Has nothing to do with "allowing", everything to do with whether the iPhone supports the frequency Proximus uses. The GSM iPhone 5, sold in Europe, supports LTE on bands 1(2100MHz), 2(1800MHz), & 3(850MHz). So, what band does Proximus's LTE support?

But it's like the IOS dev, when I had access to the beta of IOS5 ( under the developer program ), 3G under Proximus was not availabe until the official release. ( 3G was working on IOS4 already).

Apple boys,my iPhone5 can NOT go on 4G LTE network Proximus in Belgium !!! I paid a lot of money buying each new iPhone model. I am very disappointed that I can not get on LTE !!! When will it be solved ??? Which version of IOS will solve this ? I hope somebody takes this question for serious and gets a reply. I didn't see any real answer. Thx.

There is no real answer because no one here can provide an answer. We do not know when, or indeed if, Apple will provide LTE support for Proximus. Proximus doesn't even appear to be an officially supported carrier for the iPhone, though it's possible that they are now but Apple hasn't updated their web page.
Until such time as Apple make an announcement, there's nothing any of us can tell you.

I suppose you are from Apple's support team. Thx for taking my request for serious and thx for the quick reply.
If there is no plan to provide LTE to Proximus in Belgium then I will have a real issue, than I will have to buy new/other smartphones for my company. We need 4G for our business apps and demonstrations. Please tell where I can claim the money that invested in iPhones back ?

No, I am not from Apple. No one here is; we're all just fellow users. That's why no one here can answer this question.
What you wish to do from here is up to you. If you wish to return your iPhones, you will need to talk to whatever store you purchased them from.

Does anybody know if we can bring in a complain about this (consumer protection - they sell a LTE enabled phone in Belgium without SIM restrictions) or somewhere at the EU for this. I am not so legally skilled :-)
