Re: Trade-offs
Sounds like they're doing what they have to do. If there's limited 800Mhz spectrum carrier aggregation makes sense.  The way they promote it depends on the user expectations though. If customers are buying 4G on the basis of coverage and network quality, it's a no-brainer.  If not, time for plan B and maybe a new marketing team.

Theoretical vs. actual

Actually higher speeds beat theoretically higher speeds. Telefónica is on the right path here.

Trade-offs
Miller and Smith also mentioned that 4x4 MIMO would be more feasible with 3.5GHz devices. The issue there, of course, is that coverage is likely to be relatively poor in this band, and 3.5GHz hardly fits with Telefónica's focus on low-band airwaves.
