Softbank does not say on their website. I know they support 2100mhz but the HTC One does not. I have seen many rumours but nothing concrete. Planning to buy from Expansys who have the fun clause of not taking a device back if it does not work due to incompatible LTE band.

Checking Wikipedia here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-UTRA...nel_bandwidths

Tells me that would be 1900, 1700, 850 and 700? That means I can't buy the HTC One Asia edition as it only supports 4G/LTE: 1800/2600 MHz

Darn, that sucks as the HTC One from Hong Kong and Japan is MUCH cheaper than the UK version. Do you have a source for that info?

Also thanks, you saved me wasting close to 400 quid. Guess I am stuck with my second choice, the Nexus 5 which supports LTE: Bands: 1/3/5/7/8/20

One thing that does confuse me. The link above also has a region part where it has a big fat yes for 2600 but does not go into detail which parts of Asia. Have to say that the whole LTE thing is complicated.
