Default Note 3 has no lte option?

Hi guys I recently got myself a note 3 with videotron here in Canada

I know videotron does not have lte yet but on my phone I don't even have that option

All I have is
WCDMA/GSM(auto connect)
WCDMA ONLY
GSM ONLY

My friend has does same options but has also the LTE option available

My note 3 is a sm-n900w8

Thanks

It depends if your carrier has 4G as I am on Three network UK and I too dont have the LTE option because 4G not out in my area yet but when I changed sim to O2 who already have 4G the LTE option appears.

If you're already rooted go to data/property ,find the persist.radio.lteon.xml file. Open it in Text Editor and if the value that is written is false, change it to true. Save and exit and reboot. Thats it

If you don't know it means you're not
If bought directly from Vidéotron and no modification has been done to your device, you're not rooted

Any benefits being rooted? Is it like being jailbroken.?

Rooting has many benefits. The main reason I do it is to uninstall all the bloatware that Samsung saddles you with. My Note 3 came with 25+ useless apps that I can't delete. That's not even counting the 7 that T-Mobile sticks on here. Most of them don't run all the time, but a few do. Like Magazine and the also useless Samsung Siri knockoff. I just use Google voice instead. Another advantage to rooting it would be all the customization options that you would have.
