How do I know if my phone will work on the Public Mobile network?

Public Mobile works on following frequencies: 

  • For 3G use (UMTS/HSPA): 850MHz/1900MHz bands
  • For 4G/LTE use: 1700MHz/2100MHz bands
  • For 4G/LTE use: 700 MHz band

Which means most of the 3G,4G HSPA/ LTE phones that are compatible with these frequencies will work on Public Mobile. If your phone is locked to specific carrier, you’ll have to get it unlocked. 

 

Phones compatible with Telus, Koodo, Bell, Virgin will work on Public Mobile network. All 3G, 4G phones from Rogers, Fido and ChatR are compatible and will work on the Public Mobile network.

@hasni, should work but do note that those LTE bands are not for North America, so you will not be able to connect to LTE service here.

 

I would recommend you to spend a bit more ($250) and get this instead. You will also receive North American warranty: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16875220004&cm_re=ASUS_Zenfone_2-_-75-220-004-_-P...

Re: How do I know if my phone will work on the Public Mobile network?

Hello,

The phone has all the frequencies necessary to function on Public Mobile's network, including 4G LTE-Advanced, which is 700 MHz (Band 17).

I hope that this has answered your question.

Cheers.
