Clearwire Achieves 90Mbps Downloads in LTE Tests
Speaking at an event in Chicago, Clearwire said that its initial real-world driving tests of Long Term Evolution technology saw download speeds as fast as 90Mbps. Clearwire tested both 10x10 MHz and 20x20 MHz network configurations with equipment provided by Samsung and Huawei. It achieved 50Mbps in the 10x10 tests and 90Mbps in the 20x20. It also saw peak upload speeds of 30Mbps through the 20x20 tests.nThe tests took place in Phoenix, Ariz. By way of comparison, Verizon Wireless is advertising LTE download speeds of between 5Mbps and 12Mbps, and uploads of 2Mbps to 5Mbps.
T-Mobile Hits 741 Mbps with LTE-LAA, Deploys LTE-U
T-Mobile today said it, too, has successfully tested LTE-LAA in real-world trials. The company claims its LTE-LAA tests reached 741 Mbps in and around Los Angeles.
Verizon Looking to Be First to Deploy 5G
Verizon Wireless wants to stay ahead of the curve and be among the first to launch fifth-generation (or 5G) wireless network technology. The company plans to begin field tests at its Innovation Centers, which are dedicated sandboxes for testing apps and services, located in San Francisco and Waltham, Mass., at some point in 2016.
FCC Gives Verizon and Qualcomm Permission to Test LTE-U
The FCC is allowing Verizon and Qualcomm to move forward with limited tests of LTE in unlicensed spectrum bands generally reserved for WiFi. Specifically, the companies are being allowed to perform small-scale tests at two Verizon facilities, one in Oklahoma City, Okla., and the other in Raleigh, N.C.
AT&T Expands 5G Trials, Claims 10Gbps Speeds

T-Mobile Claims LTE-A Lab Downloads Reach 1.175 Gbps
T-Mobile and its technology partners Nokia and Qualcomm today said they've reached peak download speeds in excess of 1.175 Gbps using LTE-A equipment in a lab. In order to reach these speeds, T-Mobile and its partners used the "4.9G" Nokia AirScale Base Station together with the Qualcomm Snapdragon X20 LTE modem mobile test device.
Clearwire announced peaks.
I'm sure they were faster anyway, but what will their speeds fall to under full load?
Even in poor RF enviornments, they are getting speeds of around 19Mb/s to 25Mb/s.
They decided to use these low numbers t...
The first is in regards to technology. When the various carriers were making the various decisions over which 4G technologies would reign supreme (Ok, I just watched the Iron Chef, sue me ), there were three really. LTE...
holy megabits batman!
Clear will switch to LTE
BAM they are LTE.
Didnt i say from jump start that "WiMax" wasnt the answer? People Jumped onto the "4G" gimmic like theres no tommorrow. (Including me) But T-mobiles HSPA+ network acually destroys "4g". Clear came across something pretty important and ...
Here another reason why...
nothing more than
is this official?
