    Does the original unlocked Passport's bands support all AT&T and T-Mobile frequencies? I'm leaning towards T-Mobile but I need to know if it has all the band's for their network. With that being said, would anyone know if it'd be better to go with AT&T or T-Mobile?

    The ShopBlackBerry website lists these supported network bands:
    FD-LTE 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 20 (2100/1900/1800/1700/850/2600/900/700/700/800 MHz)
    HSPA+ 1, 2, 4, 5/6, 8 (2100/1900/1700/850/900 MHz)
    Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)

    I have the OG Passport on T-Mobile. It gets all the bands. I get 4G LTE almost all the time.

    All the bands it has for neither carrier. Two models of the Priv do.

    But the Passport has the same compatibility for TMO as the TMO-sold iPhone 6 and 6 plus did. Which TMO still sells.

    As far as AT&T, it's pretty well compatible. Just not with the aggregated LTE. But that's a quality of speed issue, not coverage.

    Your last note is what my question was really about. You're saying that I will be better off on T-Mobile with the Passport than bringing it to AT&T? Because I'm asking about the quality of speed and connectivity. Not the respective carrier's coverage.

    If what you care about is speed with no regard for coverage (i.e. how far you can go before that LTE network does) then yeah--you'd be better off on TMO, because both their high speed LTE networks (bands 2 and 4) are covered with the Passport. But higher the frequency, shorter the distance covered.

    TMO speeds can be pretty impressive in some markets--I have personally seen speeds as high as 50mbps. AT&T may not be as fast, but they're more likely to have better-than-2G coverage in more places.
