Microsoft this week began rolling out another firmware update for the Surface Pro with LTE. The update is a small one, only containing a single fix, but it should help to improve any snags you've hit with network reliability while on the road.
- Surface – Firmware – 18.02.08.1700: Surface Mobile Broadband Update Device – Firmware - 18.02.08.1700 improves LTE network reliability.
Microsoft first began shipping the LTE version of its latest Surface Pro in December to commercial customers, and general consumers could first get their hands on it direct from Microsoft starting in May. LTE is available with a single configuration, sporting Intel's Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256 of storage.
If you already have the Surface Pro with LTE, you should be able to grab the latest firmware release via Windows Update or through the Microsoft Download Center. And if you're looking to pick one up, the LTE variant is available for $1,449 – though it can occasionally be found at a discount.
