Hi,

I am interested Asus Zenfone 3 zoom. Which supports network

2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz
3G: WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100MHz

Yes. You'll have 3G voice and data and you'll mostly have LTE via 2600mhz and maybe the others as well. You can look at LTE-A on Koodo's coverage map to see where you'll have LTE.

For future reference you can use willmyphonework.net to see if just about any phone will work with just about any carrier.

You seemed to list HSDPA as 4G.

Eh, from this https://www.gsmarena.com/asus_zenfone_3_zoom_ze553kl-8509.php
The Taiwan version is okay for 3G and talk. However, For LTE, it doesn't have band 4, It has band 2,5,7 though. So you might not get the full LTE coverage depending on areas.

But according to that website USA version will support LTE network which is really surprising for me.

Why is it surprising that the American version would support LTE in North America?

I always think doesn't matter which version it is, it supports same network frequency.

For 3G, it used to be easy, as there are around  4-6 common bands. However, for LTE, the number is like 30+, it would be tough for them to build a "global LTE phone"

The US version should have no issue operating on Koodo's network.

US / BR version:

FDD-LTE (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 17, 28) 4G LTE - AWS Band 4 1700/2100 MHz, Band 7, 2600 MHz, if or when Koodo decides to deploy VoLTE. The phone is VoLTE capable.

WCDMA (Bands 1, 2, 4, 5, 8) 3G - 850 MHz & 1900 MHz

GSM (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz) 2G - not used by Koodo
