A Twofold Increase is Expected in Number of 4G-LTE Networks By 2017

By 2017, there will be quite a lot of growth in 4G-LTE networks on a worldwide basis. In fact, they are expected to double in amount within that time period. And they will be spread out, 465 of them, over a wide terrain covering 128 nations on a global level. 4G-LTE offers markedly improved speeds, much greater than 3G mobile facilities.

However, the fast timing depends on the traits of each unique network. The download averages vary from one speed to another. They may be 24-30Mbps or 10-15Mbps. But all of them are much quicker than 3G technology. By 2017, 4G-LTE has been slated to reach one billion of the more than eight billion mobile connections on the face of the planet.

In China, China Mobile will be the major carrier to offer LTE technology. It will be imitated by China Telecom and China Unicom. Meanwhile, in the UK there are such top players like EE along with O2, Vodafone and Three. The LTE craze began three years ago. It will therefore have taken seven years for it to have reached a user base of one billion. But that lies in the future.

The population pie can be divided between the American market, the European continent and the Asian sector. The US has a lead over others by covering 90% LTE facilities in its provenance. Almost 47% of such sustenance happens to be in Europe. Only 10% of LTE amenities are available in Asia. Globally if you look at it, LTE technology has been distributed over 12 different frequency bands. And four-fifths of these come in four varieties: 700MHz, 800MHz, 1800MHz and 2600MHz.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
