    Hello,

    I would like to ask for some help please, as I'm in the process of choosing a Nexus 6. I would like to know if the device is compatible with a particular provider's 4G technology.

    The provider is 'Three', in the United Kingdom.

    On a support page (link cannot be posted), in the "You need to have a device that’s compatible with our 4G technology." section - they say:

    "If you got your device from somewhere other than Three, for example, if you got it abroad or from another network, your device might work on different technology [...] There are different types of 4G that work on different frequencies depending on the network. You may need to mention that the frequency our 4G currently works on is 1800."

    Link: Removed

    ...I have tried (and failed) to locate the relevant specifications to check the Nexus 6's compatibility. Even GSMArena's page didn't have this data and my knowledge about frequency bands (etc) is very limited.

    Any help from you lovely people would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you so much.

    Hello there,

    It really depends on which specific model of Nexus 6 you get, but here are the specs (from GSM Arena) for every model.
    And this link 4G frequencies in the UK: What you need to know will let you check Three's 4G bands. Basically, if you want LTE, you'd need a phone with suport for 800/1800/2600 MHz.

    4G bands LTE 700 / 800 / 850 / 900 / 1800 / 2100 / 2600 / TD-LTE 2500 - XT1100
    (Bands 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 19, 20, 28, 41)
    LTE 700 / 850 / 1700 / 1800 / 1900 / 2100 / 2600 TD-LTE 2500 - XT1103
    (Bands 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12, 13, 17, 25, 26, 29, 41)

    SpookDroid beat me to it.

    (The 1103 has CDMA and band 17, which you won't need unless you're thinking of taking a trip to the US or Australia).

    Do you mean the slight model variations by region?
