LTE is the newest technology in wireless that is classified as a 4G (4th Generation) service by the 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project) the group that is responsible for standardizing and improving wireless and mobile networks. The primary advantages of LTE over older technologies are the ability to user wider channels which in turn allows us to offer higher download speeds to customers, reduced latency which improves the customers experience to the internet by having a quicker response from websites and applications. LTE is also new enough that there are years of development ahead that will allow us to continue to offer higher speeds and allow us continued growth to accommodate more customers.
