Rogers Frequencies

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?

 

Thanks

Hi all, 

 

I'm recently thinking of purchasing a smartphone from Asia and using it here in Toronto. From the specs sheet I looked up on Internet im pretty sure it will work, but the only concern is about LTE compatibility. Please correct me if I'm wrong (either frequency and/or band) that Rogers uses FDD-LTE with 1700(band 4), 2100 and 2600(band 7), aka AWS, plus the newly-acquired 700 (band 17).

 

Now the connectivity spec of the phone as follows:

 

GSM:  850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz

UMTS:  850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz

FDD-LTE:  700 (band 28), 900 (band 8), 1800 (band 3), 2100 (band 1), 2600 (band 7) MHz

TDD-LTE:  2300 (band 40), 2500 (band 41), 2600 (band 38) MHz

 

even tho it supports both type of LTE, let's just leave out the TDD-LTE here because it obviously won't work with Rogers, so, based on the FDD-LTE spec listed above, does anyone know if such said phone will work smoothly with Rogers' LTE network? Also, got a quick question, if a phone indeed covers the LTE frequency/bands Rogers uses, would it matter between (A) only one band cover, eg. 2600(band 7) , versus (B) two or more bands being covered, eg. 2600(band 7) and 2100(band 1), or more? 

 

Really appreciate any anwser from all you folks out there!! Thanks in advance!!

My family sent me a phone from overseas, a Xiaomi Redmi Note. Does it work on Rogers network? I don't think it works on Telus because I put in a Telus sim and it said no service. The freq it support is listed as:

 

2G Network GSM 900 / 1800 / 1900 - SIM 1 & SIM 2
3G Network HSDPA 900 / 2100

 

I don't care so much about data right now, just voice. It's a really nice phone and I don't want to waste it.

I should add when I did a network scan, it picked up one thing "Rogers 2G", but it said "restricted" beside it and I couldn't connect to it. Not sure if it's because I had a Telus sim in it at the time.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

In the end, the # of bands SHOULD generally matter.. mostly.

The different bands, have different frequency strenghts, etc.... so if you only have one of the possible, if you are in an area where say that one particularily doesnt reach, but one of the others does... you might not have service, but the next guy might who does have both available.

 

@ 

You should get EDGE connection just fine.. i THINK it looks like you should get some 3G at least with it.

@Gdkitty

 

thanks for the reply first of all, so from the scenario u presented, basically a conclusion could be made that with more bands compatible, the greater the area being covered, right? (if we put aside the fact that different bands with different penetration rates and covered area), and from that point on it all comes down to HSPA+ or next tier connectivity? say, if such phone compatible with common north american HSPA bands, then the only thing being affected might just be the LTE part, with possibly less coverage and weaker signals eh?

thanks again for the reply, really appreciate it!

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello, I am consider to purchase a new phone without contract, there are two models that I would like to compare, could I get help on which one, two or none of them will work on Roger's LTE? I am at WInnipeg which has LTE on my current phone.

 

Option 1:

Huawei Ascend P7 L00: FDD-LTE:B1(2100MHz)/B3(1800MHz)

 

Option 2:

OnePlus One: FDD-LTE:2100 / 1800 / 2600

Does Rogers support FDD-LTE 2100 frequencie? If I look at other cellphone come with LTE 2100 or 2600, could I assume that cellphone will work under Roger's LTE eniverment?

 

Thanks all for your help.

i was wondering if these specs will work on Rogers

 

UMTS HSPA+ 850 (Band V), 900 (Band VIII), 1700 (Band IV), 1900 (Band II), 2100 (Band I) MHz
GSM GPRS/EDGE 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz
LTE (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 17, 20) 

 

Thanks

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Been reading some posts here and if I understand correctly Rogers supports:

 

GSM 850/1900

HSDPA and WCDMA 850/1900

 

But what if the phones I'm looking at says:

This phone will only work with 2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz 3G: WCDMA 850/2100MHz

 

Am I correct in thinking that if it has ONE or TWO of the frequencies then it will work?  If yes, then in this case above, will 3G at 850 be slower than 3G at 1900MHz?  

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hey all there is an Android device for sale online but I'm not sure if it would work with Rogers, I've checked other forum posts. Here's the list of frequencies it supports:

 

  • Network: 4G: LTE 1800/2600 MHz / 3G: 850/900/2100 MHz / GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz

From what I can tell, regular phone calls would work but what about 3G and data?

  • 2G Network: GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
  • 3G Network: HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100
  • 4G Network: LTE 700 / 800 / 900 / 1800 / 2100 / 2300 / 2600

It doens't work on Rogers LTE 700 /2600.   Could you advice/comments.

Hi,

 

I am looking for Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4" LTE tablet. Unfortunately Rogers only carries 10.5" version. I am planning to buy from Hong Kong. Below is the the network specs:

GSM850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900,

HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100,

LTE 850 / 2100

 

Will it work with the Rogers phone system?

 

Thanks for you help.

Hello Mike2014

Thank you for the quick reply.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello,

 

I looking to get this Phone

 

LANDVO L200G MTK6582  http://www.gearbest.com/cell-phones/pp_69573.html

 

I would need to know if this spec will work on Rogers Network 4G and 3G cause I need to have email on that device.

 

- 4G: FDD-LTE, 1800MHz, 2600MHz
- 3G: WCDMA 850MHz, WCDMA 900MHz, WCDMA 1900MHz, WCDMA 2100MHz
- 2G: GSM 850MHz, GSM 1800MHz, GSM 1900MHz

 

From  what I am reading 2600mhz will work as it' the new LTE from Rogers as off May 2013 but do we have to pay Extra for that or it will work as is.

 

Thnaks 🙂

Hey so I am in the process of purchasing a Sony Z3 Compact D5803 from the US to use here on Rogers (the phone is unlocked). Just wondernig if it will work with Rogers 2g/3g/4g(lte) bands.

 

The phone works with 

2G Network GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900

3G Network HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 - D5803

4G Network LTE 700/800/850/900/1700/1800/1900/2100/2600 - D5803

 

Can anyone provide information on what bands Rogers deploys?

 

Thank you!

Re: Rogers Frequencies

I Plan to Stick Around

2G GSM:  850 and 1900

3G UTMS/HSPA:  850 and 1900

4G LTE:  band 4 (AWS [1700/2100]), band 7 (2600), band 17 (700)

 

So that phone should work on all frequencies that Rogers deploys.

Hello mlarco52

It should work on Rogers as they have the same frequencies!!:)

Hi everyone. Need some advice. I found this particular phone on GSMARENA.COM and was wondering if it will work on Rogers whether it be 2G, 3G or LTE or all frequencies. I have read that some of the frequencies (1700, 2100, 2600 etc) may match the Rogers frequencies but may not work if the band number (1, 3, 7, 38, 39, 40 etc) don't also match up. Am I correct? The phone I found lists the following specs on GSMARENA:

 

2G Network: GSM 900 / 1800 / 1900 - all versions

 

3G Network:  HSDPA 900 / 2100 (for the A808 version of the phone)

3G Network: TD-SCDMA 1880-2010 (for the A808T version of the phone)

 

4G Network:  LTE 1800 / 2100 (Bands 1, 3)  (A806 version)

4G Network: TD-LTE 1900 / 2300 / 2600 (Band 38, 39, 40)  (A808T version)

So what are your thoughts? Will either version, either A808T or A806 work? Thanks in advance!
