Default T-Mobile US using 700MHz

Now that the department of justice approved T-Mobile's purchase of the A-block spectrum from Verizon, will the Z Ultra c6806 be able to use this once activated?

No. The C6806 supports LTE Band 17 (700b and 700c). The spectrum that TMobile just bought lies in LTE Band 12 (700a). When I learned this, I decided that a C6833 might make more sense for someone like me, who uses T-Mobile domestically but wants support for LTE 800 and 1800 MHz when traveling overseas. See my Google spreadsheet comparing the bands supported by the three major LTE versions of the Z Ultra.
