Default [Q] Changing LTE frequency bands

I'm going to buy a North American Nexus 5 and use it in Europe. As far as I know, the LTE frequency bands are different in America and Europe.

My question is, would it be possible to change the radio (or modem? or whatever it's called there) to make the LTE work in Europe? Or is it hardware locked?
