Sprint updating six devices to support three-channel carrier aggregation


Sprint announced three-channel carrier aggregation back in September, but so far only one device has supported it. The HTC Bolt launched with support for the technology out of the box.

The next six devices to be updated with support are the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, LG V20, and LG G5. Six more devices can support three-channel carrier aggregation, but they have not received updates to enable it.

Three-channel carrier aggregation boosts the peak download speed from over 100Mbps on two-channel carrier aggregation to over 200Mbps, giving users better data speeds and a better overall experience. The tech is now available in more than 100 markets, so hopefully those of you with a compatible phone will enjoy the free upgrade. Let us know what you think in the comments!
