Does 700 MHz improve reception?

I once read that the lower frequencies penetrate walls better and travel further. Is there any truth to this at all? And if so, will the new spectrum have a very drastic impact on reception?

What you read is true.

However, 700 MHz is not much different than 850 MHz. In fact, 850 (cellular) almost starts where 700 ends. Therefore you won't see much difference compared to cellular networks.

You might see a difference compared to an all-1900 network like Sprint or T-Mobile, but they didn't buy 700 MHz spectrum, so that's a moot point.
