Most of the mobile device manufactures don’t tell you of supported 4G LTE CA (Carrier Aggrecation) combinations on their hardware specifications but these are very important to know because they are the key factor to get best performance on your device and network.
We are not quite sure why manufacturers are so reluctant to publish this information but one of the reason could be that it is quite complicated. Many devices have carrier policy which will tell the modem to limit combinations because if device supports over 128 combinations the modem will slow down. Therefore it is better to limit CA combinations per mobile phone operator.
Tested device is EU-version and running NTG9X50C_12.06.03.00 firmware. If you like to do band locking for this device, check our article here.

Tested device is EU-version and running NTGX24_10.13.12.00 firmware. At the moment, you cannot check the current running CA-combination on AT-terminal as you can in MR1100. This issue might be resolved in the future with the new firmware release though.

These CA combos may change in the future with new firmware updates. Combinations may also vary on different consumer markets or networks.
