Danish operator TDC has embarked on a ‘4G+’ network deployment using carrier aggregation (CA) technology in three frequency bands. According to the operator, while potential users could achieve theoretical download speeds of up to 300Mbps, the actual downlink is dependent on the capacity of each cell tower (which is shared between the active users on the mast). TDC disclosed that 4G+ is already enabled on nearly 500 base transceiver stations (BTS) in selected locations in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Odense, Aalborg, Holstebro, Viborg, Esbjerg, Naestved and Slagelse.
TDC launched its 2600MHz Long Term Evolution (LTE) network, capable of delivering downlink of 150Mbps, in October 2011, while 800MHz LTE followed in February 2013. The 4G service is currently available to 99.5% of the population.
