    Does this bother you AT&T folks wanting this phone? I'm pretty locked in with AT&T and this is off putting for me.

    Whoa, that's very interesting. Just doing some Googling, it seems like 30 and even 29 are pretty important?

    How important is Band 30?

    I would say it depends on where you live. I live in a smaller area, so I don't even think Band 30 is here. It seems to help with congestion, which isn't a problem where I live. I guess I'll maybe see some slowdowns in larger areas, but I'm not that worried about it.

    Had no idea that AT&T operated on band 29. The more you know. This is a no go for me on AT&T.

    Yeah, it has me leaning towards the Pixel 2 depending on what bands that will have as well. I just saw the U Ultra didn't have 29 or 30 either. I'm not sure why HTC has gone this route? Being in LA and all the talk about 30 being essential for congestion, I'll probably pass too. I'm still happy with my 10 for now anyway.

    I'm kinda surprised no one else feels like this is a big deal? You don't think it will affect LTE signal with AT&T?

    Disappointing that it doesn't have all of AT&T 's lte bands. Will it support volte, HD voice, and wifi calling?

    If the U trend continues...like the U Ultra the U 11 will not support at&t's VOLTE. Also the U Ultra is missing band 29 and 30 too.

    Yes some unlocked phones have bands 29 and 30. WiFi calling on at&t with unlocked is a no go. Volts was active on the 10 but some complained it drained the battery to much so they turned it off. It's really not a problem.

    I preordered the U11 with the intent of switching back to Android from the iPhone 6s Plus. Is the lack of Band 30 really something that I should be concerned about? I'm a NYC resident, which is obviously a congested market. If Band 30 is, indeed, critical, I'll have to cancel my preorder.

    I checked and I'm only using 2, 4, and 17 in my area. Not worried about it. The only thing it *may* cause is bottle necking in congested areas.

    I was worried about band 30 missing from the unlocked G6 but I only ever used bands 2 and 17 so I'm not worried about the U11 either.

    Yeah. Band 30 is a congestion related band. It is used in larger areas when the others are loaded. If you don't live in an area that needs it or uses it, then you're fine. You won't notice anything. You may not notice anything in other areas, either. You may notice some slowdowns if the other bands are too congested, however. But for most of us, it isn't a big deal at all.

    My area uses the same bands, as well as band 12. From what I understand, band 12 is interoperable with band 17.

    Good to know! Thanks. I'm in LA and have been checking LTE Discovery as well. I'm usually on band 12 and haven't seen band 30 yet. I'll probably wait a while for the U11 though... still love my 10 and am kinda interested in the Pixel 2. Looking forward to seeing the U11 user reviews as soon as it comes out!

    Ah LTE Discovery wouldn't work for me anyways. My current phone doesn't have band 29,30 so I wouldn't be able to see if it's even in my area or not. FYI for those using the app on their current phones lol.

    You're on a 10, right? According to the spec sheet, the HTC 10 has 29 and 30.

    Band 30 is all over Chicago and New York suburbs. It is really important to have for great service in the congested areas. This is a big miss and HTC keeps ignoring questions or why that don't have it.

    No, I gave my 10 to a family member and went back to my Nexus 6. I was holding out for the U11. My N6 has b29 but not b30.

    I checked on my friends phone in my city and as soon as I launched LTE Discovery it was sitting on Band 30. I'm watching Essential, O+5, and Google P2 now.
