Thanks for the post. I keep telling people that in the shrt term the only aspect of LTE Advanced that consumers are going to benefit from is aggregated carriers. Too many folks believe that if a wireless co installs LTE Advanced as is on their existing networks, that their speeds are going to go up. And that's not going to happen.
