I've put my order in for the Jolla tablet and have revisited the idea of getting a Jolla phone.

My main reluctance to getting the phone is it doesn't fully support Sparks frequencies.  So far as Spark frequencies go it only has 3G 2100 and LTE 1800 (band 3).

From what I can tell the 2100 3G coverage is mainly in the urban areas as is the LTE 1800.

Do any Geekzoners own a Jolla and can they give feedback on the coverage they get, or alternatively can anyone give their experience on the 2100 3G coverage?

Thanks

If there is no 850 on it then do not bother. Too useless coverage on spark if you have 2100 only. Its not just urban areas only, its the infill of urban areas.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll look at my second choice installing Jolla onto a another device.
