Bug Description

Colombia is already implementing 4G LTE (UNE) technology and Virgin Mobile is a new mobile provider, so it is necessary to add new mobile operator with its respective configuration.

It affects all versions of Ubuntu

Binary package hint: mobile-broadband-provider-info

Dial Number : *99#
Authentication Mode : CHAP


ISP: Virgin Mobile
Dial Number: *99#
Authentication Mode: PAP

Also, in Colombia the "Comcel" provider of mobile Internet services has changed its name to "Claro," I finished reviewing the list of mobile Internet ISP for Colombia, and yet still see the old operator.

What is required is to change the name from "Comcel" to "Claro", the APN settings are the same
