LTE will be 230 per cent more efficient than 3G, Ofcom says
Posted by Graham Keen on Tue 17th May 2011



4G technology will bring over three times more mobile broadband capacity to the UK from 2013, Ofcom said on Thursday.
 
 
According to research conducted by the telecoms regulator, LTE (long-term evolution) is 230 per cent more spectrally efficient than HSPA, the 3G technology that currently provides cellular data connectivity to the country. However, LTE was not the only 4G technology considered in the research - Ofcom also looked at emerging and later generations of LTE's big rival, WiMax.
 
Stephen Unger, Ofcom's chief technology officer, said the efficiency of 4G spectrum use would increase even more by the end of the decade, by which point technologies such as the future LTE Advanced standard should be in place.
