dickytim: I thought maximum speed was 150mbps. down 51 mbps up

Not sure but I think 150mb/s is LTE advanced


Quite a bit off LTE advanced that is like category 10

No I realise I was just saying that the max theoretical speed of LTE advanced is 150mb/s down and 51 up.

just some questions:

1. Is LTE real 4G or is it just branded as 4G?

2. Exactly how far away are we from LTE advanced?

Google LTE advanced


From Wikipedia - LTE-Advanced provides almost 3.3 Gbit peak download rates per sector of the base station under ideal conditions.

From Coffee Baron on Page 17 of this thread - Vodafone running Cat4 = 150/50 
But some devices will only be Cat3 = 100/50

Firebreaker: 2. Exactly how far away are we from LTE advanced?



Since I don't work for Vodafone I couldn't answer this question but knowing the kit Vodafone have deployed they have the ability to switch on LTE Advanced within a very short period of time should they choose to do so.

There is no point is doing so however because there are no mass market LTE advanced devices and the only live LTE Advanced network is a small scale network in Moscow.

So if Vodafone wanted to theoretically they could have deployed LTE advanced over just standard LTE and would there have been higher costs to deploy LTE advanced?

well i suppose they'd have to pay for extra bandwidth in their backhaul, upgrade their internal network to deal with the traffic maybe?

From my understanding you don't need more bandwidth with LTE advanced in fact you could have much less, of course if I am wrong I would love to be corrected.

i dont mean more spectrum, i mean like they'll have to pay chorus more for more bandwidth from the cellsite to their core network, would they not?

If there are no devices that support it, then there would be no extra bandwidth since nobody wouldbe using it.

There are probably licensing costs, so not point paying for licenses when it is not being used.
