iPhone 8/8 Plus, iPhone X Supports Freedom Mobile Band 66 AWS-3 LTE [u]

Apple has updated their LTE page to indicate iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will support Band 66 LTE (AWS-3), meaning it should work on Shaw’s Freedom Mobile LTE network:

The LTE page doesn’t list iPhone X yet, but given the similarities to iPhone 8, the newest iPhone definitely should also work on Band 66 AWS-3 LTE.

Will Freedom start selling iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X anytime soon?

Freedom Mobile responded to a customer on Twitter to say “Working with new & existing partners to provide our customers what they are looking for is a priority. Unfortunately, there’s no info available at this time.”

iPhone X will start at $1319 CAD for the 64GB version, while iPhone 8 starts at $929 and iPhone 8 Plus starts at $1059 CAD.

Update: iPhone X page lists LTE Band 66, so Freedom Mobile will be supported (thanks Trevor).
