KPN said it's on track with the testing tri-carrier aggregation on its LTE network. Since last year the Dutch operator has been testing in Delft the bundling of frequencies in the 800, 1,800 an 2,600 MHz bands. In a live test environment, it achieved speeds of 391 Mbps. KPN said this is a record in the Netherlands, at 30 percent faster than previous tests. KPN is working with Ericsson on the radio network, and Qualcomm is providing chipsets for test smartphones.
