Deployments by regionEdit

The following table shows the standardized LTE bands and their regional use. The main LTE bands are in bold print. Frequency bands for which future deployment and use is very unlikely are in italic print.

  • Networks on LTE-bands 7, 28 (FDD-LTE) are suitable for global roaming in ITU Regions 1, 2 and 3.
  • Networks on LTE-bands 1, 3 (FDD-LTE) are suitable for roaming in ITU Regions 1 and 3, Costa Rica and Brazil and partially in some Caribbean countries.
  • Networks on LTE-band 20 (FDD-LTE) are suitable for roaming in ITU Region 1 only.
  • Networks on LTE-band 5 (FDD-LTE) are suitable for roaming in ITU Regions 2 and 3.
  • Networks on LTE-bands 38, 40 (TDD-LTE) may allow global roaming in the future (ITU Regions 1, 2 and 3).
  • Networks on LTE-band 8 (FDD-LTE) may allow global roaming in the future (ITU Regions 1, 2 and 3).
  • Networks on LTE-bands 2 and 4 (FDD-LTE) are suitable for roaming in ITU Region 2 (Americas) only.
