Are you sure it's the Asian model? Both the Asian and EMEA models can connect to 2600 MHz LTE.
The Asian model can do 700 MHz LTE (unlike the EMEA model), but T-Mobile will not begin rolling out their 700 MHz network until later this year. In any case, you'd want a model that picked up AWS so you can use T-Mobile's nationwide LTE band.

Keep in mind that AWS consists of both 1700 MHz (uplink) and 2100 MHz (downlink). If you have a carrier that has either 1700 or 2100 (but not both), the phone might detect the carrier, but wouldn't be able to use it.
