    I did a search and from what I can tell carriers in Brasil are rolling out LTE using 2600MHz spectrum. Which means the U.S. version of the iPhone 5s will not get Brazilian LTE.

    U.S. version supports:

    1 (2100 MHz)
    2 (1900 MHz)
    3 (1800 MHz)
    4 (AWS)
    5 (850 MHz)
    8 (900 MHz)
    13 (700c MHz)
    17 (700b MHz)
    19 (800 MHz)
    20 (800 DD)
    25 (1900 MHz)

    Am I correct on this? In order to use LTE in Brasil, I will need to buy a European version of the iPhone 5s which supports 2600MHz?

    Do you know where I can order a European version? Who will ship to the US?

    It depends on the city.

    Claro, Vivo, TIM and Oi offer LTE service in certain cities in Brasil.

    You can see a coverage map here:
