When the mobile broadband item for a connected service is clicked in the left
panel of the Network Manager applet there is much information missing in the
displayed information:
1. Connection State
2. Connection Speed
3. MAC address
4. Signal quality
5. Access Technology
6. The Traffic graph is not plotted although the Received: and Transmitted:
data changes.
7. The Signal Strength bar at the top does not display anything.

In version 11.4 I believe this data was present but I have not seen it in any
of the 12.x series.

The dongle in use is a Vodafone K3565 which appears to be a rebranded Huawei
E220 device.

I need to use this device in locations with poor coverage and being able to
see its state and performance is exceedingly helpful.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in mobile broadband dongle
2. Enable mobile broadband in Network Manager applet.
3. Connect to service.
4. Click to reveal service details.
Actual Results:
Service details not shown.

Expected Results:
Service details to be shown
