    Samsung has just added a new variant to it's successful Galaxy Note 4 lineup. This new entry is dubbed the LTE-A Tri-Band CA Galaxy Note 4.
    This new device handles 3 frequency bands simultaneously and aggregate them into a single faster connection.
    Samsung says is the first "commercially available" smartphone with such a setup, supports both Category 6 (up to 300 Mbps) and Category 9 (up to 450 Mbps) LTE networks -- but the kicker here is its ability to pick out and jump between the best available bandwidths.
    Anandtech reports that it's also packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset, which would be an improvement on the standard Note 4's Snapdragon 805. Rumor has it that this beast will only be available in Korea as Category 6 and 9 networks have a small presence worldwide.

    But, who do you pay for the service provided if you're jumping between bands, which means jumping between carriers...?

    I believe a single carrier could have multiple LTE bands. A 20/20 and 20/40 Mhz. Sounds like the device would select the best available band.

    Ah. I was reading this to be more like the difference between what used to be CDMA and GSM and being able to go between those technologies.

    I wasn't thinking about bands on the same technology. That makes a bit more sense...I think...Haha

    And the other countries, particularly Asian and Chinese continue to dominate the world and lead technological advancements, leaving the US in their dust! SMH

    You can thank all the government influences that we need to fight. FCC for one.

    Keep in mind that many of these countries started building their cellular networks from the ground up, whereas we, (the US) started off using existing networks already in place, mainly to save money.
    So obviously their hardware is going to reflect this and often be a generation ahead of ours, simply because the backbone of their networks can accommodate the speed/bandwidth.

    And concentration of people. Easier to deploy infrastructure when you don't have to fight mountains and prairies.

    I agree and understand, but allow me to vent for a moment. We're more than capable of commiting to be the most advanced country on the globe with respect to technology. We've done it in the past when it became an initiative from the top, and we've done it independently when creativeness was allowed to flourish. First to fly, first on the moon, and those are just two of literally countless firsts by the USA when we were strong.

    The US cellular carriers could easily upgrade the systems to meet or exceed the best networks on other continents and accomplish this inside of a year, but it would cost them. Well, that's the problem...they are making money hand over fist now, charging us far more per capita for connectivity and communications versus other countries, and with technology that is 2-3 or more years behind some third-world countries so why would they?

    We have what are considered to be arguably the best possible education institutions in the world. Many people, possibly millions but most certainly hundreds of thousands of people from other countries travel to the USA each year to get their education, and then - due to poor governmental regulations take that often subsidized education back to other countries - their homeland, where it is used to advance their own personal, and their country's financial positions. We are subsidizing the development of other countries and yet our own can't get an education without going so deep into debt that they're bankrupt on paper no later than by the time they graduate if not sooner - in many cases right out of the gate.

    We have access to one of, if not the most skilled labor forces in the world, and yet we have unemployment in the double-digits (including those who've given up looking). We have an increasing poverty rate, and yet our companies are taking their business overseas, outsourcing manufacturing, and in some cases moving completely outside of the USA, again due to the government's terrible tax and trade policies.

    Then those companies who make these products at pennies on the dollar in labor overseas, turn back around and sell it to the people of this country and our dollars go back across the border to the other countries. This IS the Fleecing of America. If we had "100% Made in America" pasted on products we buy and use now, we would be far better off.

    I'm off my soapbox now.

    I absolutely agree with everything you pointed out. The fact is, that ship has sailed a long time ago. This country has/had the potential to be the best at everything you mentioned above, (and more) but we lost focus on this decades ago when our government, our corporations and people in general, decided that making a quick buck was much more important than providing the best product, the best education, the best technology and the list goes on and on...

    We are so far behind the rest of the world now that there is no "repairing" what we've done to ourselves over the years. The overall mindset of your average American is one of, there's no point in trying because that would require work. Work people aren't willing to do.
    For example, look at how France has rallied as a country over the recent shootings over there. You would never see anything of that magnitude from the people in this country. To put it bluntly, people simply can't be bothered. This is the mindset that has slowly made this country lose focus on what it means to be an American. And until we change this mindset and decide (as a whole) that we want our country back, I'm afraid things are only going to get worse.
