We consumers love LTE. And once we start using it, any lesser wireless network just won’t suffice.
Want proof? Try this—once a smartphone user gains access to an LTE network, his or her data consumption jumps by nearly 170 percent compared to usage on a 3G connection! And consider this—when an LTE user travels to an area that only offers some form of 3G, the relative slowness and sluggishness of the network is quite noticeable, and highly frustrating.
CommScope has a new infographic about “Transitioning to LTE in Wireless Networks.” It includes stats and information about what’s involved in an LTE network upgrade. One area I want discuss is why LTE adoption is occurring so quickly.
