Default 1900mhz hspa T-Mobile support

Does the nexus 5 support T-Mobile hspa refarmed 1900mhz? Because that's a important frequency for penetrating indoors cuz current non refarmed hspa uses 1700 / 2100 combo

I thought it was the lower frequency bands that allowed building penetration...? 600, 700...


Insert witty, pithy, androidy statement here

Depends on tower location for example a 2G 1900 PCS edge only cell site is closer to me than the 1700/2100 AWS LTE/HSPA/HSPA+
so theoretically if i see 5 bars edge once they refarm i would see 5 bars HSPA+ no LTE but its better than no service in some parts of my home.
because with T-Mobile AWS it uses two frequency's 1700 for upload and 2100 for download while refarmed PCS just requires the 1900
and 1900 is better than 2100
