My son needs his first phone, and we're thinking of getting a Fairphone 2 https://shop.fairphone.com/en/ while in Europe. Would this phone be compatible on the Koodo network?

You require 850/1900 mhz to operate 3g. It has 900/1900/2100mhz which means that you have no guarantee of service. And likely none. There is lte advanced on 2600mhz but that will only guarantee you data where it is available as Koodo has not yet launched voice over LTE. I love the idea of the fairphone 2 but I don't think that it would be a good choice to buy for use in Canada just yet.

Take a look at

www.willmyphonework.net

while shopping. You'll have pull-down menus on each phone for European and North American carriers.
