Nexus 4 LTE Radio Enabled; Works Only In Canada!

Nexus 4 LTE Radio Enabled; Works Only In Canada!

Back when Google unveiled the Nexus 4, there was a huge cry over the lack of LTE on the phone. The Nexus 4 very well features an LTE capable radio inside its 9.1mm thick body, but it has been disabled by Google over battery life concerns. Well, an XDA member has managed to enable LTE on the Nexus 4 in all its high-speed glory.

Sadly, the LTE connectivity will only work in Canada on 1700MHz frequency. This means that this trick will not allow Nexus 4 owners in the United States to enjoy LTE on their handset, since this 1700MHz band — known as the AWS in the U.S — is not used by carrier. The method to enable LTE is also pretty easy, and all the user needs to do is key in *#*#4636#*#* in the dialer and change the network mode to LTE.

Below is a video of LTE in action on the Nexus 4 -:

 

So if you own a Nexus 4 and are living in Canada, you can enjoy LTE on all the carriers out there including TELUS and Rogers.
