As predicted a couple weeks back, the British mobile operator EE has begun rolling out LTE-Advanced “4G+” across central London. The technology aggregates spectrum in EE’s 1800MHz and 2.6GHz holdings to provide “real world” peak speeds of 150Mbps and average speeds of 90Mbps, EE promised in a statement. As the carrier noted, the use of EE’s 2.6GHz spectrum will take some of the load off its existing 1800MHz 4G network, theoretically speeding things up for 4G users who don’t have the latest devices – such as the Samsung Note 4 – that can take advantage of so-called 4G+. EE also said its 4G network now covers 300 cities and large towns.
