4G ,LTE based Mobile Broadband Users to exceed a billion, cover 85% global mark

A
1billion users to have 4g  by 2017


ITU ( international Telecom Union ) estimates show that
 there are 2.1 billion active mobile-broadband subscriptions in the world  till 2013 , this is people with a 3G or 4G connection). 

Users with mobile broadband  consists of  29%of the global population, and mobile broadband subscriptions  have grown 40% YoY over the last 3 years years Mobile  broadband today outnumber fixed broadband subscriptions by a ratio 3:1

Meanwhile  there were   176 million LTE ( Long term Evolution or 4G number) users by 2013 ,compared to 90 million in 2012. However  by 2017  the number of LTE  users across the world is expected to number about a billion..and would account for  about 1 out 8 mobile connections .A recent Ericson report " projects  that 85% of the world’s population will be covered by high-speed mobile networks by 2017.In the United States, LTE networks cover  90% of population, compared to 47% in Europe and 10% in Asia

The Fastest Mobile Networks in US: 2011 Data

PCMag hit the road to test eight 3G and 4G networks in 21 U.S. cities. Before you buy your next phone or tablet, find out which wireless carrier has the fastest data network where you live.


Total of 16 handsets were used by the PC Mag  Team  shepherded by six drivers to 21 cities, covering more than 6,000 miles. The Phones used by PCMag were

AT&T: Samsung Infuse 4G
Cricket: LG Optimus C
MetroPCS: Samsung Galaxy Indulge
Sprint 3G: HTC EVO 4G
Sprint 4G: HTC EVO 4G
T-Mobile: Samsung Galaxy S 4G
Verizon 3G: Droid Incredible by HTC
Verizon 4G: HTC Thunderbolt
The Results have been summarized Below




AT&T's nationwide 3G network still offers the best balance of speed and performance outside major cities, but the giant carrier is struggling in big cities against Verizon's LTE network and T-Mobile's nimble HSPA+ technology. AT&T is moving to HSPA+ 21 right now and plans to introduce an LTE network this summer, so we could see the carrier's position recover in 2012.

Verizon Wireless
has two very different networks: a slow, but reliable nationwide 3G network and a blazingly fast 4G LTE network with limited coverage. The combination seems to be working out, as Verizon's 4G system swept our Fastest Mobile Networks awards while its 3G voice network got top marks in our Readers' Choice awards for its terrific coverage and call quality.

T-Mobile
was the second-fastest network nationwide, and it's continuing to upgrade its speeds all the time. The carrier's existing HSPA+ 21 network is being replaced by HSPA+ 42, which could provide LTE-like speeds. (See our review of the T-Mobile Rocket 3.0 4G Laptop Stick for a first look at HSPA+ 42). Of course, all of this could come to an end if AT&T buys T-Mobile, as the larger company has pledged to shut down T-Mobile's network to use the airwaves for LTE.

Sprint is struggling with speed and consistency, and the partner it relies on for its WiMAX network, Clearwire, has perpetual financial problems. But Sprint has one huge advantage: the nation's only truly unlimited 4G plan, making it the only network that you can use to replace a home Internet connection.

3GPP( LTA )Mobile Network Technology in Infographics

Long Term Evolution Via ced Magazine
Long Term Evolution Infographic by Column Five Media
3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE), is the latest standard in the mobile network technology tree that produced the GSM/EDGE and UMTS/HSPA network technologies. It is a project of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), operating under a name trademarked by one of the associations within the partnership, the European Telecommunications Standards Institute

GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE), is the latest standard in the mobile network technology tree that produced the GSM/EDGE and UMTS/HSPA network technologies.

MetroPCS, Verizon Wireless and AT&T Mobility in the United States and several worldwide carriers announced plans, beginning in 2009, to convert their networks to LTE. The world's first publicly available LTE-service was opened by TeliaSonera in the two Scandinavian capitals Stockholm and Oslo on the 14th of December 2009.

The LTE specification provides downlink peak rates of at least 100 Mbps, an uplink of at least 50 Mbps and RAN round-trip times of less than 10 ms. LTE supports scalable carrier bandwidths, from 1.4 MHz to 20 MHz and supports both frequency division duplexing (FDD) and time division duplexing (TDD).

Verizon Wireless announced their expansion into the 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) realm. It’s an important move since competitors such as Sprint have already taken the first steps into their own WiMax-based 4G network, which is now available in nearly 50 market markets. Lowell McAdam, CEO of Verizon Wireless, announced that 38 metropolitan areas will cover nearly 110 million Americans by the end of this year. The company’s 4G LTE networks will also extend to over 60 airports across the country.

Part of the LTE standard is the System Architecture Evolution, a flat IP-based network architecture designed to replace the GPRS Core Network and ensure support for, and mobility between, some legacy or non-3GPP systems, for example GPRS and WiMax respectively.The LTE standard can be used with many different frequency bands. There are planned 700 MHz deployments in North America (Verizon); 900, 1800, 2600 MHz in Europe; 1800 and 2600 MHz in Asia; 1800 MHz in Australia.
