Default What bands does the Xperia Z have?

I'm seeing a lot of conflicting information Throughout the internet. Does the Xperia Z have the required bands to operate on T-Mobile 3G/4G, or not?
Not talking about HSPA+42, which is still only in some select areas. Talking about standard T-Mo 4G, using the 1700mHz and 2100mHz bands.

Thanks in advance.

The Z doesn't have the required bands for t-mobile LTE, the c6602 model only has the 1700 and 2100 bands for HSPA. However, the c6506 model of the ZL has both the 1700 and 2100 band required for t-mobile's LTE/HSPA.

Oh, that's awesome. I personally much prefer the ZL to the Z anyways. When/where will that version of the ZL be avaliable, does anyone know?
