Default Unlocked One M8 compatible with ATT LTE?

I wanted to buy the One M8 unlocked instead of the ATT version.

Does anyone know if the unlocked version will be fully compatible with ATT LTE?

Thank you.

No its not compatible with LTE. It will only work with HSPA+

According to who? This is the first instance I've read of someone saying LTE won't work.

I have 2 units on order from HTC and everything I've read says the unlocked version will work on AT&T LTE.

Here's 2 examples...

If you look at the HTC website you will see in the description that both the Unlocked and Dev's Editions support LTE bands 4 and 17, which are the bands that AT&T uses.

(pick Unlocked or Developers, pick a color, and click "Continue" to see description, specs)
Please click the "Thanks" button if you found a post helpful!

My bad I misunderstood that he might talking about the international unlocked. I apologize!
