"Hey, brother, how about some three-carrier aggregation to spruce up your dusty Galaxy S7
or S7 edge
?," said no carrier ever. Sprint is rather touting the speed benefits you will get after it fired up its LTE Advanced three-carrier aggregation services for some phones on its network, namely the iPhone 7
and 7 Plus
, Samsung Galaxy S7
and S7 edge
, LG V20
, and LG G5
, which should be getting the update starting today.
What these phones will be getting, are peak download speeds of more than 200 Mbps, rather than the current two-channel carrier aggregation that tops at 100 Mbps. This is, of course, conditional on the strength of the network in your area, but in any case users with the latest iPhones and Galaxies and LG flagships, should be observing much faster LTE speeds after the update. Did you get it? How much faster did your downloads become?
