T-Mobile activates at + 4G network




The Dutch operator T-Mobile will next days 4g + activated on its network. The provider has announced that from Monday 4g + turn where possible and that Wednesday should have happened anywhere. At the end of the summer should be the 4g + network nationwide coverage.

T-Mobile activates 4g + now in places where 4G offers both the 900MHz and the 1800MHz band. Because the provider more and more places reduces the frequency spectrum for 2G in the 900MHz band in favor of 4g, think towards the end of the summer at all places where 4G also offers offer 4G + to.

4g +, a component of network technology LTE-advanced, increases the maximum theoretical download speeds of 150Mbit / s to 225Mbit / s, a maximum speed that rivals KPN and Vodafone already offer many places. The practical speed is always much lower than the theoretical maximum, but 4g + does provide higher speeds, as was previously from measurements of Tweakers.

For 4g + users need a compatible phone. Especially cheaper phones support 4G +, but also with the iPhone six series and OnePlus One lacks the necessary hardware. The iPhone 4g + 6s Series supports it, as do many high-end devices on Android and Windows Phone.

KPN and Vodafone started in 2014 with 4g +. Tele2 has limited options for that technology. Being 4g required to combine multiple frequency bands, Tele2 will be 800MHz band with the 2600MHz band, which is much less coverage than the 1800MHz frequency which can use other providers.
