Bell uses 1700 for LTE.
The new iPad use 700 and 2100 as the LTE frequency.
700 has not released in Canada yet.
I'm pretty sure bell does not use 2100 as their LTE frequency.
Then how can the New iPad runs LTE on Bell Network?
I wondered the same thing... but...
AWS is 1700/2100, no? (1700 is used in one direction, 2100 in the other)
Most people refer to it as 1700, perhaps to avoid confusion with the European 2100MHz UMTS band, but perhaps Apple for some odd reason decided to call it 2100?
If bell use 1700 as their LTE,
then New iPad will not compatible with LTE at Bell
For some unknown reason, in the realm of LTE, some people have taken to referring to the AWS band as "2100" despite the confusion that might entail.
The new iPad does have AWS LTE. That's what Bell, Telus and Rogers use.

If this is true that the Apple spec sheet is misleading and the GSM version of the new iPad does indeed support LTE on 1700MHz along with 700MHz and 2100MHz, this will be big news for T-Mobile USA customers, as well. T-Mobile is currently refarming their HSPA+ network to 1900MHz to free up 1700MHz for their future LTE network that will roll out next year. If the new iPad truly supports 1900MHz HSPA+ (as stated in the Apple specs) and 1700MHz LTE (as rumored in this thread), then it would be fully compatible with T-Mobile's future HSPA+ and LTE network. Since T-Mobile's LTE network won't roll out until next year, this isn't really a big deal for this generation iPad. However, there is a high probability that any future LTE compatible iPhone or iPad devices would use the same chipset and have the same frequency compatibility.
It is absolutely true that the new iPad has AWS LTE - otherwise Apple would be unable to claim compatibility with Bell, Telus and Rogers LTE in Canada.
