The Fido network covers 33 million Canadians from coast to coast
Note that all LTE devices work on the 4G HSPA+ and EDGE networks.
What is LTE?
LTE, or “Long Term Evolution”, is the global gold standard in wireless network technology. Far superior to previous technologies such as 3G and 4G HSPA+, LTE delivers a faster, richer and smoother wireless internet experience than ever before. Now you can enjoy connectivity whenever and wherever you choose, comparable to wired internet access at home or the office. Easily download large files and upload to cloud storage, stream high-definition movies and video conference lag-free, plus play advanced online games and apps. Built to handle more users doing more complex things, LTE allows you to stay connected on your wireless device in ways you’ve only imagined.
What kind of speeds can I expect with LTE? ?
LTE is the fastest wireless network technology on the planet. Fido LTE devices are capable of maximum theoretical download speeds of up to 100 Mbps on the Fido LTE network.1 Typical download speeds range from 12 Mbps to 25 Mbps, or even up to 40 Mbps for select devices —comparable to wired internet connectivity at home or the office and significantly faster than any Canadian 4G HSPA+ wireless network. As device selection evolves, you will be able to take advantage of the full potential of the Fido LTE network and maximum theoretical speeds will increase to up to 150 Mbps.1 .
