Bands B4. B12. B17.

Thinking of switching to PM. The phone that I am thinking about purchasing has two versions.   (International XT1941-4 )  or  (Latam XT1941-3 ) Which would work best?  I'm assuming the international model. Would the Latam model work just fine? As it's a better choice in my situation; its brand new versus open box, less expensive and closer for shipping etc.  The Telus tower closest to where I'll use the phone the most has bands 2. 4. 5. & 17.   A bit confused with 3G and LTE bands, AWS a-f  vs  AWS 1 etc.  Any feedback appreciated.

@Zoliath7  Both phones will work. Public uses B2 and B5 for 3G. The better choice would be the International as it supports more LTE bands but both phones support the main LTE bands that Public uses.

The international version should work when comparing with the frequency bands used by PM.

Giving up B12 may result in poor LTE coverage in certain areas, but for the most part you'll be fine with both versions.
