I'm looking at a new phone, Padfone Infinity actually

Now will it work with the Koodo network? Here are the specs...

GSM/EDGE/GPRS:850/900/1800/1900Mhz(Class 10)
3G/WCDMA/UMTS :850/900/1900/2100 Mhz(DC-HSPA+,DL:42 Mbit/s/UL:5.76 Mbit/s)
4G/LTE:800/1800/2600 Mhz (DL:150 Mbit/s/UL:50 Mbit/s)

I see there is 4G LTE coverage in my area...but just want to be sure :)
Thanks a bunch :)

While in North America Koodo phones are compatible with HSPA 850/1900 MHZ frequencies. With that being said I'm going to assume yes.

Agreed. The frequency matches, so it should work.

Okay so if I colaberate all the answers ....

This phone will work under the 3G - HSPA network, but not the 4G , due to different frequencies?

Just before I spend $1000 I want to make sure this will work.

Thnaks a bunch :)

Correct. The phone won't be able to take advantage of 4G LTE on Koodo's network.
