Got an LG Q6 from Fido Store

Last weekend, I went to the Fido store at the Brentwood town center. My old cellphone is Jianguo YQ601. I used almost two years.

Now I feel the old one is too slow and its battery can only run 4 to 6 hours. Just one week before, I received the txt message from Fido. It gave me an exclusive promos. Two years plan, free LG Q6 smartphone. Small plan is enough. So I bought this  LG Q6 at the store.

When 4G connected, I did a speed test.

Fido has LTE 1700 first.  Now it starts to enable other bands, including 700 and 2600,  to whole Canada. That is why my cell phone, YQ601, does not always get LTE, or 4G connection. Because YQ601 has 2100/1800/2600 only.
