KPN outlines plans for tri-carrier aggregation on 4G network

Tuesday 8 March 2016 | 10:30 CET | News
KPN plans to increase the speed of its LTE network to 375 Mbps in the coming years, from 225 Mbps currently. At its Capital Markets Day, the Dutch operator outlined plans to upgrade carrier aggregation on its 4G network. It already uses 20 MHz in the 800 MHz band and 10 MHz in the 1,800 MHz band and is expected to add another 10 MHz in the 1,800 MHz band to boost speeds. It will also incorporate 10 MHz from the 2,100 MHz band, currently used for 3G, to expand the 4G network. This will be deployed late this year or early in 2017, using tri-carrier aggregation to take the top speed to 375 Mbps.
