cases this needs to be flexible rather than hardcoded, as well as the operator ID.
I second what Uta said for roaming use-cases.
For non-roaming use-cases, I would recommend to always set the band and the PLMN ID to ensure faster attach. So please be more patient with the attach time if you don’t set these values.
