Long time connecting

I have a SARA AFF board and I’ve been using the UDP example for a while.
Recently, trying to get a network connection is taking about 10 minutes!
It does eventually come then after that I can send UDP packets.
I have this problem with both Vodafone and T-mobile sims.

is there anything else I could check on the board to make sure all is working correctly?
This is very frustrating


Check that you have the latest firmware on the Ublox module. Are you using AT+COPS=0 or do you force it to a operator number?
