It will support plenty of bands including both AT&T and Verizon LTE frequencies.
The new iPad release date is set for March 16th for the US, which is next Friday - in just over a week. Other countries like Canada, the UK, Australia, France, Germany and Japan are getting it on the same date as well. Apple has worked out the logistics brilliantly this time - a second batch of 23 countries will get the new iPad on March 23rd.
