4G in the World

 

ITU established the especifications to determine a technology as 4G. The technology is considered 4G when is recognized as a IMT-Advanced(4G) system.

 

In October 2010, ITU announced officially LTE-Advanced and WirelessMAN-Advanced, part of IEEE 802.16m Wimax as IMT-Advanced(4G) technologies.

 

 

LTE speed in the world

 

The speed of LTE networks aren't uniform in the world. It is likely to show variation between countries and operators.

 

In countries where the main part of the population is concentrated in a small number of urban centers it's likely to register higher speeds through these networks. On the other hand, in countries where population is more spread these networks show a bit worse performance, due to the dificulty of coverage inside a bigger geographic area.

 

4G Speed (MBpS)

Note: Speed is measured, in real place with network holding traffic, by mobile devices in many regions of the world.

 

 

Singtel, in Singapore, has the fastest LTE network of the world, average speed of 40 Mbps. Irancell, in Iran, has the slowest LTE network hits only 3.0 Mbps.

Spectrum

 

The implmentation of LTE networks can use new spectrum:

  • 700MHz or 800MHz, frequency bands liberated after the end of the analogic TV transmission switch to Digital TV, as already happened in the United States.
  • 2.6 GHZ, which will be used by operators in Europe and in Brazil.
  • Or even in refarmed spectrum, including band of 1800MHz, which is gaining room among network operators.
