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-...

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.

Those LTE bands should work as well.
