Hello, There have been many articles about the Nokia Lumia 928 as being hardware ready for Verizon's Advanced Wireless Services network (AWS).
Nokia received permission from the FCC: ID QMNRM-860 (Approved Feb 22, 2013) for an in the field software upgrade that would enable LTE band 4 (UL 1710-1755 Mhz, DL 2110-2155 MHz) on the Nokia Lumia 928.
Usually, there is an answer on the Internet for any question one might have but I have researched this extensively and cannot find an answer to the question: Has there been a radio software upgrade enabling AWS on the Nokia Lumia 928?
I know. Does it include the radio software upgrade that Nokia received approval for?
The list of "improvements" did not say anything about that. of course I do not know how many other updates this phone has received or what their benefits were. Verizon wants all new phones to be AWS enabled and I'm pretty sure since the 928 can support AWS there is no reason why Verizon wouldn't want it enabled.
Nor did the Lumia Amber list of improvements mention anything about it. Nokia has not mentioned anything about it. I contacted their support and received the following:
"I hope for your kind understanding as for now, there is no such information available in our end regarding the radio software upgrade enabling AWS on the Lumia 928." Josh (10:07:56)
Nokia's request was approved 02/2013. Verizon has deployed AWS. What happened to the upgrade?
AWS is in very few areas now. Of course you may very well live in one of those areas. Anyways unless you are in a congested area AWS won't matter. As I said Verizon has it stipulated that all new phones coming out as of Jan 2014 MUST be AWS enabled. So if there that desperate to have as many AWS enabled phone out there it makes sense to enabled on the 928. But that's my logic
