Freedom Mobile to add two new LTE-enabled smartphones to its lineup


  • birdman_36

    That helps. The game will truly change if & when they carry the iPhone 8.

    • Techguru86

      IPhone 8 isn’t supporting band 66, so not this year lol

    • specialk2000

      How would you know whether or not the iPhone 8 is going to support band 66? Plus, wouldn’t all of the other carriers who invested in AWS3 in North America encourage Apple to add it for better performance on their networks?

  • dirtyKIMCHI

    Those specs don’t even list Band 66 LTE on either handset.

    • someone correct me if I’m wrong;

      isn’t B4(AWS) considered Band 66? I see it under LTE.

    • Bobboganush

      No, band 4 is aws-1 whereas band 66 is aws-3. Two different bands. And the A5 is already on Freedom Mobile’s site, so I would guess these specs on here are a little off.

    • dirtyKIMCHI

      Yup, as you stated, it is listed as Coming Soon now with these bands:

      LTE: B1/2/3/4/5/7/12/13/17/20/29/66
      UMTS: B1/2/4/5/8
      GSM: 850/900/1800/1900

    • dirtyKIMCHI

      Looks like someone at MS got around to correcting the listed bands. Thanks for correcting it finally.

  • Mark Griffin

    G6 launch date is listed as “February 26, 2017” ?

    Good news for anyone who is dumb enough to give up their current plan whether it’s an old plan or an everywhere plan with free Canada and usa roaming and switch to the LTE plan that has no free roaming plus you’d have to upgrade phone. No thanks for me,3G is good enough for me with my max speeds being 15.40mbps download and 4.70mbps upload I don’t need LTE or to lose my everywhere plan.

    • Do Do

      3g was always good enough. The problem that a lot of people don’t get from people I talk to is this doesn’t solve the real issue. If the network isn’t working for you where you frequent now, it’s still not going to work for you when you want to make a call. “No signal”is still no signal regardless of LTE. However if you’re lucky enough to be in a working area for the majority of your day then Freedom is the best option.

    • Brandon Arneson

      I guess their network is worse in Ontario than it is in Edmonton Alberta and the 5 surrounding cities but that could be because they haven’t done hardware upgrades in certain places which is what made my speeds so good ever since June2016 when the upgrades happened.

      LTE… Lose Totally Everything then…?
