Today NetCom (norwegian mobile operator owned by swedish Telia) set a world record in mobile speeds. Utilising a "4.5G" mobile connection.

Here is the Google Translated article from their magazine.

1.2 Gbit/s. One thing is for sure: We are quickly moving into a future where the available speed via mobile devices will be able to outperform most regular land lines today (with the exclusion of fibre).

Pretty cool. 4G is already faster than WiFi for me, since I only have a 30Mbps plan.

4G is not faster than WiFi but faster than your base fibre plan, WiFi can do some quick speeds still

The amount of spectrum required for such speeds means they'll never be realistic for most operators.

I can't find anything detailing the setup of their trial but it will involve CA across multiple bands, and probably used somewhere in the vicinity of 80MHz - 100MHz of spectum across those bands - that's something that most operators in the world can only dream of.

Here in NZ we're really lucky that our networks have lots of spectrum so can deliver good LTE speeds now. I've seen pretty close to 300Mbps in the real world and once devices actually exist to bond 700+1800+2600 we will see that increase significantly. Compare that to the US where they get super exicted if they can get more than 10Mbps on their LTE networks!

Our 3G has got slower and slower over the last 6 months or so (today testing at 8.1 Mbps, was generally over 20 six months ago and before) so this kind of speed is but a pipe dream!

Can a mobile device even write that fast to storage?
