T-Mobile continues to push the boundaries of 5G technology, achieving a peak speed of “above 3.6 Gbps” in a recent test call using six-carrier aggregation technology. This “mind-blowing” speed would allow users to download a two-hour HD movie in less than 7 seconds, although this level of speed is currently only achievable in controlled testing environments.
While the average user may not experience speeds of 3.6 Gbps in their day-to-day activities, T-Mobile’s commitment to advancing 5G technology is evident. By combining six 5G channels of mid-band spectrum, T-Mobile aims to deliver higher speeds and expand coverage.
This achievement follows the rollout of four-carrier aggregation last year, which offered theoretical speeds of over 3.3 Gbps. The goal is to maximize network capacity without relying solely on high-band airwaves, providing users with faster speeds in a variety of locations.
Although six-carrier aggregation is not yet ready for mass deployment, T-Mobile is actively working on this and other innovative 5G technologies. As a result, T-Mobile continues to lead the way in 5G advancements and breakthroughs.
