I just noticed the warning at Ubuntu's certification page. It might
be that it just doesn't work in 16.04 and older versions.
Anyway, it does not really answer my question regarding the MU736 and if
I _can_ buy and use that instead as I've seen very cheap used ones on eBay.
A new EM7455 will cost me at least 1500 NOK (about 200 USD), and I've
seen used MU736 modules for 2-300 NOK (25-40 USD).
