Hi guys,

 

Just got an iPhone 5  in the US.  Tried researching this online, but I think the models have changed.  I guess there are still technically three variants of the iPhone 5 that Apple sells here, but both the GSM models work on the same LTE bands: 2, 4, 5, and 17.

 

I am moving to the UK and would like to get a 4G LTE plan from EE.  I notice that the iPhone 5 currently sold in the UK runs on LTE bands 1, 3, 5.  Five (5) is the overlapping LTE band.  Will my US iPhone 5 be able to access LTE in the UK, or do all the LTE bands need to match, or is just having a single frequency "match" enough?

 

Thank you!
