Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello @cafekief,

 

As long as the device is functional and unlocked you should be able to use it with a Rogers SIM. If it is an unlocked device, you can test using your current Rogers SIM in the phone. 

 

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello, looking for some advice on buying a Redmi Note 8T.  Since I have had trouble with my Asus phone in rural areas, I wanted to check compatibility with the Rogers/AT&T Network.  Specs on the phone are as follows:

 2G: GSM B2/3/5/8,
 3G: WCDMA B1/2/4/5/8, 
 4G: FDD LTE B1/2/3/4/5/7/8/20/28; TDD LTE B38/40;
 
Is anyone able to confirm that this phone will work well with Rogers or suggest a different model that will?  Thanks!

Hello and welcome to our Community @blacknail.

 

I hope you are safe in this difficult time.

 

In regards to your inquiry, we cannot guarantee that any grey market, third party device will operate on our network. We always recommend getting a device directly from us if you're concerned about support, because we can't offer much in the way of support for third party devices.

 

However, one of our awesome Community members may have experience using this third-party device on Rogers Network can perhaps guide you. If so, please share!

 

Regards

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hi, I have a cottage in McGregor Bay, Ontario and the only internet available is with my Rogers service which is very intermittent if trees get wet etc.

I am a Ham operator and have a 50ft tower on the island and am considering purchasing an Outdoor 4G Cellular Router which I would mount on the tower.
https://www.outdoorrouter.com/product/america-outdoor-4g-cellular-router-dual-sim-card
If necessary, I would feed it with a Yagi antenna directed at your cell site. I need to know frequency bands used to ensure my Yagi is optimised for the correct band.

Can you tell my which LTE band is used from the two accessible sites from my location:

1: The Lafarge whitefish terminal (cement plant) (46 deg 01’15.06N 81 deg 44’35.50W)

2: Willisville Tower just north of White fish falls. (46 deg 07’42.97N 81 deg 44’31.16W)

Thanks for your help.

Andy

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello and welcome to our Community @VE3ORE!

 

While we don't directly support such setups, I can get you pointed in the right direction by answering your question. Both of these tower sites broadcast 2G, 3G and LTE frequencies.

 

The Rogers network uses the following bands:

 

GSM and UMTS

 

  • 850 MHz  
  • 1900 MHz 

 

LTE

  • 700MHz (Band 12)
  • 1900MHz (Band 2)
  • 1700/2100MHz (AWS, Band 4)
  • 2600MHz (Band 7)

I hope that helps!

 

Regards,

RogersCorey

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello @msebas

 

Thanks for your first post!


It's great that you are double checking the compatibility of the device before the purchase.

 

It is always important to check to see if a device will be compatible with the Frequency Bands of the country/provider. Please click the following link to see which Frequency Bands are compatible with the Rogers Network.

 

Bands B5, B2 on 3G and Bands B4, B7 on 4G are supported.

 

 

Cheers

Re: Rogers Frequencies

I am looking to purchase a Poco x3 nfc global version.  I have attached the bands in specs below.  I have also looked up the frequencies offered by Rogers.  I have also shared a pic with highlighted the ranges that are included with the Poco phone.  However,  I notice that the 700mhz (Band 12) of 4g is not included in this phone and I want to know how limiting that will be.  I would love to see a colour coded map showng where 700mhz is necessary. I live in Arborg Manitoba (gps location shown below).  How detrimental is it to my new phone if it does not have the 700mhz range?20.11.28 poco specs.PNG20.11.28 gps coordinates.PNG20.11.28 coverage for poco.PNG

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello, @jayewert

 

Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums!

 

Thanks so much for your detailed post. I know how important it is to ensure a device is going to work on the network before purchasing. 

 

Based on the information you've provided if it is just the B12(700) frequency that it is missing then it SHOULD work on the Rogers network. We do have to advise you that we cannot guarantee all of the device features will work as expected as this device was not tested on our network. Features like Wi-Fi Calling or VoLTE specifically may have issues if it is not a Rogers device.

 

I hope this helps you in your decision making process.
