Re: Rogers Frequencies

@dannylam1  

 

Just did a quick glance from Google on the posted bands and frequencies, and there is no reason why you shouldn't be getting the full 4g lte on your phone, but wonder if you have a full LTE supported SIM.

 

Just a thought.  Maybe someone with more knowledge of the frequencies can help.

 

Have you called Rogers and asked for wireless tech support - they may be able to assist, but one limitation may be that you do not have a Rogers branded phone - some of them may not support you for that reason, but worth a try.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Will my Huawei P10 Lite work with Rogers LTE network?

 

Hi I wanted to buy a new phone but wasn't sure if it would work in Canada since its not sold here. On the best buy site the specs say this:

4FDD LTE: Band 2/4/5/7/28 UMTS (WCDMA) / HSPA+ / DC-HSDPA: Band 1/2/4/5/8 GSM / EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz Secondary SIM card: GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz

 

(http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/huawei-p10-lite-32gb-smartphone-graphite-black-unlocked/10668894...)

 

However, on other sites theres also conflicting information about the network (although not from seller):

  LTE band 1(2100), 3(1800), 5(850), 7(2600), 8(900), 20(800)

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello @blbp,

 

Welcome to the Rogers Forums.

 

Your Huawei P10 Lite should be compatible with Rogers LTE network. However,  we can't guarantee you that it is entirely functional since the phones you are looking to purchase is not officially supported by Rogers.

 

You can review the Rogers LTE APN Settings here.

 

Cheers,

RogersCilio

requency range Band number Protocol
1900 MHz PCS 2 UMTS/HSPA+ 21Mbit/s
700 MHz Lower A/B/C 12/17/13 LTE
1700/2100 MHz AWS 4 LTE
2600 MHz IMT-E 7 LTE

 

I wouldn't suggest that phone, 3G/HSPA Rogers uses 1900mhz, that phone won't support HSPA on Rogers, and only supports 2 LTE bands. You Need 3G/HSPA to make voice calls/sms messaging.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

My Phone only supports Rogers 2600Mhz LTE (Band 7).  Is that a problem?

 

I have a phone that only supports Rogers LTE band 7 frequency (2600Mhz).  My phone does not support the other LTE frequencies supported by Rogers.  Will this be a problem for my phone?   Meaning, is there a chance i could lose connectivity often since it doesnt have the other fallback frequencies?

 

Thanks for the details.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello @ghytytty

Which phone is this? Also yes at times, you will have issues as it won't have another band or network to fall back on and disconnect you from everything. Meaning you won't get service and be stuck until u get that band back.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Does Rogers support UMTS on 850/1900 or is that for HSPA+ Only?

 

Can u educate me on this.  I have a phone that supports UMTS but not HSPA+ ... it says it supports freq 850/900/1900/AWS but since the protocol is UMTS and not HSPA+ i am wondering if it is supported by Rogers.

 

And lastly, is HSPA+ faster than UMTS?

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hi @ghytytty,

 

What phone are you attempting to use?  I have a feeling it should work, however as @RogersCilio mentioned earlier in the thread, all of the functions may not be 100% compatible. 

 

To answer your other question, HSPA+ is essentially an upgrade to UMTS, so it should be slightly faster.

 

More information can be found here.

 

I hope this helps!

 

Kind regards,

RogersShaun
