It’s safe to say Apple have some kick ass RF engineers working for them. Building phones with support for multiple bands and technologies isn’t simple, and it’s safe to say Apple have set a new benchmark with the iPhone6. No other phone on the market comes close to supporting the same number of 4G/LTE bands in a single device.
The iPhone6 and iPhone6 Plus include support for all GSM, 3G/WCMDA and LTE bands used in New Zealand. This includes the new 700Mhz 4G/LTE network (band 28) which is currently being deployed by both Vodafone and Telecom in New Zealand.
For reference the following bands are used in New Zealand by the various companies -
GSM 900Mhz & 1800Mhz, 3G/UMTS/HSPA+ 900Mhz and 2100Mhz, 4G/LTE 700Mhz (band 28), 1800Mhz (band 3), 2600Mhz (band 7)
3G/UMTS/HSPA+ 850Mhz and 2100Mhz, 4G/LTE 700Mhz (band 28), 1800Mhz (band 3), 2600Mhz (band 7)
GSM 900Mhz & 1800Mhz, 3G/UMTS/HSPA+ 900Mhz and 2100Mhz., 4G/LTE 1800Mhz (band 3). 2degrees also own management rights for 700Mhz (band 28) but have not yet deployed a network using this band.
