LTE-Advanced Certified by ITU as True 4G
At a meeting in Geneva this week, the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) formally ratified Long Term Evolution-Advanced as a 4G technology. According to the ITU, LTE-Advanced and other true 4G technologies are capable of delivering peak download speeds of 1Gbps in localized configurations and 100Mbps for mobile devices. The ITU expects such networks to use more than 20MHz of spectrum per channel. Now that the base technology has been ratified, LTE-Advanced will move to the next stage of development, which is to create the in-depth technical standards for the technology.

Probably wont be deployed til 2013 at the earliest. . .
But hey, bring on the speed wars! Is what I say. Next year Tmo will be upgrading to 42mb/s HSPA+ with real world speeds probably between 18-25mb/s. AT&T, well whatever, they consider HSPA+ to be 14mb/s so their behind already, as they usually are, Sprint/Clear will probably stay the same 3-6mb/s til at least the endof 2011. And Verizon 5-12mb/s, maybe with bursts up to 20-25mb/s.
I'm hoping to see these carriers get into a speed war. See who can push who to bring ever faster speeds!
2011 will be a very, very exciting year in the wireless world. Starting with CES, January 6th.
funny because on my htc evo on my speedtest.net app from the android market i consistently get speeds of 8-10mbps on 2/3 bars of 4g signal -- on full signal i get over 10mbps -- so before you start declaring speeds like you know any...
about damn time
now maybe everyone will stop marketing their faux G networks.
I LOVE IT!!!
I'll be calling them all faux G until I see a real-world 100 Mbps deployment accessible by the general publ...
