Apple faces fines for blocking LTE on the iPhone

Even though newer iPhone models have support for multiple 4G LTE bands, which would allow them to connect to various networks around the world, buyers may not always be able to access some of these networks, as Apple has been actively blocking 4G networks belonging to certain carriers. ZDNet reports that the practice may get Apple into trouble in Belgium, where the company may soon be facing fines for LTE blocking, as the Council of Ministers has ruled that no mobile phone maker can block 4G access for any carriers. Apple has a preferred partner relationship with Mobistar in the region, whose network is the only one officially certified for the iPhone. Competitors Proximus and Base do not sell Apple devices.
