AT&T 4G LTE frequency bands

I am in the process of buying an unlocked android phone and I'm wondering what 4G LTE bands does at&t use? All of the websites I have visited are outdated or vary in response.
Also, the sources I find say that band 17 is the main network band; however, I have recently learned that band 17 is a sub band of band 12. Is it possible to use band 12 instead of 17?

Thank you
