How to get LTE data on unlocked Blackberry Z30, on Koodo prepaid,


I have a Blackberry Z30 (STA100-5) that has quad band LTE/HSPA/UMTS, yet when data services turned on, I do not see any indication that anything but slower GSM is being used. How can I get LTE data working on the unlocked (bought from Blackberry) device (coverage map shows LTE around my home). I am on prepaid, with data booster.Thanks!

Hi John, Koodo prepaid works on LTE, in the area that you're at the phone might be picking up the slower data frequencies because they give off a stronger signal than the LTE frequencies do at the moment. You can always try power cycling your phone on and off to see if when it reconnects it picks up LTE vs HSPA.
Turns out that I just had to walk outside of my home, and it switched from GSM to LTE, do you are absolutely right. Thanks for the quick feedback!
