Long Term Evolution (LTE)

This acronym refers to the ongoing process of improving wireless technology standards. LTE technology is the next step in increasing broadband speeds to meet the demands of users and the variety of content accessed over mobile networks.

The overall objective for LTE is to provide an extremely high performance radio-access technology that offers full speed mobility and that can readily coexist with HSPA and earlier networks. Because of scalable bandwidth, operators will be able to easily migrate their networks and users from HSPA to LTE over time.
