What are AT&T's 4G LTE bands?

I am considering buying a new phone that supports FDD-LTE 1800/2100/2600MHz and TD-LTE B38/39/40/41. Could it work on AT&T LTE network

Re: 4G LTE bands

AT&T 4G HSPA and HSPA+ use 850Mhz(Band 5) and 1900Mhz(Band 2) bands but it all depends on area if they own a license. LTE uses Band 17(700Mhz), Band 5(850Mhz), Band 2(1900Mhz), Band 4(1700/2100Mhz) currently.

Re: 4G LTE bands

I have noticed that Band 4 includes 2100Mhz. Does it mean I can use at&t's LTE?

Re: 4G LTE bands

 That mean your phone are not fully work with AT&T.
It also do not work fully in North America.
It also mean the phone MAYBE work only in one area,and as soon as you left that area,NO SERVICE!!

Re: 4G LTE bands

A bit late to the party, but the 1700/2100Mhz (AWS-4 or AWS Band 4) requires both the 1700Mhz and 2100Mhz frequencies to be used at the same time. The 1700Mhz is used for uplink while the 2100Mhz is used for downlink.

 

So if a phone supports 1700Mhz, that does not necessarily mean it will work unless the phone supports AWS-4.

Re: 4G LTE bands

Thinking about buying a 4G that uses 4G:FDD-LTE: 800/1800/2100/2600MHz. Will this work on the AT&T Network?

Re: 4G LTE bands

I'm looking at the Oppo Find 7

https://oppostyle.com/find-7-pack?utm_campaign=ee3103af6b-OPPO_Find_7_Price_Cut_3_6_2015&utm_medium=...

 

Antenna bands are

 

3G
US Version: UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA/HSPA+/HSPA+42 (WCDMA 850, 900, 1700, 1900, 2100MHz)

 

4G/LTE
US Version: FDD-LTE: Bands B1/4/17

 

Rep at AT&T Store said it will work, but he said my Intl. Note 3 would work too, and I can only get H+ with that. Not a lot of confidence in store sales guys.

 

What are the odds I'll get 4G/LTE with  AT&T with this phone?

 

Thanks in advance.

As long as you stay in a band 4,17 area you will have LTE

Re: 4G LTE bands

If my phone says the LTE frequencies it accepts are: (AWS / 700 / 850 / 1900 / 2100 / 2600) will my LTE work?  Does the AWS essentially mean 1700?
