[Q] 4G with LTE in Singapore

Hi,

All Guys in Singapore specially pay heed
I bought this lovely phone to be able to enjoy quad core for one and LTE data access. It seems that when I try to connect to the 4G LTE on Starhub (in Singapore), I only get 4G, not the LTE speeds.

Please correct me if I am wrong, that the e970 has 1700 and 2100 band for the LTE, while Singapore only has 1800 and 2600 bands available.

Is there any possibility of enabling 1800 and 2600 bands?

The local variant is the E975, can I flash the stock e975 firmware to the e970 without adverse effects?

2G Network GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
3G Network HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100
4G Network LTE 700 MHz Class 17 / 1700 / 2100

You can use 2G, not sure what the 3g band is in Singapore.

My quick search shows Singapore uses 2100 for 3g, so the phone will support it. However, you cannot add or enable new frequencies. The hardware does not support them unfortunately. Your local LTE is not compatible with the E970

You can use 3G/HSPA+, I was there last week and I was getting 5-6 Mbps using SingTel prepaid.

EDIT- No LTE, sadly. But 3G was enough for anything I'd do on my phone.

HI,

yes the HSPAP works quite well. Im on the StarHub network, I also get a decent data rate. But LTE is LTE, it would have been nice to be able to coax the E970 somehow into those bands.
