Default [Q] Enabling LTE on International One Max?

Hey guys,

This is one of my first threads so please bear with me.
If I did anything wrong feel free to let me know.

Issue 1: LTE Connectivity

So far I've been loving my one max so far, however there are a few troubling issues.
The first biggest issue for me is that I cannot seem to get 4g/LTE anywhere.
I had a note 3 before and I could get LTE coverage in the same area that I operate the one max in.
Is there anyway to enable LTE?
I'm currently on Telus network, and I've updated my APN's accordingly.
I was wondering if I had to flash a telus modem? If so, where would I go abouts downloading it?
Alternatively I vaguely recall a method of downloading the CSC by typing in a code in your dialer keypad.

Issue 2: Frequent Wifi connectivity problems

I've noticed that I've been dropping wifi connectivity quite often. Even when my phone is right next to the router, the connection will be lost
Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I promise to donate to the person (people) who helps me fix this issue!

Don't know international but on sprint because of the new spark network and the different bands I can't get standard LTE till they roll out an update.

Try typing #*#*4636#*#* on the dialer.
Then Phone Information.
Choose LTE Only. If it does not get LTE, either you are not in an LTE area or the phone does not support your network's LTE band.

I have the same issue. My phone turned up to be from the US and it is not getting LTE on any of the networks here although there is LTE in the US. I called HTC support and gave them my IMEI, they confirmed phone has LTE. Dunno what to do.

just found out that EMEA LTE frequency is 800 / 900 / 1800 / 2600 while USA LTE frequency is 700 / 1700 / 2100

so the only solution is to return the phone back to the reseller
