    ATT LTE Compatibility with Docomo Sony Z5

    I am looking to pick up a Docomo unlocked Z5 Premium next month...I believe the frequency specs listed below are accurate, but I am trying to figure out where I will get LTE (if anywhere). My current phone is a Docomo S4 that gets HSPA reliably on 850mhz on ATT and in Canada on Fido/Rogers but no LTE. The Sony appears to include Band 17-700mhz, so I assume that is the basic LTE band that should cover me in most places served by ATT and I will default to HSPA on 850mhz where ATT does not use Band 17?

    Cellular Networks: GSM850, GSM900, GSM1800, GSM1900, UMTS800 (B6), UMTS850 (B5), UMTS2100 (B1), UMTS800 (B19), LTE2100 (B1), LTE700 (B17), LTE1800 (B3), LTE2600 (B7), TD-LTE2600 (B38), LTE800 (B19), LTE1500 (B21), TD-LTE1900 (B39), LTE700 (B28)

    Cellular Data Links: GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HSDPA, HSUPA, HSPA+, LTE, LTE-A

    Yeah you'll be covered by band 17 lte but why not wait until another version releases next month? I looked at the regular z5 that's available now on ebay and it has almost all the major att bands

    To get the most out of at&t, you need lte bands 2,4,5,17,29 and 30

    I'm waiting for the Premium model next month, but the Japan version only supports the frequency set in my post....So I want to be sure I'm covered although to be honest I never noticed a difference in speed between LTE and my current HSPA when using apps or browsing between my current phone and a friends LTE phone, so not sure what the benefit is.
