Will EE 4g work with these bands?: 4G: B1 FDD-LTE, B3 FDD-LTE, B7 FDD-LTE, B20

EE's base layer is B3 FDD, with primary capacity add of B7 FDD. B20 is mostly VoLTE retricted but it also is present. EE has not refarmed UMTS 2100 spectrum to LTE publicly yet.

B20 is mostly VoLTE retricted but it also is present.
I've been on BT Mobile for a year and recently switched to EE. I must say I've never been connected to 800MHz. Assuming it's not available to non-VoLTE phones (/non-EE phones, which I had till recently) and/or my area has good 1800MHz signal... is 800MHz restricted to VoLTE devices only?
With regards to the OP's post, I think B3, B7 and B20 are the only 4G bands that are currently in operation in the UK by all networks, so there is no UK network using Band 1 (correct me if I'm wrong).

BT Mobile does not support VoLTE yet so no suprise you've never seen B20.
Having good L18 would also preclude.
3 allegedly has L21 too.
