It was from a post on Facebook. I just received confirmation that it is NOT the case:

I am pretty Ballsy for trying this freemii service out. Activated the sim on August 12. So far as I can it it’s pretty good I tried the speed test in my iPhone 8 and up speed is about 40 MB’s up and slow barley 1.5 MB’s down. The calls and text is great I was able to move the sim from iPhone 8 to iPhone XS no problems it works in both devices. The phones display AT&T LTE as if the sim was a AT&T sim.
As far as the apn name and apn network setting goes I don’t know that yet since I can’t see these settings in iPhone 8 or XS.
I will try the sim in my AT&T netgear aircard in a few days and set the apn and network settings. I will update You on here. Oh yea the customer support team are really good at responding to emails in a timely matter. Ordering the sim takes 3-5 days in the mail.
Thanks for the info. I was wondering if re speeds you meant to say 40 MB's down and 1.5 MBs up, for I think it's usually the case that download speeds are much faster than upload speed, though not always? Anyway, a 1.5 MB download speed doesn't sound impressive.
