LTE Data rates,
frequency and bandwidth.
(OTA)in one unit of time. The comparison of data rates between 3G and 4G technologies is discussed below.
|Uplink (Theoretical)||5.7 Mbps||50 Mbps|
|Downlink (Theoretical)||14 Mbps||100 Mbps|
|Bandwidth||5 MHz||20 MHz|
LTE Data rates
Mega(10^6)bits per second. The rates are calculated using mathematical models.
In practical, the data rates are generally reduced to one fourth of mathematical figures. There are several bottlenecks in modem
physical layerand data link layer protocols that can effect actual data rate. These high data rates are highly suited for HD or 1080p videos, gaming, voip, web surfing etc.
