To get full 3G data speed (up to 42Mbps), you will also need support for 3G 850/1900Mhz. Most of the 3G network is on 850Mhz.
If you have a device supporting LTE on 700Mhz or AWS 1700Mhz you can also get LTE/4G network speeds up to 150Mbps where available.
If you're unsure about what frequencies your phone supports - google on your phone model followed by the word 'specifications' and you will likey find it at the very top of the search results.
