T-Mobile’s 4G speed tests increase with frequency of use 3g




T-Mobile makes a test to increase the rate of 4g by using the frequency of 3g. The theoretical maximum speed to go from 225Mbit / s to 300Mbit / s. Smartphones have their Support for LTE band 1.

T-Mobile can do that because the extension decision of the 3G frequencies, which last week took effect, states that the permit ‘technology-neutral’ is. This means that providers themselves may know what technology they offer at that frequency. T-Mobile is 10MHz of the 20MHz using it in the 2100MHz band for 4G.

The provider says it can, but spokeswoman Kathleen Shed Tweakers claims against it in terms of capacity “is far from necessary. “Every 4g location of T-Mobile is prepared for the Netherlands.” This is possible because masts are equipped with SingleRAN -zendapparatuur.

If the provider will deploy 4G at 2100MHz, T-Mobile takes into account the traffic on the 3G network. “It may be in areas where the call and data transfer via 3G is not extremely high, otherwise we have more than 10MHz required for 3G at 2100MHz, besides the 3G on 900MHz. The data traffic on 3G is steadily off and call traffic is not so much spectrum needs. ”

This makes 4G at 2100MHz possible in more than half of the Netherlands, says the provider. This ‘LTE band 1’ is the third frequency band that will actively use T-Mobile 4G. It will primarily use the 1800MHz frequency and in addition to that it began last year with 4G at 900MHz. T-Mobile is the first Dutch provider speaks 4g at 2100MHz. Vodafone is also working with 4g to 300Mbit / s, but it is via 2.6 GHz frequencies, KPN has with that test.
