  • Earlier this year, SK Telecom has successfully tested LTE-Advanced 3 Band Carrier Aggregation (CA) technology in its labs. The technology aggregates 3 bands – 20MHz+10MHz +10MHz – to support speeds of up to 300Mbps. Client devices will need chipsets capable of aggregating 3 bands. SK Telecom said its testing help advance the global standardization process for LTE-Advanced 3 band CA.
