Deployments by region[edit]

The following table shows the standardized LTE bands and their regional use. The main LTE bands are in bold print.

  • Networks on LTE bands 7, 28 (LTE-FDD) are suitable for global roaming in ITU Regions 1, 2 and 3.
  • Networks on LTE bands 1, 3 (LTE-FDD) are suitable for roaming in ITU Regions 1 and 3, Costa Rica and Brazil and partially in some Caribbean countries.
  • Networks on LTE band 20 (LTE-FDD) are suitable for roaming in ITU Region 1 only.
  • Networks on LTE band 5 (LTE-FDD) are suitable for roaming in ITU Regions 2 and 3.
  • Networks on LTE bands 38, 40 (LTE-TDD) may allow global roaming in the future (ITU Regions 1, 2 and 3).
  • Networks on LTE band 8 (LTE-FDD) may allow global roaming in the future (ITU Regions 1, 2 and 3).
  • Networks on LTE bands 2 and 4 (LTE-FDD) are suitable for roaming in ITU Region 2 (Americas) only.
