It should i guess because the galaxy note 3 has a wide range of 4g lte frequencies it can pickup.
I think the galaxy note 3 ahould be compatible with most 4g lte networks avrros the globe.

Welcome to the forums Shaaz. That SM-N900w8 kind of sneaked up on us. It wasn't mentioned in the original release materials from Samsung revealed on sammobile. Further exploration of the web on your fine device revealed that those bands are dependent on the market. Is the Latin American carrier you're using also using one of the Canadian frequencies?

I could be looking at this the wrong way but after the regional SIM lock fiasco at release it's better to be safe than sorry.

From what I can find it looks like an international Note 3 (SM-N9005) but with a different modem. I agree with dontpanicbobby above, it may have the frequencies your looking to use it on, but may be region SIM locked.

I would also be very wary of rooting it and flashing any mod not specifically made for it.

In theory of you never insert a SIM from new, take it to a new country that uses the same frequencies for GSM, HSPDA, LTE etc. You should be OK.

I say in theory as I personally have never tried it.
