Verizon said it was able to obtain a peak data rate of 1.4 Gbps on its LTE network by using unlicensed spectrum and carrier aggregation technology.
AT&T identified three more cities where it plans to launch mobile 5G services, and used the announcement to take a swipe at rival T-Mobile.
It appears that Apple’s newest high-end iPhone, the iPhone X, does not support T-Mobile’s 600 MHz spectrum.
The mobile industry is going through a transformation with unlicensed and shared spectrum technologies such as LAA, LWA and MulteFire.
Lots of additional spectrum will be needed to take advantage of carrier aggregation. This is where unlicensed spectrum technology like LTE-U and LAA comes in.
