Might be sim specific then, definitely odd!

If you press phone
Dial *3001#12345#*
Click pdp context info
Click 0

Next to APN you should see everywhere
If you don't the carrier settings haven't actually applied behind the scenes correctly.

Yes it shows everywhere (wasn't this general.t-mobile.uk before?) and I get a T-Mobile reverse dns name when I visit a show my IP site. (My Dad on Orange gets an Orange reverse dns). My 4G MiFi gets no reverse DNS but an originally orange owed IP according to this site's speed test and speedtest.net.

Yep as both networks show it does seem to indicate orange sites left (assuming both are connectable)...
Chances are some of those smaller orange sites near to you are getting LTE via microwave. The ones not so tall. To be honest they're probably already in the process.

I'd be very interested to know the source of that knowledge...

All that means is your handset can see RF from both a legacy T-Mobile cell site and a legacy Orange cell site.

Nothing to do with upgrades etc... as purported elsewhere

Gave up on EE got a S4 on 3 so I am ready for 4G and getting nearly 20 down on Ultrafast

3 have told me I can unlock it also as I have been with them since they started. Which means I now have a phone with will do LTE 800/850/900/1800/2100/2600 so interesting for the future..

Nice! Sounds like my Huawei E5776 which does LTE 800/900/1800/2100/2600, which should do for any EU travel. (need 700 for USA but its hard to find a provider who will sell a mobile data SIM over there).

We might one day need 700mhz, but Ofcom are saying ~10 years; and that's to try and harmonise with US/Canada LTE - and by then they will have moved on!

Well I was being rather limited with just 1800. 3 said they do a SW upgrade to put the S4 onto their 4G which sounds fine. (prob just turn the 4G chip on)

Will never leave them to be honest. always been the best in my eyes.

From their site

When 4G arrives in your area we will nudge you up with a simple free software update. So long as you have a 4G Ready device, such as this, you won’t pay a penny extra."
