Thanks you for the comprehensive report.  This is should help us get
started with mobile broadband connections in FreedomBox.

network-manager GUI programs use a common database of mobile broadband
network providers[1][2][3].  This database provides all the information
needed to configure a mobile internet connection easily without asking
the user for overly technical information. This is available as a
separate package in Debian[4] for easy usage.  During the initial type
selection page, we can have 'Mobile Broadband' as an option and later
request for 'Country' and 'Provider' (with type) and let the user select.

I have created a separate issue to track the progress[5].  Could you try
removing all the ppp specific settings and see if your are still able to
connect?  You can edit the /etc/NetworkManager/ connection file directly
for ease.  This will tell use that we don't have to bother with ppp
settings which I hope is the case.
