Telkom 3G on 850MHz Band Only?

Recently my phone (Nokia N900) has been experiencing serious stability issues when connected to Internet. Yes, it is an old phone.

 

I would just like to find out from a technician or anyone with the knowledge: does Telkom only offer 3G on the 850MHz band? https://www.frequencycheck.com/carriers/telkom-south-africa would suggest so, but better to hear from the horse's mouth Smiley Happy

I think I can answer my own question - the website is wrong. There is UMTS coverage on 2100MHz band. I tested with a Samsung phone on which you can see the frequency band in use at a specific time.

Telkom also uses 1800 and 2300 for their LTE network.

Cool. Although the phone in question can only do 3G :-)
