Our 5G network uses, N78 (N78 can be anywhere from 3300Mhz to 3800Mhz – Spark N78 is in the 3600MHz range.
Our Initial 5G deployment is ‘NSA’ (non-stand-alone). What this means is that a device first needs to connect to 4G before it can connect to 5G. This means that at minimum, a device must support both Band 1 | LTE 2100MHz and N78 | 5G.
Our 3G network uses the 850MHz. If your phone isn't compatible with either of these frequencies, it's likely to receive limited or no reception, meaning calling, texting and data will perform poorly or not at all.
Please check your phone or device specifications to ensure it is compatible.
The information in our IMEI checker is indicative only, and doesn't guarantee that your device will connect to our network. Also, please be aware that some services may be different or unavailable with a device that was not sourced from Spark.
