So MTN kept the spectrum on the 3G bands so it can serve the massive population around this tower I think.

LTE more stable and better ping but slower speeds while DC-HSPA+ provides for much faster speeds but not very stable ping due to congestion I would assume.

LTE:


DC-HSPA+:

They activate the LTE on a 3MhZ MIMO as opposed to 5-10, the LTE is more of a fallback for the time being while we sit and wait.....and wait.....and wait for spectrum...
