T-Mobile Netherlands takes 4G+ service nationwide

Thursday 16 June 2016 | 10:03 CET | News
T-Mobile Netherlands announced that it has achieved nationwide coverage of 4G+. The operator started the roll-out in January and now covers 4,105 locations throughout the country. Customers with compatible devices receive speeds on average 50 percent faster over 4G+ compared to the standard LTE service, at 60 Mbps versus 40 Mbps. T-Mobile uses carrier aggregation of the 900 and 1,800 MHz bands for the service, which requires a Cat 6 or Cat 9 device. With a Cat 6 phone, the maximum theoretical speed is 300 Mbps, while Cat 9 supports up to 450 Mbps.
