Re: 4G LTE band 2 (1900) and band 4 AWS(1700/2100)

At your house it's fine, but if you go to a shopping mall, airport, hospital, the PATH, or other major venues, you'll notice the difference.

Re: 4G LTE band 2 (1900) and band 4 AWS(1700/2100)

If I were looking for a phone, does this sound like the most current information (May 2020) on Frequency Bands supported by Public Mobile?

 

3G

850 MHz, Band 5 (UMTS/ HSPA)

1900MHz, Band 2 (UMTS/ HSPA)

 

4G

1700/ 2100 MHz AWS, Band 4 (LTE/ LTE Advanced).
700 MHz A/B/C/E, Band 12/13/17/29 (LTE/ LTE Advanced).

 

Do I need to be concerned of:

2600 MHz, Band 7

2300 MHz, Band 40

Bands 2 and 5 are also used for LTE.

@hebegebe  Band 7 is important for LTE you should always look for a phone that has it

@hebegebe consider LTE bands 2, 5, 7. There's no B40 TDD in the network. The FDD version, B30, is available in some areas, but it's limited and not necessary.

@computergeek: I might be going against the popular opinion here, but if you're on a 3g plan, I would say that that the importance of LTE compatibility to be rather low.

 

Isn't is 3G speed on the LTE network?

@cnsultnt LTE still provides added network capacity and generally more consistent pings.
