I live in Canada and I would love to purchase a FP3+ while I’m in France, and use it in Canada.
I live in Montréal (densely populated) but sometimes (rarely) go out in rural neighbourhoods or remote areas.
I would like to be able to use 4G most of the time, close to what I could get with a phone that gets all 4G bands.
I found this post and associated link, but I couldn’t answer my questions with that information.
I understand the FP3+ covers all 2G and 3G bands, but not all 4G bands. I also understand that some operators in Canada use mostly bands the FP3 is compatible with, others operators less so.
Currently I’m with Fizz. But I’m ready to switch phone operator if the FP3+ is more compatible with another operator. I think only Band 4 ((Band 4 (AWS 1700/2100MHz))) would work with the FP3+ on Fizz? Which doesn’t sound great.
I found this website: kimovil, https://www.kimovil.com/en/frequency-checker/CA/fairphone-3, which tells which some operators will support the FP3+ best.
Can I trust this website and its results?
Is there a technical spreadsheet I should send operators in order to ask them whether the FP3 will work (or how well it will work) with their service.
I know the FP3+ is modular. Is there a chance I could easily replace the antenna part with one that is compatible with all 4G bands in Canada?
