Default S3 T999 (original) is LTE possible now?

I've been reading and it seems there are a couple of methods to enable LTE on my original T999 now on T-Mobile. But like most threads there is a lot of conflicting information.

Had anyone successfully enabled LTE on a SGH-T999 from T-Mobile? The first generation?

Searching the threads is so confusing, some say yes, others say no.

I'm on T-Mobile Dallas TX, and have a 18 month old S3, one of the original ones. Currently running DarthStalker Rom...but only get 4G. Would love to get LTE!

Thanks for any guidance.
If that helped, press THANKS.

Pretty sure the phone is lacking the hardware for it (no LTE chip).
