[b]CONNECTIVITY ( Networks ) ALL LIST for [b]Huawei Mate 9 : http://www.devicespecifications.com/en/model/810b3f6a

[b]On the website " Will My Phone Work ? " this mobile phone is not included !
But I look for it on this website of Telus network and it gives me this models : CLICK HERE !
I don't know exactly which one is it. The one I want to buy ( the link in the title ) it says,... it has INTERNATIONAL FIRMWARE. It might be this model ( Released 2016, December ) but I am not sure : http://www.gsmarena.com/huawei_mate_9-8073.php

Is Koodo working together with Telus ? ... https://www.frequencycheck.com/carriers/telus-canada

I know that Telus uses for LTE network : B4 (1700/2100 AWS 1)

Koodo has for LTE : Band4-AWS ... is that Band4 means B4 and the AWS means the frequency 1700/2100 AWS 1 ???

Is this correct ? Telus ( including Koodo ) : 

CDMA 850/1900 
EVDO 850/1900 

3G (and fake 4G) 
HSDPA 850/1900 
HSPA+ 850/1900 
UMTS 850/1900 
WCDMA 850/1900 
1x EV-DO CDMA2000 

4G (called 4G+) 
LTE 1700/2100

Here is one advert where the person says that this cell phone works on Rogers, Fido, Chat-R, Bell, Virgin, Telus, Koodo, Wind and Mobilicity, but doesn't say if it works on LTE network : CLICK HERE !

Anyone who have this [b]Huawei Mate 9, please can you tell me what this mobile phone is capable of and if it's ok with Koodo to get 4G LTE network ?

Thanks !

Koodo uses 850/1900 for 3G, Band 4 (1700/2100) for LTE and Band 7 (2600) for LTE-a.
By the sounds of it, (looking at the top specs), your phone will be fine.
