Leading carrier Sprint announced that it would allow three-carrier aggregation for iPhone 7, 7 Plus, Galaxy S7 Edge, LG V20 and LG G5 smartphones. One needs to note that HTC Bolt has already given the faster LTE-Advanced specification by Sprint.
The driving force behind the LTE Advanced specification is the increased bandwidth of LTE connection, which allows downloading data from multiple network bands simultaneously.

It said that this technique offers peak speeds of more than 200 Mbps compared to the limit of 100 Mbps which two-carrier aggregation provides. Last Friday via software update Sprint rolled out the three-carrier aggregation. And if you are having one of the smartphones mentioned above, then you must have felt the difference already.
If still, you are not experiencing the difference, then there can be some factors you need to check. The Sprint spokeswoman confirmed that 13 of the 19 three carrier aggregation capable Sprint phones are now supported.
US Cities who are now supporting Sprint’s three channel carrier aggregation are San Francisco, Chicago, Minneapolis, Denver, Dallas, Cleveland, Kansas City, Atlanta, Columbus, Seattle, and Miami. It is surprising to many to see major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, and Boston are missing from the list.
