Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hi kco

Thanks for that exhaustive explanation of your process to get your device to work. I definitely do not have much time to waste….I will most probably go with the ZTE device.

Thanks again, Michael

Unlocked phone


Hi I am buying an unlocked cell phone and it has the following frequencies:


2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz
3G: WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100MHz
4G: FDD-LTE 800/900/1800/2100/2600MHz


Will this work on the Rogers network?

OnePlus 3 Compatibility




I am planning to purchase a OP3 from Hong Kong (Europe/Asia model) with the following connectivity specs:


Network: GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz
WCDMA: Bands 1/2/5/8
FDD-LTE: Bands 1/3/5/7/8/20
TDD-LTE: Bands 38/40
Just wondering if it will work with Rogers and more importantly if I will get LTE connectivity?
Thanks in advance

Rogers Frequency Compatibility with a Chinese Smartphone




I am thinking of importing a Chinese smartphone but I am wondering if it will work with Rogers Wireless with the following frequencies of the Chinese smartphone:


2G: GSM 900/1900/2100MHz

3G: WCDMA 900/2100MHz
4G: FDD-LTE 800/1800/2100/2600MHz

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Something to consider with frequencies is whether the phone covers LTE band 17 i.e. 700 mHz.  Rogers has, and continues, to roll that service out in many areas.  The lower frequencies are better for pentetrating obstacles such as trees and cover longer distances than the higher frequencies.  So theoretically the 700 MHz band may be better in fringe areas, providing Rogers has deployed it in the area.  I'm don't have a strong knowledge of the technology but I think that is the case.


As long as it were not too much more money I personally would look for a phone that includes the 700 MHz in its frequencies.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

 KCO, Very good discription of how this works. 


  As a Construction Manager for the Rogers recent upgrades, I have seen a lot change in the last 15 years. The 700 mHz is one of the better changes for the long distance LTE while the 2100 & 2600 LTE cover high speed and capacity in the densely populated areas. Since the 700 Band 17 is new it is not covered in some stats but here is a link to what is compatible to most of Rogers Wireless. More changes will be coming in the next 2 years.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

I am planning to buy a Xiaomi RedMi 3 Pro Prime.  Before I proceed, I need to makre sure if that phone is compatible with the Roger's network.  That phone uses the following network frequencies

2G: GSM 900/1800/1900MHz
3G: WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100MHz; CDMA 2000: BC0
4G: FDD-LTE 1800/2100/2600MHz


I don't know too much about phones and network frequencies but do all the numbers have to match?  (e.g. for 4G only the 2600MHz is compatible with Roger?)
