Default Iphone 5 UK vs US model

I read on a few forums that if you buy an unlocked iphone 5 in the UK it wont work properly in the US with a US sim? Is this true? Is it better to get an iphone 5 in the US?

I heard it was due to LTE bands or something very technical beyond me!

Is this true from anyone with experience?

Regards
