How to force Orange dongle to connect to T-Mobile ?


[link to this post]
 
I use Orange MBB dongle via 3G router at home.
Recently it failed to work, I had to plug the dongle directly into the laptop and it connected to T-Mobile 3G+ service.
Now it reverted back to Orange, but that is just 3G (not 3G+).
I would like to test if the T-Mobile is actually faster.
How can I make the dongle to connect to T-Mobile ?
What is T-Mobile APN ? Will that do it ?
TIA

That doesnot appear to be true.
Fiddling with the Ev..Ev.. software dongle settings I was able to select T-Mobile as the network, and in deed for same days I was getting 3G+ T-M connection.
Last night, it reverted to Orange frown, so I may have to do that again.
Then see if that could be done using a router (no EE software).
