Will my new phone work in Fido Canada LTE network?

Hello,

I bought a new phone Xiaomi Mi Max and I am wondering if it can connect to the fido LTE network?

CDMA 800 / 1900

HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100

LTE band 1(2100), 3(1800), 7(2600), 38(2600), 39(1900), 40(2300), 41(2500)

Hello Deicom,

 

  Welcome to the community!

 

  Judging by those specifications, that phone would have all of the compatible bands/frequencies for 2G and '3G'. With regards to LTE, that phone only has one compatible band/frequency, band 7 or 2600 MHz. You can verify the compatible bands/frequencies here. While the phone should work on the LTE network, coverage depends on the bands/frequencies of your surrounding towers. You can get an idea of the bands/frequencies your surrounding towers support here.

 

  Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers
