Flow also uses Ericsson equipment, which is the best in the industry. Flow also uses higher modulation and full fibre to the back haul.
    Oh - thought I saw that they were using FDD. I tried different SIMs in phone and none gave me LTE, so I kinda jumped at the prospect since I would be able to resurrect the device and use it.
    Knowing the solution doesn't mean knowing the method. Yet answering correctly and regurgitation are considered "learning" and "knowledge".

    That's a big improvement, did you notice if you're connection was LTE+/LTE advanced or it was just LTE. I've been getting 84-97Mbps on Flow LTE since deployment in December 2017.

    Digicel using TDD-LTE for their home LTE broadband service. They use FDD for Mobile. Flow uses FDD-LTE on its Mobile Network as well.
