Will Sony Xperia SP LTE C5303 work on the Koodo Network?


Hello, I'm thinking of buying this phone online: http://www.expansys.ca/sony-xperia-sp-lte-c5303-unlocked-white-248652/ Specs: HSDPA 850 / 900 / 2100 LTE 800 / 850 / 900 / 1800 / 2100 / 2600 ----------------------------------------------------------- However Im not sure if it will work because Koodo works on HSPA 850/1900 and LTE 1700/2100 but this phone seems to have only two of those, HSDPA 850 and LTE 2100. Is there a difference between HSPA and HSDPA? Does this mean it wont work? does it need to have all 4 diffferent frequencies in order to work? I tried inputing an IMEI number of an xperia sp i found on youtube and the koodo compatability check tool says it works but im not sure?: -------------------------------------------------------- Your IMEI - 356604051110301 XPERIA SP C5303 Your device should work on our Network. --------------------------------------------------------- Thank you so much!

Primarily for HSPA koodo favors the 850mhz band so you should at least get good coverage although in some small areas which I can't name, you may have issues. Same with LTE but truth be told, unless you're streaming movies and playing massive online multi-player intensive games, you could shut lte off and still have a great experience. I don't think you'll miss it really.

In addition to Chad's comments, the Experia comes unlocked as far as I know, so you will save on that too. Ask koodo for the 10% off your monthly plan discount for bringing your phone.
