I read that Rogers network band are:
Will my unlocked AT&T phone have 3G and 4G on Rogers' network?
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
I am planning to get an unlocked smartphone from Hong Kong when I go back in January. What are the frequency band that the phone needs in order for me to use 3g data here? I am using Omnia i900 right now, which only allow me to use EDGE, and I found it really slow ><
I currently live in China and purchased a phone that works on GSM 900 1800 1900, WCDMA 2100. I wondered if this is at all compatible with Roger's networks in order to get 3G/4G speeds.
Any help is appreciated.
Rogers does not use WCDMA 2100. It uses GSM 900 1800 1900. You will ONLY get EDGE on the phone with Rogers.
Thanks for the prompt reply.
So how about these specifications?
Network frequency 2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz; 3G: WCDMA 850/900/1700/1900/2100MHz penta-band global roaming Data services GPRS, EDGE, WCDMA, support China Unicom HSPA + 21Mbps speed Internet access
I'm hoping you guys can help me out... I want to buy the new Sony Xperia Z and use it with Rogers. I'm just wondering if all the different protocols will be supported (GSM/UMTS/HSPA+/LTE). From the Sony website, the Xperia Z supports:
UMTS/HSPA+ Bands 1, 3, 5, 8 (850/900/1800/2100)
LTE Bands 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 20 (850/900/1800/2100/2600)
Can you see any problems I might encounter with the phone on Rogers' network?
*Sidenote: I called Rogers tech support to ask for an official word on the supported frequences and after 15 minutes of searching, the agent consulted another department for the info... He said he'd email me the document but I haven't received anything... Way to go Rogers!
I can confirm that we do have the 850,1900 and 2600 Mhz frequency bands on our network however we would not be able to comment on the operation of a non-Rogers device 😞
