What devices are supported on 4G?
Our new 4G LTE mobile network operates on 700 MHz spectrum (known as Band 28), which is common in Australia and New Zealand. You will need a device that supports this band. Given the large number of mobile phones available Telecom Niue Limited is unable to provide advice on which phones are supported.
Do I need a new phone?
Perhaps. It depends on what make and model of phone you have, Telecom Niue network currently does not support Apple devices. If your phone supports, the spectrum bands that we use on our 4G (Band 28) then you do not need to change. If not, then you will need a new phone. Any iPhones with VoLTE will work on our network.
