LTE Bands

Hi,

 

I'm getting a new phone and it supports the following networks:

 

Network

2G/3G/4G LTE
GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
CDMA: Band Class: 0/1/10
WCDMA: Bands: 1/2/4/5/6/8/19
LTE: Bands: 1/2/4/5/17/19/25/26/41
 
 
Will it work with Fido LTE?
 
Please let me know. Thanks.

Re: LTE Bands

Hey everyone! 

 

I just saw this thread and I thought I'd update this in case anyone else comes across this and had a similar inquiry. Smiley

 

To access LTE network, the phone must be compatible with one or more of the following:

  • 700 MHz on Band 17;
  • 1700/2100 MHz on Band 4;
  • 2600 MHz on Band 7.

Hope this helps!

Re: LTE Bands

Will the Xperia Z work with Fido/Rogers 4G or 3G? 

Or will it work with any other carriers?

 

Specification for phone: 

 

UMTS HSPA+ 850 (Band V), 900 (Band VIII), 2100 (Band I) MHz * 
LTE (Bands 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 20)*

Re: LTE Bands

Hi kcjzj007,

Those are the correct LTE frequencies used by Fido.

Re: LTE Bands

If the device only support 2600MHz, can it use Fido"s LTE?

Re: LTE Bands

Looking at FIDO's iphone 5 phone page spec, LTE is only on 750 and 1700MHZ.  If FIDO only supports LTE at 2100/2600, then FIDO is not supporting LTD on its own iPHone 5.

 

Here is the FIDO page about the iphoen 5.

Thank you

Re: LTE Bands

Hey kcjzj007!

The Fido network uses GSM, UMTS, HSPA and HSPA+ at 850 MHz and 1900 MHz and LTE at 2100 MHz and 2600 MHz.

The mistake is on the device compatibility page where the IPhone 5 should be listed as “LTE 700/1700/2100 MHz” instead of “LTE 700/1700 MHz”.

I hope this clarifies.

Re: LTE Bands

Which iPad do you have? The most recent iPads work on Bands 4 and 17 (700/1700/2100) of the LTE network.

Re: LTE Bands

It's 1700/2100 and 2600.. its cause for the AWS spectrum(1700/2100) requires both 1700MHz(for uplink) and 2100MHz(for downlink).. 2600 can operate on it's own.. 😃
