If you're planning on using LTE, yes.

That phone also doesn't support 850Mhz 3G anyway so it doesn't really matter what LTE bands it supports because it's not suitable for use on Telecom anyway.

Good point Steve that handset would not suit TelecomNZ, VodafoneNZ is 3G 900Mhz / 2100Mhz 3G and 4G 1800 / 2600Mhz

That's the only specs for that phone, that's why I originally asked if I needed to get frequencies for it,i checked telecom site and they will be using both cat 3 and cat 4,i understand about the 3g side now.

the cat 1,2,3,4 just relates to the max download speed, not weather it will work on a NZ network or not

may be the same phone by name but for different markets (countries) they have different frequency bands that they use.

the mobi city one will work on 4g telecom and vodafone, and 3g telecom vodafone and 2degrees

Yes. You need 3G (WCDMA) 850 for Telecom.
