Hi

It would be helpful if there was a sticky (unless i missed it) to show what frequencies each of our mobile service providers use. This would be helpful for people who are importing phones made for other markets.

Could people help me gather those information . i can then list them here .

Thanks



2 Degress

The 2degrees network works on 900/1800 MHz (GSM/GPRS), 2100/900 MHz (WCDMA/HSDPA) frequencies and 1800/700 MHz (4G/LTE)

Vodafone NZ

The Vodafone NZ network works on 900/1800 MHz (GSM/GPRS), 2100/900 MHz (WCDMA/UMTS/HSDPA) frequencies and 2600/1800/700 MHz (4G/LTE) 

Telecom NZ

The Telecom NZ network works on 2100/850 MHz (WCDMA/UMTS/HSDPA) frequencies and 1800/700 MHz (4G/LTE)




Please let me know if they are incorrect

As far as I know

2degrees: 900/1800 GSM, 900/2100 UTMS, 1800LTE

Telecom: 850/2100 UTMS, 1800LTE (700LTE to launch soon)

Vodafone 900 GSM (not sure if 1800 is still used for GSM - used to be), 900/2100 UTMS, 1800/2600 LTE (700LTE to launch soon)

LTE 700 is band 28.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

If it's going to be sticky'd, it should probably be moved to the handsets forum, as these are not Android specific frequencies.

You can edit the posts as many times as you want within a certain time. After this time passes you can't edit anymore.

Not because it's "not a good forum app" but because we want it this way.

coffeebaron: LTE 700 is band 28.

You have to put this in there. Do not just put 700mhz. Put 700mhz APT (band 28 only).
This will help with people searching and getting confused, because USA and other non APT 700mhz devices won't work here.

andrewcnz: Don't Telecom also use LTE 2600 and 2 Degrees have EDGE on there 900/1800 GSM band 

Yes.

Both telecom and vodafone have 2600mhz. 2degrees has licence to use this band but hasn't deployed it.
Telecom has LTE Carrier Aggregation enabled between 1800 and 2600mhz for higher speed in some areas, on devices that support it. You should mention this.
Vodafone hasn't yet enabled this.

Please list devices that support it that are for sale and can be purchased from any provider / shop in NZ?
