Librem 5 Bell Canada?


#1

I was wondering if the Librem 5 was going to be working with the Bell Canada carrier. I did some research, but nothing clear came out, so I am asking the community.

Check this:

and this:

Looks like either of the US modems (PLS8-US; BM818-A1) will work on 2 3G bands, but only 1 LTE band used by Bell. You’ll have to find out if that 1 LTE band is adequate where you live, I guess.

BM818-E1 (Europe, mainly) also covers 2 3G bands and 1 LTE band for Bell, but it’s a different LTE band from the US modems.

Edit: At least that’s how I understand it.

By the way, this question actually pertains to the Phones category (not Librem in general), but I don’t know how to link it or re-categorize it. Maybe a Purism moderator can help.
