    New iPad 4G LTE Version Will Not be Supported in Many Countries Outside North America



    AppleInsider reports that people in many countries outside of North America may not be able to benefit from the new iPadís LTE capabilities. On the information page of the UK Apple site, for example, it says that the new iPad supports the 700MHz and 2100MHz LTE bands that are in the US AT&T version, but AppleInsider says that these bands donít match the 800MHz, 1800MHz and 2600MHz LTE bands in use in Europe. Elsewhere, in Japan, for example, AppleInsider notes that the Wi-Fi+4G model doe not even have LTE support, stopping at DC-HSDPA, let alone having any compatible network to run on. As Phil Schiller noted when talking about LTE during the new iPadís launch on Wednesday, Apple is well aware that 4G LTE bands are very different in other countries outside of North America, but thinks that they will probably all become unified in the future, just as happened with 3G. Until that happens though, there will have to be different versions of the iPad to suit the LTE bands in different countries. AppleInsider concludes by saying that Apple is working with various telecoms companies to try and sort the whole issue out.

    Not true, it will fall back to a 3G network according to Apple.

    What is not true? Those countries can't support the LTE frequencies. Built in fallback to 3G was NEVER in question.
    Facts are the first casualty of bad information.

    Falling back to 3G means the new iPad will work overseas. LTE/4G may not be supported but the new iPad will still work. Maybe the original post that started this thread should have been worded slightly differently.

    Well I think basically the heading says that the 4G LTE won't be supported outside the US in may cases, which I think is correct.
