They all fully support fido 2G/3G network, but neither does fully support fido LTE network. 

 

Hello Joelllamas,

 

  As @FidoAmanda noted, it would be helpful if you could provide which model version of the phone you are inquiring about.

 

  However, according to GSMArena, there appears to be three versions: Axon Lux, Axon Elite, and Axon Pro. As @AdamBeast mentioned, all three of those versions have all of the compatible bands/frequencies for 2G and '3G'.

 

  With regards to LTE:

the Axon Lux has only one compatible band/frequency (band 7, 2600MHz);

the Axon Elite has only two compatible bands/frequencies (bands 7 and 17, 2600 and 700MHz, respectively);

while the Axon Pro has all three of the compatible bands/frequencies.

 

  You can verify the compatible bands/frequencies here.

 

  The more compatible bands/frequencies a phone has, the greater likelihood of service. That said, the phone does not need to be compatible with all of the bands/frequencies in order for it to work with the Fido/Rogers networks. Access to the networks would depend on the bands/frequencies of the surrounding towers. Not all of the towers use all of the bands/frequencies.

  

  So, all three of those versions would work on the 2G, '3G', and LTE networks. However, LTE coverage with the Lux or Elite would depend on the bands/frequencies of the surrounding towers.

 

  Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers

Hey joelllamas,

 

Do you know the exact model of the phone that you'd like to use on our network?

 

From what I can find, it seems that there are several models of ZTE Axon phones so we'd need the exact model to confirm with you that it'll work on our network. 

 

Let us know!
