    Default nexus 4 lte in MEXICO

    I know there aren't a lot of mexicans in the site but im one of them and i wanted to share my exitment because i order a nexus 4 on the playstore (i live in the border with US) and i recently found in a mexican webpage that they tested the new lte network (from telcel) on the nexus 4, and the blasting fast speeds are a go!! soo yeah ill just have to wait until my device arrive (currently backordered) but its worth the wait!

    I did hear that someone already had a hack to get it to work with the Canadian LTE network too. I have no idea on the specifics since I assumed LTE was a hardware issue?

    the thing is that the canadian and the mexican carriers works on band4 (1700/2100) specifically the new lte network of telcel, so despite the lack of the antena and amplifier (so i know from various posts here and other sources) the lte can be enabled.

    That's good to know! Very jealous of you right now. IT does sound like Tmobile's future implementation of LTE here in the US might include some of the same! i.e band4 LTE.

    For this reason alone, I am getting into a tmobile business value plan with unlimited 4g and hope to be grandfathered in when their version of LTE is deployed.

    Thank you minniemike, so even if this N4 hack is proven it will not work on at&t's LTE network because it is band 17, and the N4's is band 4. :-(

    I'm waiting for the posts from those stating LTE on the N4 was physically impossible.

    Yes. The best and likely only future chance of LTE with the N4 is Tmobile's band4.

    In their defense, LG actually stated that there was a hardware limitation... and there technically is with current LTE carriers (verizon and att). Good article on this: LG Nexus 4 (sort of) has 4G LTE | Mobile - CNET News

    I'm guessing LG for some reason was told by tmobile to keep the LTE capabilities on the down low until they can actually offer it starting in another year or so.

    That's what I've been thinking... I'm sure Google's in the hush-hush list there, too.

    That speed is definitly LTE speed. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this will be implemented on T-mobile's future LTE but I won't get my hopes up.

    My T-mobile store stated that they will start roll out their LTE in Feb. They bought another carrier.

    We got a letter in the mail stating that, its because of the MetroPCS merger which the FBI is now investigating I hear.

    Con que planes puedes obtener LTE, son planes especiales o funcionan con los que ofrecen 3G?
    Tambin soy de la frontera y estoy interesado en el Nexus 4

    For those who don't speak spanish, I'm asking if there's a special data plan we need in order to get LTE speeds.

    Its standard for the FBI to investigate it keeps accountability.

    I was going to try this yesterday while I was in Tijuana but forgot! I know that LTE is live in Tijuana, and I have an Amigo SIM that I use when I go there. Their HSPA+ speeds are horrible, but I will try to remember to test this next time. This will also tell us if Amigo Prepaid plans are allowed LTE access, might need a different APN.
