    I want to purchase the blackberry keyone but I'm also a member of Freedom mobile and I'm not sure if it is compatible with Freedoms AWS network.
    Also because it won't be available from Freedom I would be buying it unlocked straight from blackberry and I've heard it only comes GSM
    Can anyone clear this up for me?

    OK so without band 66 I won't be able to use LTE or I won't be able to use the phone with Freedom mobile at all?
    The North American KEYone has HSPA band 4 (required for 3G) and LTE band 4 (LTE in Ottawa/Eastern Ontario). What it doesn't have is LTE band 66 (LTE everywhere else). So, unless you live in Ottawa, Kingston, or thereabouts, you're stuck with 3G.

    The UK KEYone doesn't have HSPA band 4 so it's essentially useless on an AWS carrier with inconsistent LTE like Freedom.

    No Band 66, unfortunately.
