Here is Geek Beat’s list of LTE networks. Keep checking in since this list will be continuously updated, so if you don’t see your country or carrier yet, just wait a little while. Because of the vast array of networks scattered throughout the world, we’ll be splitting this list up into several parts: The English Speaking Countries, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia, the Americas, Middle East, and Africa.
As you can see, there is giant array of LTE bands. This will create a giant hurdle for mobile interoperability going forward, even if LTE/VoLTE become the standard wireless.
Bands 1-25 are FDD-LTE
Bands 33-44 are TDD-LTE
