Re: What is TDD-LTE?
For example, CDMA = Code Division Multiple Access
TDMA= Time Division Multiple Access
GSM is based on Frequency division or FDD
The LTE brought to you by Verizon and ATT is FDD-LTE. In other words the carrier signals are divided by frequency allocation.
Clear is using TDD-LTE. It's carrier signal will be split using Time Division.
TDD-LTE is supposed to be much faster than FDD-LTE but we won't know exactly until the network is up and running.
TDD-LTE is NOT compatible with FDD-LTE.
Over simplified but I hope that helps.
