I don't even know if ZTE products can perform as well as Huawei much Ericsson. FLOW has Uplink & Downlink Carrier Aggregation going in Kingston and some serious 2 20x20 MHz LTE channels pumping out 200 Mbit/s on a normal day. Factor in FLOW's latent plans for VoLTE on their Low band spectrum & (soon) practically unlimited everything plans... Digicel cannot compete with just Band 17. Digicel's Engineering is probably working hard on making the network more zippy. They've gone Band 4 across the KMA (for the most part) but could perhaps get a boost from 2600 MHz (Band 7). FLOW may perhaps be working on getting those licences too given their recent comments. Alas....
    Digicel should have just remain with Ericsson Networks or go with Nokia or Huawei for affordability. As someone who is more learned in the Telecoms industry than myself, do you see Digicel recovering from its current woes. And matching Flow in LTE Network technology? I know Flow will have a speed advantage for the foreseeable future. But I'm hoping Digicel can compete in LTE in due course.

    A little further down, if Carrier aggregation is added. You will see CA Added and under that you will see the aggregated band and its channel bandwidth. Which would be band 4 10mhz for Digicel.
    I see ......

    OK, that means its not yet enabled for use. Its still being optimized and tuned. If no CA wasn't present, it would would say CA not added.

    I'd say to compare this with a FLOW device. I don't think you'll see 4G+/LTE+ unless you're in an active data session. Digicel may have LTE Advanced in MoBay but it may not be as widely available as the competition (their network is built around Band 4 vs. Band 17 which defines Digi's builds).
