I am planning to buy a Moto X mobile. Because the customisation options in NZ are limited I am planing to buy it in Germany.
The European Moto X help service told me that the phone will definitely work on the NZ G2 network. It will work on the 3G network if HSDPA850, HSDPA900 and HSDPA2100 are supported. But it will not work on the 4G network.
Solved! See solution

Sure, that'll probably work well on our 3G network on 900 and 2100 MHz.
Do you know what 4G bands / frequencies it uses? We have 4G on 1800, 700 and 2600MHz. It's arranged typically with 1800MHz as the main one in urban areas, with some 2600MHz infill, and some 700MHz in urban but used more for long distance (4G Extended, as we're calling it now).

These are the specs on their website:
GSM/GPRS/EDGE, UMTS/HSPA+, 4G LTE
UMTS GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
UMTS/HSPA+ (Bands 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 19)
4G LTE (B1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 17, 20, 25, 28, 40, 41)
Does that mean that 4G would work in most urban areas (1800)?

Yes, will probably work fine as it does band 3 (1800), band 7 (2600) and band 28 (700MHz)
Band 28 can be a little complicated, but you're right that band 3 is the main one you're looking for to use 4G on our network.
I can't guarantee it as it's parallel imported etc etc, as I'm sure you can understand, but it should be fine.
