Rogers Frequencies

I've been here awhile

I'm about to purchase an unlocked AT&T phone with the following frequency band:

  • 2G Network GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
  • 3G Network HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100
  • 4G Network LTE 700 MHz Class 17 / 1700 / 2100

I read that Rogers network band are:

  • 2G Network GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
  • 3G Network HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100
  • 4G Network LTE 1700 / 2100 / 2600


Will my unlocked AT&T phone have 3G and 4G on Rogers' network?

Will this phone work on the Rogers network?  The manufacturer says no based on the bands.  I'm not so sure.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello @jimaginet@DominicB


@jimaginet Welcome to the Forums and I apologize for the late reply!


You should be able to use your non-Rogers phone, as it is compatible with some of Rogers' frequencies. Howeverwe can't guarantee you that you get access to our LTE network.  


@DominicB Although I'm not familiar with this equipment, according to the band, it should be compatible with Rogers network, however, as previously stated we can't guarantee a non rogers device will work.


You can find more information here: Rogers LTE APN Settings


Anyone else in the community have experience with the desktop cellular phone?

Will a Moto G4 Plus unlocked phone from the USA work ok on Rogers?

Here's the Canadian Moto G Plus version's specs:


4G LTE (Cat 4)
Bands (by model)

Moto G Plus - XT1641
GSM (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
UMTS / HSPA+ (850, 900, 1700, 1900, 2100 MHz)
4G LTE (B2, B3, B4, B5, B7, B12, B17, B28)
Band coverage varies by model, country, and carrier.

Here's the unlocked USA version's specs:


4G LTE (Cat 4)
Bands (by model)

Moto G Plus - XT1644
CDMA (850, 1900 MHz)
GSM / GPRS / EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
UMTS / HSPA+ (850, 900, 1700, 1900, 2100 MHz)
4G LTE (B1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 25, 26, 41)
Band coverage varies by model, country, and carrier.

The USA version (XT1644) lacks LTE bands 17 and 28.

Would that be a problem with Rogers for data or voice?


What if the USA phone didn't have a data plan under Rogers, just voice?

Would that work?

Re: Rogers Frequencies

I plan to stick around

After looking through some of these posts,  it seems the USA phone is only lacking LTE Band 17 as far as Rogers is concerned. It has the other 700mhz Band 12, and all the other LTE Bands (and all the other protocols as far as I can tell.)


So I guess I'm asking just how would the lack of Band 17 play out in real world in Rogers Canada ??

Re: Rogers Frequencies


Hello, @brucelazerte


Thank you for posting your query in the Community. As you are aware Rogers network uses GSM, UMTS, HSPA and HSPA+ at 850 MHz and 1900 MHz, or LTE technology at 2100/2600 MHz AWS. So any unlocked phone which has the compatible frequencies shall work, however, we can't guarantee the performance the unlocked device.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Good afternoon @Bombelkie & @sawhcale,


Thank you for your posts.


You should both technically be able to use your unlocked device, as the Band 7 is compatible with Rogers' network. We, however, cannot assure you that it is entirely functional since the phones you are looking to purchase are not officially supported by Rogers.


When using a "non-Rogers" phone, don't forget to make sure you have the appropriate Rogers LTE APN Settings!


Don't hesitate to let us know if you have any other questions Smiley Wink



Re: Rogers Frequencies

I've been here awhile

Hi all!


I am thinking of buying a new phone from another country.  From my understanding, Rogers (and other Canadian carriers) offers the following LTE bands:


Band 4 (1700/2100 MHz)

Band 7 (2600 MHz)

Band 12 (700 MHz)


Out of these 3 bands, the phone I am interested only has Band 7.  Will this be an issue?

(The phone I am interseted is the Mi Max).

Hello @ZCKel

Welcome to the forums!

Indeed that will work on Rogers network :). You should be fine.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Thanks @Meowmix!


I am wondering will I experience frequent downgrades from LTE to 3G?  i.e. How good is the coverage of Band 7? I believe Band 4 is the "primary" band... right?  I am in Metro Vancouver.

Should it be working?

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Did you set up the Rogers LTE APN?

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello I'm considering the purchase of a BLU Life One X2 for my next phone. I'm not sure what bands Rogers uses but the one X2 uses: 

Technology GSM / HSPA / LTE
2G bands GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
3G bands HSDPA 850 / 1700(AWS) / 1900 / 2100
4G bands LTE band 2(1900), 4(1700/2100), 7(2600), 12(700), 17(700)
Speed HSPA 42.2/11.5 Mbps, LTE Cat4 150/50 Mbps



Would someone be able to tell me if I can use this phone on the Rogers network? 



Re: Rogers Frequencies

Rogers does us the 4G band 7 so you should be good.
Since it is not a Rogers phone, be sure to add the Rogers LTE Access Point Name

Re: Rogers Frequencies

I purchased REDMI 3S phone in India. Will this phone work on Rogers Network. The phone has below network bands:


Network bands

4G   FDD-LTE  B3/B5
        TDD-LTE  B40 

3G   WCDMA  900MHz / 2100MHz

2G   GSM  900MHz / 1800MHz


Please let me know if this works or not.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Good evening @SIVAPRAS329,


Welcome to the Forums!


From the information provided, the device described would grant you access to voice calls.


We unfortunately cannot guarantee that you get access to data transmissions and/or to our LTE network.


Please visit this page for more information on the use of a non-Rogers device, on our network.



Re: Rogers Frequencies



I have a Xiaomi Mi5 with a LTE compatible band (Band 7) but I am only getting 3g/ HSPA (I did setup the Rogers APN)


Is there good Band 7 coverage in Calgary? Thanks!

Re: Rogers Frequencies

I just received my Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 this week and am still playing with it. 

The HSPA (H+) is the 4G network. So if you are seeing this it means that you are on the 4G band 7.

If you keep bouncing between bands, go into your sim card in the settings, and manually select mobile network, instead of having the phone select what is preferred. If you set it to Rogers 4G you will stick there, unless you are on wifi.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Screenshot (217).pngI would like to know if europe/asia model is supported by rogers network.I see only LTE band 7 being supported.Is that sufficient?
