frequencies is always hardware based
and apple may never support the 800Mhz LTE
the world seems to be getting infected with the fragmentation of the American
1/2 the operators where I live support LTE on the frequencies apple support the other half don't
so even in europe carriers seem to start using different frequencies
this was not the case with 3g in my country

Well, yes, the frequency is always hardware based, but the question is, is the hardware capable of doing it and has Apple just switched that off in software, or is the communication chip not able to do that by definition?
Because support for frequencies in a communication chip may be switched on/off by software.
So the question, which chip exactly sits in the iPhones and what can that chip theoretically do (even if it doesn't do it in the current iPhone)?

Apple announced, in its earnings call yesterday, that LTE support will be rolled out to 36 more carriers, world wide, next week. However, no mention of what carriers/where was made, other than "Italy, Denmark, Finland, Switzerland, Philippines, and also several middle eastern countries".
