How will not being able to receive 4G LTE band 20 (800MHz) affect me?

I am thinking of buying a Lenovo P2. It will connect to LTE bands 1, 3, 4, 7 and 8 but not band 20 (800MHz). I live in the Scottish Highlands and often travel to remote and rural areas. I have read that EE use the band 20 (800MHz) frequency to boost signal in rural areas. Do you know how this would affect me? EE also use band 3 (1800MHz) and band 7 (2600MHz) for 4G. Is it a bad idea to get a phone that cannot receive every frequency used by the provider or is it acceptable to only receive 4G on two out of three frequencies?

Hi @shalbal,

 

Welcome to the EE Community.

 

To use the 800MHz spectrum you'll need an EE pay monthly plan and a 4G calling capable handset.

 

Check our list of EE 4G calling capable handsets >

 

Thanks

EE has quite a lot of 800MHz coverage in the Highlands, so yes you probably will miss out on coverage.
