What is a 4G network? What is the difference between 3G and 4G LTE?
I know 4G network is very fast but I don’t know how fast is it. And also why it usually called 4G LTE.
LTE stands for Long Term Evolution. It’s a term used for the particular type of 4G that delivers the fastest mobile Internet experience.
‘G’ stands for generation, that means 4G is the most current generation of cell phone network coverage and speeds. Using a 4G smartphone on Verizon’s 4G LTE network means you can download files from the Internet up to 10 times faster than with 3G.
I found a comprehensive comparison chart, you can have a look.
|Data Throughput||Up to 3.1Mbps with an average speed range between 0.5 to 1.5 Mbps||Practically speaking, 2 to 12 Mbps (Telstra in Australia claims up to 40 Mbps) but potential estimated at a range of 100 to 300 Mbps.|
|Peak Upload Rate||5 Mbps||500 Mbps|
|Switching Technique||packet switching||packet switching, message switching|
|Network Architecture||Wide Area Cell Based||Integration of wireless LAN and Wide area.|
|Services And Applications||CDMA 2000, UMTS, EDGE etc||Wimax2 and LTE-Advance|
|Forward error correction (FEC)||3G uses Turbo codes for error correction.||Concatenated codes are used for error corrections in 4G.|
|Peak Download Rate||100 Mbps||1 Gbps|
|Frequency Band||1.8 – 2.5 GHz||2 – 8 GHz|
So far, LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition is the only one which supports the 4G LTE network. That’s one of the reason why everybody loves it.
