    My 8 Plus in particular is aggregating Bands 2, 4 and 12 and are hitting upwards of 200+ Mbps. That addition of Band 12 makes LTE now practically ubiquitous!
    Good to know, thanks for sharing!

    Would you believe me if I told you this was 2-Carrier Aggregation at 83% of its theoretical maximum speed on FLOW's AWS & PCS LTE layers? Band 12 wasn't even active as the tertiary component carrier here... They've done some tinkering recently, Band 4 is now being made the preferred Band again with Band 12 being lowest priority (thankfully). Happy to see FLOW's still cranking out insane speeds even as they have a raft of new subscribers consuming 70+ GB of video in some cases...

    I second that, while Mobile speeds depend on many variations. Such as distance from cell site, available technology on site, modem and chipset within phone. And external interference. I've never got similar speeds from Flow, not even in HWT.

    Flow have LTE/LTE-A in St Elizabeth, St Thomas and Westmoreland?. Also is it every April each year, they make major or minor changes or adjustments to their data plan offerings?.

    This was on the Hip Strip, actually! Fastest I've ever gotten in Mobay (and Jamaica overall)...

    They very much do... they should have about 95% LTE coverage islandwide thanks to Band 12 and... soon... even MORE speed as they've enabled MFBI on 1700/2100 MHz to enable coming bandwidth additions to AWS-3 Band 66 (confirmed by an intrepid user on Twitter who'd DM'd me some screenshots & new EARFCNs being reported by UEs). That should add another 15 MHz to the network's 20 MHz of baseline Band 4 spectrum... from the looks of things, FLOW's spectrum holdings will allow users to hit up to 1.2 Gbit/s given them enabling 4x4 MIMO & 256QAM on Bands 2, 4 & 66.

    Exciting times ahead (hopefully).
