Here’s a List of Smartphones That Work On JTL’s Faiba 4G Network

Faiba 4G

As we all get excited over the coming of Faiba 4G, the excitement might soon fade off for most of us and it’s not because of how hard it is to get your hands on a SIM card but your smartphone might not be compatible with Faiba 4G’s network. First of all, Faiba 4G’s network, in case the name didn’t sell it out, is purely 4G, that means phones without 4G support are out. Faiba 4G uses the 700MHz spectrum, which is a rare band to find on most smartphones, especially those that ship to this region.

Well, to help you figure out whether you need a new smartphone or the one you have is just fine, here’s a list of smartphones that are currently compatible with Faiba 4G (the list will be updated continuously as we confirm compatibility with devices):

These devices that support only Data will have to get software updates pushed to them so as to support VoLTE on Faiba 4G. As an individual, there’s really nothing you can do about it until JTL requests those updates from the respective manufacturers. Also, for those with Dual SIM phones, for your device to work, Faiba 4G must be SIM 1.
