What is LTE? LTE stands for Long Term Evolution, it is one of the marketing terminology for wireless telecommunication.
First off, LTE is not 4G, it is instead 3.9G. What is does that mean?
Looking back at history, there was 1G, then 2G came long with faster performance, follwed by 2.5G (EDGE), and finally in the recent years 3G was popular. 3G supported many higher applications like video streaming but it was not fast enough for common day Internet/wireless activities such as video conferencing.
Then comes along 3.9G, which is LTE. Many telecommunication companies name LTE as the 4G branding, probably due to marketing schemes. But do not be fooled, 4G is much faster than LTE specifications. However, LTE can be banded to support speeds up to and as fast as 4G technical speeds but the technology is different.
LTE exists because a standard for 4G does not exist. But many telecommunication companies needed to leverage speeds much superior to 3G, so a temporary solution was proposed. This temporary solution became promoted to a long term solution known as, LTE, you got it, simply because so much money was invested during the competitive race to push out wireless communcation onto the market.
Next time you are purchasing a wireless device, consider carefully the marketing terms used.
