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!

Re: FIDO LTE Bands Match

thank you for the reply. 😕 Although I'm not currently using LTE, I guess it's not good that it's not supported. May have to wait for a N/A edition of zenfone2

Re: FIDO LTE Bands Match

So just to confirm are there some of you getting LTE on just 2600mhz Band 7 ??
I am looking at buying a Kingzone N3 or Z1Chinese smartphone that has the 2600mhz band but none of the others and I definitely want LTE to work.

Hello Cory71,

 

  A phone with only 2600MHz (band 7) will work on the Fido/Rogers LTE network. However, you should be aware that since it only has the one compatible frequency, coverage may be limited depending on the frequencies of the surrounding towers. Coverage with band 7 is not as widespread as the coverage with band 4. If LTE is important to you, then you might consider trying to identify the frequencies of the LTE towers in the areas you intend to use your phone most often.

 

  Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers

Re: FIDO LTE Bands Match

sorry let me ask again. Will this work with regular 3G and LTE. 

 

Data Rate:
HSPA+: UL 5.76 / DL 42 Mbps
DC-HSPA+: UL 5.76 / DL 42 Mbps
LTE Cat3:UL 50 / DL 100 Mbps
2G :
EDGE/GPRS/GSM :
850/900/1800/1900,
3G :
UMTS :
850/900/1900/2100
WCDMA :
850/900/1900/2100
4G :
FDD-LTE:
2100MHz(1)/1900MHz(2)/1800MHz(3)/1700MHz AWS(4)/850MHz(5)/2600MHz(7)/900MHz(8)/700MHz(28)
其他功能
GPS, GLONASS & AGPS

 

It  needs to be compatible with Fido's

 

  • 700 MHz on Band 17;
  • 1700/2100 MHz on Band 4;
  • 2600 MHz on Band 7.

looks like in 2600 band 7 it's compatible but I don't know what AWS 4 is for 1700.

Hello Hurric,

 

  That phone is fully compatible with Fido/Rogers' 2G and '3G' networks as it has 850MHz and 1900MHz for both networks.

 

  With regards to LTE, that phone is compatible with two of the three frequencies/bands Fido/Rogers uses. AWS stands for advanced wireless services and refers to band 4 (1700/2100MHz). It is sometimes simply referred to as 1700MHz to avoid confusion with 2100MHz of band 1.

 

  So, that phone is compatible with band 4 and band 7 on the LTE network.

 

  Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers

Re: FIDO LTE Bands Match

Hey there, 

 

I have another one to ask about:

 

  • Connectivity Technology: GSM + WCDMA + TDD LTE + FDDLTE(Single Micro-SIM Card)
  • Network Band: :GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz + WCDMA 900/2100MHz + LTE: FDD B3/B7/B20+TDD B38/B39/B40

Thanks!

Hello Jjjjjggdifgfg,

 

  That phone is compatible with the 2G network as it has both 850 and 1900MHz. Unfortunately, that phone does not have either of the compatible '3G' frequencies.

 

  With regards to LTE, Fido/Rogers uses FDD so the TDD bands would not work. That phone has only one compatible LTE frequency, 2600MHz or band 7. You should be aware that, with only band 7, LTE coverage could be limited depending on the surrounding towers.

 

  Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers

Re: FIDO LTE Bands Match

Thanks Cawtau!

 

From that and your previous post, I think I know what to look for now.

 

Tired of all the overpriced "flagship" stuff out there.

 

Been looking at fct lately to find a china tablet with compatible bands on Fido.  Let me know if you guys see any models that will work, I'll do the same.
