I currently have absolutely no signal (phone or internet) on my cell phone (iphone6s) inside a workplace dome garage so I would like to buy a "signal amplifier" for the place but it seems different units use different "band" signals. These signal amplifiers are actually pretty expensive so before purchasing one, I would need to know which band signals are used by Fizz so I don't have to buy 2 or 3 different $150-$250 units before getting the right one for me. Thank you.

    Hi David R. 25648

    Fizz uses these frequencies

    For an LTE-compatible phone configured with LTE network preferences:

    • Calls: Your device must support HSPA 850 MHz
    • Mobile data: Your device must have dual-frequency support for 1700/2100 MHz (also called AWS or band IV)


    For a phone that only allows 3G or HSPA preferred:

    • Calls and / or mobile data: The phone must support the 1700/2100 MHz frequency (also called AWS)

    You can consult this map to see which cell towers and frequencies are used at your location: https://www.ertyu.org/steven_nikkel/cancellsites.html

    Note that Fizz primarily uses Videotron cell towers.

  • Ok, so I'll go with a band 4 unit I guess. Thanks for the help! Really appreciated! :)
