Why would you think a super high priced phone like iPhone 7 would lack support for the most basic LTE band 1 (2100 MHz)?

Am using iPhone 7 and don’t get 4g signal. My dongle gets 4g signal on the same SIM. Talked to Vodafone and they confirmed iPhone 7 does not support LTE band 1. Although apple website displays it supports band 1 LTE in India on Vodafone network.
