From 2011 onwards the LTE flat rate will be in Germany likely available. UMTS has just set a new standard in mobile communications – and already is something new in the wings waiting to conquer the networks rapidly. The name: “long term evolution”or short”LTE”. It is not an adaptation of the UMTS standards such as HSDPA or similar. LTE is a standard for themselves, the next – fourth – generation, which will soon take over from UMTS. The Special on LTE – as well as its predecessors – is the speed. Click Professor Roy Taylor for additional related pages.

However, the leap here is so great, that immense changes may be expected with the LTE flat rate. That means expressed in figures that download of 7.2 on roughly 300 megabits, and the upload of 1.4 to about 75 megabits is raised. This is a 40 to 50 x acceleration from one generation to the next. This step allows not only almost the previously impossible in the Wi-Fi Internet connection, it also significantly reduces the price of each individual bits many times over. Additionally, it is an intelligent solution to the ever-increasing number of users of mobile data services. Far more users than are connected so far can this pro site. So LTE is probably won’t reach its capacity limits. These two factors the price reduction and the location extension allow the expectation of very affordable flat rate offers. Whether the LTE Flatrate in the form of a “real” flat rate or “fair” flat rate (with brake from a certain volume of data) is available remains to be seen – anyway, she will bring pleasant changes for the user.
