What is LTE?

18 Aug 2020

LTE is the abbreviation of Long Term Evolution. It is a 4G standard used worldwide for transferring data over cellular networks. The terms 4G and LTE are often used synonymously; however, they don’t mean the same thing. There are different 4G standards, and LTE is one of the most common. It provides 10x the speeds of 3G networks.

LTE offers higher peak data transfer rates, reduced latency and scalable bandwidth capacity, so that users access services easily in near real time and experience limited lagging.
