iPhone 6s GPS disconnection with 4G+ LTE 1800Mhz

It seems more and more likely that new Iphone 6s have a GPS problem when the sim card connects the Iphone 6s on a 4G+ LTE with the 1800Mhz frequency.

Here in France, Bouygues Telecom provides LTE at this unique frequency 1800Mhz and any Iphone 6s have this problem: after 20 minutes or so, Waze or whatever Map using the GPS, will disconnect and outputs a random place. The boussole itself is getting fool. The unique solution is to force the Iphone 6s on 3G to get the GPS back.

- Other French operators will have access to 1800Mhz in January. Iphone 6s using an Orange or Free sim card, which are currently connected to other frequency of the LTE, are working well.

-Other smartphones, like the Iphone 6, connected to the same Bouygues 1800 Mhz LTE are working well.

Without any information neither from Bouygues (http://forum.bouyguestelecom.fr/question...) nor from Apple (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/729...) since about a month now, I suspect a strong hardware problem which probably won't be solved by software and I would like to know if someone got this problem in another country and if a technician could have information on the interaction of the 1800Mhz with the GPS.

Most likely the GPS did not work at all, then the phone relies on cellular site ID to locate itself.

Then the carrier could be updating its network the site ID has changed, causing false data.

This is just speculation.

The GPS did work. If you insert another SIM card from Orange which is not on a lTE 1800Mhz, the "true" GPS (from satellites) works. Many people have exchanged their IPhone 6s at the App Store (within the 15 days), but in vain. The App Store proposed to me the exchange for another new one because it was my right. But they also said that it hasn't been helpful for some other persons.

It seems to have be solved by software in IOS 9.2 beta 3 and 4 according to many forums. Good news but most people have to wait to official 9.2 release.

Same problem here in the Netherlands. iPhone 6S 64gb with tele2 sim from studentmobiel. When LTE is switched on, the gps is not working anymore. Switching back to 3G solves the issue.

Update is installed since some time now. Switched back to LTE yesterday and used google maps. No problem with GPS. Today also without problem. I don't know if it is really solved but seems to be better.
