Re: LTE 2600Mhz vs 2100Mhz for Fido / Rogers. Why either or?

I don't know about the technical aspects of why 2600mhz offers faster speeds, but the Optimus G is the only phone in the North American market that supports the 2600mhz band as Bell and Rogers are the only ones who use that spectrum right now. There are several rocket stick/rocket hub products in the North American market that support it as well.

Thanks for the feedback. It's annoying that there are no 2600Mhz Android phones out there. I am also wondering if it's worth search more for a 2600Mhz phone vs a 2100Mhz. Though I would definitely enjoy the double speed

Phones from other nations will likely support 2600mhz as there are a handful of other countries that have deployed LTE on the 2600mhz band, however those phones likely will not support the AWS LTE bands. Therefore your LTE coverage will cut in and out a lot as 2600mhz footprint is not the same as the whole LTE footprint and it also does not fare as well with indoor signal pentration.
