Calgary - does it only use the 700 Mhz band for LTE or 2600 Mhz as well?

Hello,

 

Rogers LTE Page shows usage for the 700 Mhz band.

vhttp://www.rogers.com/web/content/wireless_network?asc_refid=lte

 

Calgary is in there, but not mention of the 2600 Mhz band.

 

Does that mean Calgary is only served by the 700 Mhz band?

 

This is about the 2600Mhz band

But Calgary is not mentioned.

 

I have a Lumia 930 and not getting LTE - but I do see the 4g Icon - speeds area bout 18 mbps - not as much as I suspected.

 

Thanks,

 

Mr. V

The 700Mhz is the new network, I presume Rogers has alreay a LTE netwok there before. You should look at this website with your postal code and see wichi towers Rogers has there http://www.ertyu.org/steven_nikkel/cancellsites.html

 

The 930 is for markets outside North America and so it shows 4G for LTE. I have a french one and it shows 4G for LTE and H+ pour HSDPA+ where a 920 was showing LTE and 4G for HSPDA+ ...

Thanks Mattieugd - there are three towers within a couple of blocks fo me all 2600mhz. Getting rates of about 20 Mbps down/up - with the 4g signal. Is that about correct?

you guys with the 930 need to realize your 4G is LTE and on the 2600 band. If you flashed a different rom to your phone like finland or mylasia it would show as LTE. most of the 930's are from Hong Kong which the rom displays 4G as the LTE signal.
