4G Frequencies coverage

I want to buy a MLAIS M7 phone. Frequencies listed are : 2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz , 3G: WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100MHz , and 4G: FDD-LTE 800/1800/2100/2600MHz . Will this work on 4G in South Florida.

AT&T 4G HSPA and HSPA+ uses 850Mhz(Band 5) and 1900Mhz(Band 2) bands

LTE uses Band 17(700Mhz), Band 5(850Mhz), Band 2(1900Mhz), Band 4(1700/2100Mhz)

So no, the phone will only get 2 G in the limited areas where 2 G is still operating.

edge is still being operated on the entire ATT footprint.  The sunset date for the edge aka 2g is sometime in 2017.

The phone should get 4G HSPA+ service, as well, since the correct frequencies were listed in the OP.  It won't get 4G LTE service, though.

You're wrong good buddy aT&T has already cut out massive chunks of 2g across America, some states include Montana North Dakota South Dakota Wyoming Nevada Utah Colorado Arizona New Mexico and more. You need to visit AT&T coverage map and look at the bottom where it says require 3G 4G or 4G LTE handset and it will show a different pattern for these areas.

interesting I did not know that last artical I read said they were shutting down in 2017.  Thanks for the info.  It looks like they went after lower population areas.
