FIDO LTE Bands Match

hello,

 

Ive been doing quite a bit of research and at this point Im still not sure about the following.

 

Will an international version of Nokia Lumia 920 will work with FIdo LTE?

 

The bands of the Nokia lumia thats being sold unlocked online are: LTE 800 / 1800 / 2600 / 900 / 2100

 

Do all of these bands have to match fido's lte bands? or 2100 is enough? 

 

thank you

Hey everyone, 

 

I think Cawtau's post Will my phone work on the Fido network might answer all your questions.

 

Cheers,

 

And thanks @Cawtau!

I also got an unlocked N7105 but could not link to Lte network. I did a lot research as to how to setup APN and had followed the instructions, but still does not work. Anyone has the solutions? Thanks.

Re: FIDO LTE Bands Match

If my phone supports the 2100 LTE band but not 2600, is it compatible with all of Fido's LTE markets?

Re: FIDO LTE Bands Match

Hi there,

 

I have an HTC One mini factory unlocked international version.  Will this work on the Fido LTE network?

 

  • 3G 900/1900/2100 MHz
  • 4G 800/1800/2600 Mhz

I also don't understand the AWS stuff.  It doesn't say anything in the specs for the HTC One mini to do with AWS...

 

Thanks!

Re: FIDO LTE Bands Match

I have a phone with this configuration

 

GSM:850/900/1800/1900

WCDMA: 900/2100

4 G LTE: 1800/2600

 

It seems to be appropriate on Fido Network

It is really slow when using the net.

Why?

Fernand

Re: FIDO LTE Bands Match

What specific phone are you using? and where do you live?

 

You need to set your phone to enable the LTE frequency in your phone.  If it is running at LTE you should have fast interent connection of 30+Mps. the top bar of the phone should tell you want network you are using. If your phone is running at 2G. it will be very slow.

 

The reason you are getting 2G is ether you didn't enable your phone or your location is poor LTE coverage.

It is effectively set to 2G. How come?

Wow so you're the one guy with a Jolla phone? JK. I have to ask WHY? You just like to swim against the tide? Curious what you payed for your phone.

Re: FIDO LTE Bands Match

Your 'jolla' phone doesn't support LTE 2600 until Q2 2014, and your phone doesn't have 3G bandwidth that matches Fido. So as of now, you can only use the slow 2G until an update is avaliable.

You have to contact Jolle for update status, what you are looking for is LTE 2600Mhz.

Re: FIDO LTE Bands Match

Many reasons to have a Jolla. First, always been a Nokia user. I was at the end with N9, which has still a much better user interface than Android and Iphone. The same with the Jolla phone, with its gesture user interface. Just imagine the number of actions one has to perform using a Iphone or an Android machine, compared to a Jolla. I already have an Iphone 5s, with 64G (which we cannot use, except if you install Itools on a Windows Pc. Another good reason. With the Jolla, I added a 64G memory card. I ordered the phone via a collegue which step mother lives in France. Paid, with the envoice about 625$ cdn.
