Hi Mark, in most locations we have up to 4 carriers of HSPA deployed in a load balanced configuration. DC HSPA really only has benefit if the network has so few customers that you could max out a single session at 21mbps on a single carrier. If you have multiple carriers and many customers there is realistically no benefit to a dual carrier config.

LTE-A will b coming in the near future, I'm looking forward to it, I'll post some lab screenshots if I can :)
