        This would depend on the tech specs for the Galaxy Mega, you can check out some great details to help compare for compatibility here: Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) setup guide.

          It depends on which model of the Galaxy Mega you have. Where did you buy it?

           

          Here's the specs on the CDMA version:

          LTE  (4G)

          850  Extended Cellular / band 26  USA

          1900  PCS+G / band 25  USA

          2500  BRS / EBS (ClearWire) / band 41  USA

           

          WCDMA  (3G / 4G)

          850  Cellular / band 5 (V)  Americas, Oceania, Brazil, Israel

          900  band 8 (VIII)  Europe, Asia, Africa

          1900  PCS / band 2 (II)  Americas

          2100  IMT / band 1 (I)  Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania, Brazil, India, Israel

           

          CDMA  (2G / 3G)

          800  ESMR / BC10  Americas

          850  Cellular / BC0  Americas, Oceania, Brazil, Israel

          1900  PCS / BC1  Americas

           

          GSM  (2G)

          850  Cellular  Americas, Oceania, Brazil, Israel

          900  Europe, Asia, Africa

          1800  DCS  Europe, Asia, Africa

          1900  PCS  Americas

           

          US Cellular version supports additional LTE bands and does not support global roaming (GSM, WCDMA)

           

          The CDMA version will work on the 1900 MHz frequency for LTE and 3G if you are in an area that has been refarmed with 1900 MHz. Otherwise, you'll only get 2G speeds

           

          As for the GSM version...

          LTE  (4G)

          700  Lower 700 (AT&T) / band 17  USA

          850  Cellular / band 5 (V)  Americas, Oceania, Brazil, Israel

          1700  AWS / band 4 (IV)  Americas

          1900  PCS / band 2 (II)  Americas

          2100  IMT / band 1 (I)  Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania, Brazil, India, Israel

          2600  IMT-E / band 7 (VII)  Canada, South America, Europe, Asia

           

          WCDMA  (3G / 4G)

          850  Cellular / band 5 (V)  Americas, Oceania, Brazil, Israel

          1900  PCS / band 2 (II)  Americas

          2100  IMT / band 1 (I)  Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania, Brazil, India, Israel

           

          GSM  (2G)

          850  Cellular  Americas, Oceania, Brazil, Israel

          900  Europe, Asia, Africa

          1800  DCS  Europe, Asia, Africa

          1900  PCS  Americas

           

          MetroPCS version also supports WCDMA 1700

           

          This model can do LTE on both the 1700/2100 & 1900 MHz frequencies. 3G will work if you are in a refarmed area. If not, you can still use 1700/2100 MHz for LTE. If you are not in a refarmed area and there is no LTE coverage, you will fall back to 2G speeds.

           

          You should call Customer Service to find out if your area has been refarmed with LTE/3G on 1900 MHz.
