** LTE guide: what LTE is, how it works, and how it affects you **

Terms like 4G and LTE have been tossed around with abandon the past year or
so. Every carrier is either touting their LTE network, or promising
you’ll have it soon. LTE is definitely our future, but it’s not our
present. We are on the brink of some really fast data transmission speeds,
so let’s get to know our new friend LTE. Is it really the new Standard?
More importantly, when will you get it?

*LTE* (*Long-Term Evolution*, commonly marketed as *4G LTE*) is a standard
for wireless communication of high-speed data for mobile phones and data
terminals. It is based on the GSM/EDGE and UMTS/HSPA network technologies,
increasing the capacity and speed using a different radio interface
together with core network improvements.^[1]^[2] The standard is developed
by the 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project) and is specified in its
Release 8 document series, with minor enhancements described in Release 9.

LTE is the natural upgrade path for carriers with both GSM/UMTS networks
and CDMA2000 networks. The different LTE frequencies and bands used in
different countries will mean that only multi-band phones will be able to
use LTE in all countries where it is supported.

Although marketed as a 4G wireless service, LTE (as specified in the 3GPP
Release 8 and 9 document series) does not satisfy the technical
requirements the 3GPP consortium has adopted for its new LTE Advanced
standard. The requirements were originally set forth by the ITU-R
organization in its IMT Advanced specification. However, due to marketing
pressures and the significant advancements that WiMAX, Evolved High Speed
Packet Access and LTE bring to the original 3G technologies, ITU later
decided that LTE together with the aforementioned technologies can be
called 4G technologies.^[3] The LTE
