The largest Operator in Denmark, TDC has unveiled its new 4G+ network based on the LTE-carrier aggregation technology, promising faster mobile internet speeds for its subscribers. TDC's 4G+ network that aggregates data transmission on two frequency bands enables theoretical data rates of up to 300 Mbit/s, doubling from the current 150Mbit/s. The Operator has enabled the new technology on 500 sites throughout the country covering key areas in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Odense, Aalborg and major cities such as Holstebro, Viborg, Esbjerg, Næstved and Slagelse. 

TDC notes that currently only a few mobile phones support the new technology, and therefore only a minority of customers will experience the difference immediately. The Operator is also planning to move ahead with the testing of LTE-carrier aggregation based on three frequencies which is expected to deliver three times higher data speeds.   

Executive Vice President of TDC Operations, Peter Schleidt
Clients must not expect to get 300 Mbit / s or later 1 Gbit / s for itself.With mobile Internet is the capacity of each cell tower namely shared between the active users on the mast. It's the same principle as the expansion of highways. Several tracks in itself no higher speed. But it does mean that traffic flows better and with less queuing. More people can then get faster at the same time - the same goes with 4G +, however, lifted max speed continuously.
