Cellular LTE technology will change the world

Jan 31, 2012

Do you love your smartphone but hate your service provider? LTE may change that.

This week on The Digital Future, Strategic News Service publisher Mark Anderson says new LTE (Long Term Evolution) technology will make a huge difference in our lives.

LTE should allow you to download data 30 times faster than current 3G technology. That's similar to the performance of wired Internet connections offered by cable or DSL.

Verizon is leading the way, offering LTE service in more than 137 American cities.

Just as cell phones are causing landlines to disappear in homes, Mark believes this new wireless bandwidth will change the way we live and interact with each other.

Carrying high bandwidth Internet connections in our pockets will make accessing services, information and people through cyberspace more intuitive and natural than ever before.
