The answer is yes. Microsoft Lumia 950 XL is able to use 4G cellular technology.

How can I know whether Microsoft Lumia 950 XL supports 4G or not?

Nowadays, it is inevitable to buy a 4G-enabled device, since most internet users need a good internet connection. To know whether the phone is 4G-enabledor not, you can use multiple ways.

An easy method when you have the device in your hand is just switching on the mobile data, if the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL 4G data is activated, then you will see a symbol at the top of the display, in the indication bar. It might be 4G, 4G+, LTE, or LTE+ according to your carrier.

The absence of that symbol means that you are not connected to 4G at that particular moment, and it doesn’t definitely signify that your device doesn’t enable 4G. And that leads us to the second way.

Check your phone criteria on the user guide, or in the device package. If you don’t have any of them, you can still check that on the official site (or any other reliable website) using the device name or model number.

Introduction to 4G technology on Microsoft Lumia 950 XL

Mobile telecommunication technologies evolve by one generation almost every 10 years. 4G is the fourth one, which was officially started in 2009 in South Korea, and years after that it was provided in all populated areas. And by “they” we mean all cellular network operators around the globe.

They follow the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) guidelines. According to the ITU, a 4G tagged technology has fast internet speeds, fulfilling ten times the speed of 3G internet, and it also has low latency.

A lot of protocols were referred as 4G, such as: LTE, LTE+, and HSPA+.

Advantages of 4G on Microsoft Lumia 950 XL

4G was developed to grant a more reliable internet connection on mobiles, and that’s clearly what it did. 4G technology allows much enhanced downloading and uploading speeds than 3G.

The average 3G speed is around 1.5 to 9 Mbit/s, while the average 4G internet speed is between 15 to 90 Mbit/s, it can achieve as high as 900 Mbit/s.

Another important criterion of 4G, is its low latency. We can simplify latency and say it’s the time needed to transmit data or the delay between the action and the actual response. Lesser latency means a better user experience. 4G Latency is better than 3G by double. The average 4G latency is 50 ms.

With the help of the VoLTE standard, 4G now presents better voice quality in phone calls and gives users the ability to surf the internet while making calls.

All of these advantages combined with the low cost of 4G increased the use of Microsoft Lumia 950 XL 4G technology, to include better video conferencing, online gaming, and other real-time interactions.

What are 4G bands? And which bands are supported on your Microsoft Lumia 950 XL?

A 4G band is an interval of frequencies used by telecommunications companies. Why this matters to you? It matters because each cellular carrier uses distinct bands corresponding to the area. And not all mobiles support all 4G bands, so you should assure that your Microsoft Lumia 950 XL supports the bands offered in your area.

It’s hard to regularize the bands at the international level, because each government uses different bands for different radio transactions aside from 4g (such as aeronautics and radio broadcasts). Despite this, the ITU segmented the world into 3 regions and bands for each region.

The Microsoft Lumia 950 XL4G-enabled bands are:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 20, 28, 38, 40 – EMEA;1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 17, 20, 28, 38, 40, 41 – USA;.
