AT&T HTC One receives update to support new LTE bands
If you own the AT&T version of the HTC One, you might have noticed that you received a fairly large sized 250MB update for your phone today. Usually an update that size is chock full of goodies for owners of the device, but this time it is all about the maintenance of the phone. The update includes support for LTE bands 2 and 5.

With AT&T expanding its LTE coverage to include new bands, the carrier needs to make sure that its 4G LTE models are able to support the new frequencies, hence the update. The OTA notifications should be popping up starting on Thursday, and while there really isn't anything new or cool being added to your HTC One, well, we guess it is 'sort of'' cool to have your phone enabled to work over more 4G LTE bands, isn't it?

Some HTC One users will be disappointed to see it isn't 4.2.2. Nonetheless, more bands = better LTE experience.

Interesting. My unlocked One that is connected to AT&Ts service is on software number 1.29.1540.17 When I attempt a manual update, I get a dialog box that states the phone is up to date. Is AT&T only releasing the update for their 'captive' phones?

How would AT&T have the ability to update unlocked phones?

Service is through AT&T, so I would imagine the database of frequencies, etc. would update from AT&T. This is new territory for me however, so I am still figuring things out.

Sorry, but KS isn't scheduled to get LTE love from AT&T for a while.
