    And, just to add an additional thought, I guess we'll see tiers next. "Would you like the 40, 80, 120, 150, or 300 mbps plan speeds?".
    Un-Rogered, and getting better 'value'.

    @Class,

    "CA-not config", in this context, is NOT referring to the UE or "it has been disabled / crippled" - it is rather the eNodeB does not configure the UE to connect with the PCell and SCell in CA. Try to find out the "TM_mode" your particular Note 4 detects first... but again, a firmware update for Note 4 is surely coming.

    LOL! Too funny.

    But I think ROBBELUS doesn't need ideas about tiered data speed. Or any other way to increase prices. They have a department just for that.

    The only scenario that I could think of where LTE-A would be useful is if both bands are so congested that you need to aggregate them to get a usable speed.

    There's an unexpected downside to LTE-A too if you read my Note Edge review. I tested it on Rogers in an area where you'd get ~40/15Mbps on band 4 and ~100/40Mbps on band 7. While putting them together results in download speeds of over 140Mbps, the upload was only running on band 4 so I was only getting around 15Mbps up. If I was uploading a lot of stuff I would be better off with a non-CA phone that was connected to band 7.

For most people and for everyday mobile usage (browsing, streaming, etc.), whether you're pulling 20Mbps, 150Mbps, or 300Mbps, it's not going to make one shred of difference.

    Could the Nexus 5 be capable of Carrier-Aggregation, thus allowing it to connect to the LTE-Advanced network with a future firmware update?

    Doubt that will happen, why would anyone subscribe to the higher tier speeds and pay more if they do not need it? (As suggested)
    They will just increase prices across the board (as per their normal)

    Total hype, I think you took me seriously. I was just horsing around saying that ROBBELUS doesn't need our input to raise prices and tiered was just reiterating the joke by Class.
