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!

Hello Rachel,

 

  I believe that page needs updating. Fido/Rogers' LTE bands/frequencies are: Band 4 (AWS, 1700/2100 MHz); Band 7 (2600 MHz); and Band 17 (700 MHz).

 

Cheers

Hi,

 

1 -Can you confirm if a Verizon phone (Lumia ICON also know as Lumia 929) will work on the FIDO LTE network?

2 - Will it get full speeds on LTE?

3 -Will I be able to use the HOTSPOT feature to allow my kids to tether to my data package?

 

What is the LTE bands that FIDO uses today as of November 2014?  Does it use the 700 MHz like Rogers.

 

Thanks.

 

 



I'm using a verizon phone (Motorola droid mini) on fido and supposedly the 4g/LTE mode is locked to Verizon. I haven't actually tried to unlock it because Verizon's sales staff won't even sell me a full priced phone with out an American address and a Verizon account, I doubt they will help me unlock my phone. I am able to use the internet when I connect to 4g/LTE but I am not able to make calls or send texts. I can receive texts, and calls that are in process do continue if I connect to 4g/LTE, I suspect this is because this phone can access 4g/LTE on 2100 mHz. I tether my phone to my tablet all the time as a mobile hotspot and I don't think I've been charged extra.

 

Your phone appears to have the same network capabilities as mine. Let me know if you ever manage to get it fully unlocked, I wonder if that's the key to getting the talk and text to work on 4g/LTE.

Re: FIDO LTE Bands Match

Hello FidoJudhy,


I have a question as well. I purchased Samsung Galaxy Note Edge SM-N915FY in Europe and using it here in Canada. In tech spec it says:
4G bands: LTE 800 / 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1800 / 1900 / 2100 / 2600 (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 20) - SM-N915FY
Is that means that my phone is compatible with Fido LTE? On my phone screen I always see 4G logo when using data.

 

Thank you,

Re: FIDO LTE Bands Match

What speeds do you get? We have seen unlocked phones showing 4G when actually on LTE. Also, are you sure the right APN is set? You can find details on this here.

 

Our most widely used band is band 4 and we have some towers on band 7 although much less then 4. 

 

Let us know of the speeds you are getting, this will help us say if you get LTE.

Is that LTE speed?

Re: FIDO LTE Bands Match

Hi there Hafling Smiley

 

Fido LTE customers can experience typical download speeds ranging from 12 to 25 Mbps, even up to 40 Mbps (depending on the device model). If the "LTE Symbol" appears on the top bar of the phone, you are connected to LTE.
If the symbol indicates 4G, you are therefore connected to the 4G network. You can move between LTE, 4G HSPA+ and/or

EDGE networks without any interruption of service.

 

You can take a look at our LTE coverage map here

 

I hope this helped; keep us posted if need be.

Hello Devil_Fudou,

 

  Thanks for the input and welcome to the forums!

 

  There are some versions of the Redmi Note 4G which are compatible with Fido/Rogers' LTE network and other versions which are not. For instance, the version from Singapore is compatible while the version from India is not. I'm sure there are other versions as well. Unfortunately, judging by the specifications listed, the version Wingche had problems with was not compatible with the network.

 

  I'm glad to hear that your version does work with Fido/Rogers' LTE.

 

Cheers

Hey hurric!

 

In order to use LTE, your phone must have one or more of the following bands:

 

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

Unfortunately it does not look like your Zenfone 2 is compatible with the LTE bands used here, however, you will still be able to access 2G and 3G for voice, data and messaging.

 

Hope this helps!
