Looks like they are testing in the 1755-1780 MHz bands.
Also, assuming the merger is approved, they mightbe eventually using MetroPCS's LTE spectrum as well.
If you're not a clairvoyant, then you shouldn't be speaking for a dead guy.
I'm here to talk about Apple stuff, and related tech stuff. Your political beliefs? I really couldn't care less about.

Right now, the Verizon iPhone 5 will only register the 4G 1900 Mhz (Band 25) which is also being used by T-Mobile in ONLY a selected markets. I live in Phoenix and it's sporadic 3G only. No LTE. I don't think the iPhone 5 will ever use T-Mobile's prospective LTE capabilities. MacRumors has a report on prior Apple approval of LTE feature.

The AT&T one will be the one you would want on T-Mobile, it will work with T-Mobile's pending LTE, and with refarmed HSPA+ 42 right now.

So even if the bands/frequency will be compatible with the iphone and the carrier in question the phone will never get the LTE option to turn ON in the settings unless Apple approves its network.
And you can bet if the iphone is not officially sold by that particular carrier Apple will not be turning it on.
Another way how Apple has the carriers by the ballz
Interesting article below:
So to those thinking I will buy the verizon i5 version to get LTE everywhere else in the world outside the US think again.
If the international carrier you would like to use it on doesnt get approval by Apple and passes their tests then you will not be able to connect to their LTE.
Just GSM 3G and HSPA+
