    Calcutta is about to become the first city in the country to have a free fourth-generation (4G) Wi-fi service.

    I live in Calcutta.. I am a BlackBerry z3 user so my question is whether my phone support this 4G wifi service or not.. ??

    The BlackBerry z3 does not support 4G at all, so no it won't.

    Just go to mobile settings and see if there is an option for 4G or not. Even if your phone has a 4G I doubt it will work in india because the spectrum of India is very rare and almost no phone has that. I believe it to be of 2100 MHZ, but can't be sure about it.

    Urmm when you mean 4G WiFi service, you are referring to Internet service providers providing dongles, right?

    In that case, the phone's lack of 4G doesn't matter, right? It's related to WiFi speed.

    Plus, the 4G version of Z3 hasn't been launched yet, AFAIK. (edit: apparently, it has. A discreet launch, eh)

    There are two sub-models of the Z3 and according to the Safety&Product Information, both lack LTE bands. The LTE variant may never have launched.

    That being said...

    Network Mode options are carrier controlled. So even though your phone might be 4G/LTE-capable, if it isn't provisioned for 4G/LTE, it may not show 4G/LTE amongst the options.

    A better idea would be to get your phone's model number (STJ100-1, SQN100-5, etc.) off the box it came in or from Settings>About>category: General and researching it on BlackBerry's website, or the internet. Alternatively, you can install an app called Signal (by Odd Element.) This app detects which model you have and can show you the enabled radio frequency bands in your phone.

    @karswarnava: which carrier is this that's launching 4G in Calcutta? Or better yet, do you know which band it might be that they're launching LTE on?
