supported frequency

Hello,

i'm buying this phone from HK and i would like to make sure that it is supported on your network, can you please let me know, here are the specs.

Xiaomi redmi note2 
2G:GSM 900/1800/1900MHz 
3G:WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100MHzFDD 
4G:FDD LTE B3:1800/B1:2100/B7:2600MHzTDD 
4G:TDD LTE B38:2600/B39:1900/B40:2300/B41:2555-2655MHz

thank you for your help.

Hello Tony3,

 

  Welcome to the forums!

 

 Judging by those specifications, that phone would have both of the compatible bands/frequencies for '3G', however, would only have one compatible band for 2G (band 2, 1900MHz). With regards to LTE, that phone would also only have one compatible band/frequency (band 7, 2600MHz). FidoAlyson has posted the compatible bands/frequencies or you can verify them here.

 

 So as FidoAlyson suggested, that phone should work on the network. However, since it does not have all of the compatible bands/frequencies, coverage could be limited and depend on the bands/frequencies of the surrounding towers.

 

  The phone would work on the 2G network however, one thing to consider is signal strength. Even though the area may be covered, if you're relying on a single frequency, signal strength may be an issue. The lower 850 MHz frequency would have a better penetrative ablility than the higher 1900 MHz frequency. So if you're only relying on 1900 MHz, reception indoors might be less reliable...

 

  With regards to LTE, again the phone would work on LTE however, band 7 (2600MHz) is not as widely used as band 4 (AWS or 1700/2100MHz) so depending on where you are, you may or may not get LTE. I have previously posted regarding a site which may give an indication of where the cell towers are located.

 

Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers

Hi Tony3 and Welcome to the Community!

If you want your phone to work on our network, you have to make sure it's unlocked

Here are the frequencies we use:

GSM, UMTS, HSPA and HSPA+ at 850 MHz and 1900 MHz

 

To be compatible with LTE here's what we have:

700MHz on band 17

1700/2100 MHz on band 4

2600 MHz on band 7

 

From the look of it, you should be able to connect to our network Smiley
