Will at&t support my foreign cellphone (3G?)

I'm going to be living for a year in the States and I need a prepaid SIM card. However my phone is a BQ Aquaris U plus, and works with the following bands:
4G: 800 / 1800 / 2100 / 2600 B20 / B3 / B1 / B7
3G: 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900   V / VIII / II / I
2G: 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900

 

I'm guessing that means I can only use 3G (I'm not 100% sure either). Can I still get that prepaid plan and use my phone with 3G? I know some american companies no longer support 3G.

I want to make sure I won't 

Thank you!

Yes, only 3G as it has no LTE bands.  ATT requires bands 850 and 1900 for 3g service and you have both.

Awesome! Thank you very much!

So data should work just fine, only slower, right?

I can’t say for sure.  You will need to program APN settings once sim is installed.  The store can help you with that.
