The new apple iPad's LTE feature is not likely to work outside of North America since the LTE networks in Europe and Asia use a different spectrum

Hi Mr. Balthazar,

 

One of its newest features, LTE support, will not work outside of the US and Canada even if your country has LTE networks. This is because the North American LTE networks utilize the 700MHz and 2.1GHz frequency, unlike the rest of the civilized world, which usually uses the 800MHz, 1.8GHz, 2.3GHz and 2.6GHz band for its networks. Some countries are also considering using the 900MHz, which is currently used by 2G networks, once they move all their users over to 3G networks.
 
Apple's iPad supports LTE on 700MHz and 2.1GHz, which means that owners of the new iPad in countries like Hong Kong, which will use the 2.6GHz band, will not be able to enjoy the fast speeds once it's network is ready. The same situation is also applicable in Japan, as telcos there are using the 800MHz and 2GHz bands for their LTE networks.
