LTE Speed

The new mobile technology Long Term Evolution (LTE ) promises particularly high rates of data transmission: Both when downloading from the internet, and when sending data, the speed is much faster than the older LTE wireless data technology UMTS with HSPA.

LTE Receiving data

In LTE networks, which are currently being commonly built in Asia and Europe, the operation speeds of theoretically up to 50 megabits per second (Mbit/s) when receiving data are already available. HSPA+, fastest wireless technology in 3G mobile network enables downloading of theoretically up to 43.2 Mbit/s.

LTE may actually even more. However, at speeds up to one gigabit per second (Gb/s) are possible only under laboratory conditions. The data rate depends on several factors. Determined the width of a frequency channel, the amount of data can be sent simultaneously. Several antennas increase in the transmitter and the receiver velocity.

What is the real average speeds will be using LTE in reality remains to be seen. In the U.S. you get in well-developed LTE network of Verizon Wireless at an average speed of about 10 megabits per second and can compete with DSL connections.

The transmission of data

When sending data rates, download can also be achieved, far higher mathematically than the current transmission rate. Technically feasible there are theoretical data rates of up to 86.4 Mbit/s.

Once again, we will have to see how high the rate offered is real then. It is determined by the technology, but also through the utilization of the radio cell or the distance of the user to the transmission tower.
