If you are looking for remarkably higher data speeds on your smart devices as compared to what 3G has been able to provide. 4G LTE is going to be your best bet.
It has been a while that the mobile industry has relied on the 3G/UMTS technology in order to provide the data services right at the palms of the users via their smart devices. It has been more than ten years since the struggle is being carried out in order to enhance the data speeds on the smart devices which has finally lead to the origination of the 4G LTE.
Testing the 4G LTE began by EE in October 2012 and by the end of 2013, it has already launched the 4G in the market. There is no argument over the fact that EE was the first provider that came up with the 4G since it was able to leverage the existing spectrum that lied somewhere in the 1800 MHz band. However, all of the other networks did not have a choice but to wait for the Ofcom’s spectrum auction that was organized in February 2013. Only after that could they begin to prepare their launch of 4G services that did take a bit of additional time to say the least.
O2 as well as Vodafone were capable of launching their own 4G LTE service somewhere in the August of 2013 and the market was shared by Three as well by December of the same year. Therefore, it can almost be taken for granted that EE may have been the only king of 4G market, however, over the previous few months, the competition for EE has been increasing at an incredible rate and can conveniently be anticipated to get even bigger in the years to come.
