A world record has been set in Finland with Elisa and Huawei achieving a speed of 1.9 Gbit/s "in the 4G network".
Although the still unfinished 5G standard is all telcos want to talk about, AT&T says its LTE-A network will eventually hit speeds of 1Gbps.
The 5G world is yet to come, but 4G LTE-A networks are happening now, according to the Global mobile Suppliers Association (GSA), mainstream technology.
With more than 15 million smartphones in Australia, OpenSignal’s sample size of 0.05% is enough for it to declare Australia’s mobile networks fast and widely available.
Nokia Networks, Deutsche Telekom and Cosmote say they’ve successfully demonstrated the first 3.5GHz LTE-A FDD-TDD 3 carrier aggregation for an improved mobile broadband experience.
Aggregating licensed and unlicensed bands to make LTE even faster on Vodafone’s mobile network with devices using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X12 LTE modems connecting to Ericsson’s small test cells worked!
Ericsson and Telstra’s 1Gbps LTE-Advanced achievement was attained via a ‘World First 5 carrier aggregation end-to-end data session over a live network.’
4G services have undergone explosive growth in the 2nd quarter of 2015 and, at the current rate, will breach the 1 billion mark in 2016. LTE-Advanced is also growing rapidly.
4G LTE-A speeds are getting a boost on Optus in Melbourne’s CBD, followed by Sydney CBD in early 2016 and both Brisbane and Adelaide’s CBDs from mid-2016.
The aggressive deployment of features bridging the gap between 4G and 5G technology, as Telstra is doing with 450Mbps+ LTE, will bring challenging considerations.
Telstra has announced at its Investor Relations day that VoLTE is active on its 4G network, Video over LTE (ViLTE) is coming and super fast LTE-A trials have hit 590Mbps in its latest trial.
Wireless trade association, ‘4G Americas’ says LTE connections have reached a milestone of 498 million LTE connections worldwide, with the AP region surpassing North America.
Vodafone has finally joined the LTE-A carrier aggregation bandwagon on 850 and 1800Mhz across its 4G metropolitan network, but is it as fast as Telstra?
Telstra feels the need for a new breed of speed, with 4GX in over 1000 towns and suburbs from 2 January 2015 as 600 new locations get switched on and masses more to come.
A previous article I had written regarding Vodafone introducing LTE-A in Melbourne due to its introduction of ‘4G+’ was incorrect - here’s why I got it wrong.
Want a Cat 4-class 700MHz capable Android Kitkat smartphone at a price that might see your jealous, overpaying friends get catty?
Melbournians on Telstra with compatible devices can be their very own 4GX-Men and 4GX-Women, leaving those on other services in a storm-like deadpool of slower connectivity.
Telstra has become the Uncanny X-Men blended in with the Fantastic 4G, with its LTE-A and now '4GX' branded equipment able to reach superhero-like speeds that make even the mighty Flash seem slow.
Telstra’s 4G LTE-A service has officially launched at last with the 4GX name, with smartphones such as the Galaxy Note 4 reaching Cat 6 LTE-A speeds and Telstra’s new 4GX hotspot launched today, too.
Optus has potentially doubled mobile data speeds with its commercial introduction of carrier aggregation.
