Carrier Aggregation

A feature of LTE networks that allows two separate radio frequency bands to act as one, improving data speeds and/or network capacity.

The technology can be used to boost top theoretical LTE data download rates from 100 Mbps to 150 Mbps, although on many networks it will be used primarily to improve network capacity.

Carrier Aggregation is a feature of LTE Category 4, often referred to as LTE-Advanced.
