Telus and TD-LTE Band 40

Hey guys. A lot of phones coming out of China these days have killer specs for a great price. I'm specifically referring to the Xiami Mi5.

Xiaomi.ca lists the phone as 2300 MHz LTE band 40 compatible. Wikipedia says telus also uses this frequency.

Am I correct in thinking this phone will get LTE on the Telus network in Canada? My work phone is on rogers and I want to take advantage of the dual sim.

Thanks guys

So this statement from Wikipedia is wrong?

Country Operator ƒ (MHz)
Canada Telus 1700
Canada Telus 2300
Canada Telus 3500

Never trust anything on Wikipedia 100%. Most information on there is from a random assortment of third party sources with little if any verification for accuracy.

 

1700 is the LTE standard nationwide.

2300 is likely reserved by Telus but not in use yet.

 

Government of Canada sites lack of available equipment is one reason 2300 has not been deployed in Canada.

 

Some light reading: Spectrum in the 2300 MHz Band (WCS)

Here is the Industry Canada spectrum allocation information

 

The 2500 MHz spectrum was recently auctioned, and not yet deployed.
