    Galaxy S23 owners will now enjoy faster T-Mobile 5G speeds

    Samsung Galaxy users in the United States will now enjoy faster 5G speeds, all thanks to T-Mobile's carrier aggregation technology. At the Mobile World Congress 2023 event in Barcelona, T-Mobile announced the successful deployment of 5G carrier aggregation on its standalone 5G network.

    5G Standalone (5G SA) debuted in several countries, including the US with T-Mobile, back in 2020. However, it wasn't until November of 2022 that the company launched its “Standalone Ultra Capacity 5G” with speeds up to 3Gbps. At launch, the service was only available for the Galaxy S23 series, but support for more devices is expected to roll out soon.

    Also, the Un-carrier previously boasted speeds of up to 3Gbps by combining three 5G channels. However, it has now been increased to 3.3Gbps after the company has aggregated four channels of the mid-band spectrum on its 5G standalone (5G SA) network.

    T-Mobile customers with a Galaxy S23 will be the first to take advantage

    Ericsson, Nokia, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., and Samsung teamed up with T-Mobile in the completion of the 5G Carrier Aggregation tech. The phone used for the project was a Samsung Galaxy S23 series model. Consequently, T-Mobile customers with a Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, or Galaxy S23 Ultra will be the first to benefit from four-carrier aggregations later this year.

    Voice over New Radio, or VoNR, was also announced by T-Mobile at MWC 2023. VoNR enables the company to transfer voice calls to its 5G network. This represents a significant development since it offers customers faster speeds and superior voice quality. VoNR was already available in Salt Lake City and Portland, and the four new ones are Cincinnati, New Orleans, New York, and Seattle. Additionally, T-Mobile plans to roll out VoNR to more cities serving more than 100 million people in the upcoming months, a far wider rollout than it had previously anticipated.
