iPhone 5 GSM or HSPA confusion.

I'm looking at buying an iPhone 5 off ebay. I've noticed that most are GSM phones. example : http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-iPhone-5-32GB-Black-FACTORY-UNLOCKED-ANY-GSM-SIM-T-MOBILE-AT-T-S146-/111312852679?pt=Cell_Phones&hash=item19eac356c7 If I buy this will it work on Koodo's network. I'm confused about HSPA and such.

Yes, HSPA is what we know as "3G". It will work. Taken from the page: GSM/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900 UMTS/HSPA+ / DC-HSDPA 850/900/1900/2100 LTE 4/17 A phone needs the HSPA 850/1900 to work with Koodo so you're fine.
Thanks so much for the help, Jonathan.

Those LTE bands should work as well.
