I'm with TMobile here in the Carolinas, I've read numerous articles about TMobile having been in the process of creating their LTE service since July 2012, which will be band 4.
Sooo, then, Google prepared for the future quite well indeed!
As the above poster has written, its indeed missing key components to fully work on LTE.
2 things you can count on for the Nexus 5...
1- Global LTE bands- its needed!
2- Not made by LG- its a supply and demand issue, reports are pouring in that LG just wasn't prepared to build and ship a lot of phones to meet the current demand. While Google is still to blame partly for this whole problem with grabbing a phone, LG is also to blame just as much.
I'm still going to just relax and enjoy my 2nd run with the Nexus 4 when it arrives next week...
