iPhone 5’s LTE Carriers Will Include AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and Others

After Apple’s announcement today that the iPhone will support LTE, carriers are jumping up and waving their arms to let everyone know that their networks will be able to take advantage of it.

The Verge:

In the US, AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint will all offer it; in Canada, Bell, Rogers, Telus, Fido, Virgin Mobile, and Koodo are on board. In Europe, the UK (on the just-announced EE network) and Germany will have it through T-Mobile. In Asia, Apple has announced Japan’s SoftBank and KDDI, Korea’s SKT and KT, Hong Kong’s SmarTone, and Singapore’s SingTel.

Sprint was an interesting inclusion, as their LTE deployment is unique, using bands that Verizon and AT&T don’t use. This meant Apple had to do engineering and testing for a single carrier, one who’s subscriber levels are less than half of Verizon’s.

The full list of LTE carriers that the iPhone will be launching on is:

  • US: AT&T, Verizon, Sprint
  • Canada: Bell, Rogers, Telus, Virgin Mobile, Fido, Koodo
  • Japan: KDDI, SoftBank
  • Germany: T-Mobile
  • UK: EE (T-Mobile / Orange)
  • Australia: Optus, Telstra
  • Korea: SKT, KT
  • Hong Kong: SmarTone
  • Singapore: M1, SingTel
