Found on the internet, works for me:

 

on your dial pad
*#*#4636#*#*
Device information
scroll down to: Set preferred network type
LTE/GSM auto (PRL) this is where you set your option

 

Tested on my S4 running 4.2.x, I selected GSM/CDMA auto (PRL) and it switched to 4G at my home,

 

After selecting LTE/GSM/CMDA auto (PRL) the LTE indicator came back.

 

So it looks like you can use this to force it to use a specific band. Don't know if that will help or not.
