What is the full form of LTE

LTE: Long Term Evolution

LTE is an acronym for Long Term Evolution. It is an updated version of 3G Technology that will provide its user a significantly higher data rate for both downloading and uploading. It is a wireless communications standard developed by 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). Because it provides significant improvements over 3G communications, hence also referred as 4G. It is estimated to provide about 10 time higher speed then 3G for mobile devices. LTE is designed based on Internet Protocol (IP) to support browsing websites, other IP based services and VoIP well. It streams at a speed of 100 Mbit per second and up to 1GBit per second.

LTE services are currently available in limited geographical areas and are expanding rapidly. New model Android smartphones are 4G LTE capable.


  • LTE uses different LTE frequencies and bands used in different countries which mean it will be only supported by multi-band phones.
  • It will provide upload rates up to 75.4 Mbit/s and download rate 299.6 Mbit/s.
  • Support low data transfer latencies.
  • It supports in all frequency bands.
  • It has a simple architecture.
  • It provides inter-operation and co-existence with legacy standards (e.g. GSM/EDGE, UMTS and CDMA2000) which means user can make a call or transfer data in the absence of LTE network using any of these networks.
  • It has a packet switched radio interface.
