Nexus 5X / Nexus 6P - will these work at LTE on Fido

Below are the specs for 5x:

GSM/EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900MHz
UMTS/WCDMA: B1/2/4/5/8
CDMA: BC0/1/10
LTE (FDD): B1/2/3/4/5/7/12/13/17/20/25/26/29
LTE (TDD): B41
LTE CA DL: B2-B2, B2-B4, B2-B5, B2-B12, B2-B13, B2-B17, B2-B29, B4-B4, B4-B5, B4-B7, B4-B12, B4-B13, B4-B17, B4-B29, B41-B41

 

and 6P:

GSM/EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900MHz
UMTS/WCDMA: B1/2/4/5/8
CDMA: BC0/1/10
LTE (FDD): B2/3/4/5/7/12/13/17/25/26/29/30
LTE (TDD): B41
CA DL: B2-B2, B2-B4, B2-B5, B2-B12, B2-B13, B2-B17, B2-B29, B4-B4, B4-B5, B4-B13, B4-B17, B4-B29, B41-B41

 

Will both of these work at LTE speeds?

Hello Thepatil,

 

  Welcome to the forums!

 

  According to those specifications, both phones have all of the compatible bands/frequencies for 2G, '3G', and LTE (highlighted above). You can verify the bands/frequencies here.

 

  As long as the phones are unlocked, they should have no problem accessing the Fido/Rogers networks.

 

  Hope this helps! Smiley

 

Cheers

Just an fyi all nexus phones come unlocked. No need to worry about them being held hostage by a carrier.

Hi KM69

 

From what you posted it should work.  Make sure you set up the proper APNs for messaging and internet services.

Hello KM69,

 

  Welcome to the forums!

 

  I would agree with @FidoMatt that according to those specifications the phone would be fully compatible with the Fido/Rogers' networks. I would however, like to clarify that since the phone is LTE, the phone should use the single APN, ltemobile.apn. You can verify the correct APN setting here.

 

  Hope this helps Smiley
