Hi Guys
My question is related to the LTE frequency they use I have an E980 and I am now in Qatar, the model they have here is E988 which is "LTE 1800 / 2600 - E988" however my E980 "LTE 700 MHz Class 17 / 1700 / 2100 and I am experiencing very slow 4G connection, is it because of the bandwidth or it might be something else.
Thanks in advace

Naah Bro!!
The frequency bands are related to your hardware!
E980 n E988(mine) have different freq bands due to different modems

All: GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
E985: HSDPA 900 / 2100

E986: HSDPA 900 / 2100
E986: LTE 800 / 1800 / 2600

E988: HSDPA 850 / 900 / 2100
E988: LTE 1800 / 2600

ATnT: HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100
ATnT: LTE 700 MHz Class 17 / 1700 / 2100
