Your device must be compatible with the Fido/Rogers network, which uses:
GSM ~ EDGE (2G) ~ on band 5 (850MHz) and/or band 2 (1900MHz)
UMTS or WCDMA ~ HSPA (3G) / HSPA+ (4G) ~ on band 5 (850 MHz) and/or band 2 (1900 MHz).
To access LTE network, the phone must be compatible with:
The more compatible bands/frequencies a phone has, the greater likelihood of service. That said, the phone does not need to be compatible with all of the bands/frequencies in order for it to work with the Fido/Rogers networks. Access to the networks would depend on the bands/frequencies of the surrounding towers. Not all of the towers use all of the bands/frequencies.
Hope this helps

I have a fully unlocked Ulefone Armor 2 but seems I can only connect to 3g data. Just wondering if there are other options I am missing to enter to get it working on here, I see many options in mobile network settings, I have my prefered to be 4g/3g/2g nd enhanced 4g LTE mode activated but I never connect to these networks just wondering if anyone has some insight to this issue. Thanks!
Have you verified whether the phone has the necessary compatible bands/frequencies? You can verify those at the beginning of this thread.
Have you verified that the phone is using the proper APN settings? If the phone is LTE-capable, it should be using ltemobile.apn. You can verify the proper settings here. You should also verify that the APN includes the MMSC, MMS Proxy, and MMS Port settings.
Hope this helps :Smiley:
Hello, I'm thinking of buying Xiaomi Mi 9 which was announced and should come out very soon.
From what I've seen on the internet, I should support LTE bands 4, 7 and 12 but not 17.
On a previous post, you said LTE band 12 is used by Fido in certain provinces. Is it used in QC and more precisely in Montreal ?
From what I see, using this phone shouldn't be a problem at all, even though it's missing band 17. Am I right ?
Thank you !
We're not able to provide the exact regional breakdown of which provinces are covered by this LTE band. We also cannot confirm 100% guaranteed service on non-Fido phones. That being said, if you're phone is compatible with Band 4 and or Band 7, the LTE should work well.
