My phone does not have band 2, and from what I've read this area of T-Mobile coverage is Band 2 LTE. So for the last year my phone always just shows "4G", if I drive to Philly or Hershey it flips over to "4G-LTE"
Last night and today "4G-LTE" popped up a few times. My phone does have band 4 and band 12 LTE.
How can I tell what band the new "4G-LTE" signal is on my phone.
Phone: Android 5.2.2, HTC One (aka M7)

I have an HTC One M7.
I moved from Mountain View, CA where Tmo and my M7 rocked, to rural south central PA.
Tmo maps said this area had LTE for the last 18 months, but I wasn't getting LTE on my phone. Eventually I figured out that Tmo was using Band 2 for LTE here, and the M7 doesn't support band 2.
Being otherwise happy with my phone I just dealt with HSPA+ for the last year and a half.
A few weeks ago I started getting the LTE sign on my M7. I did a little research and it seems Tmo has light up band 4 LTE in this area. So my phone is now operating at full functionality (even if it is a five year old model)
So, I continue to remain happy with my phone M7 and happy with Tmo rolling out band 4 LTE in central PA
