What Is LTE Internet?

It's best described as a high-speed, wireless internet solution which offers you up to 10x the speed of 3G. It requires no fixed connection and functions on mobile signals –providing connection to your devices through the radio spectrum. Its simple plug-and-play system gives you an effortless connection to fast internet without the hassle of installation; all you need is an LTE enabled SIM, device and coverage availability in the areas of your choice.

But how does it work?

LTE works through radio frequencies, similar to other connection types such as ADSL. But, unlike older connections, LTE involves moving large amounts of data at once, as opposed to smaller packets of data –to streamline internet service and offer higher speeds. Think of LTE as a highway –there are no speedbumps so you can zoom around quicker, while older connections are more like roads in the suburbs –featuring many speedbumps which will cause you to constantly slow down and accelerate your speed. Not convenient if you’ve got somewhere to go, or something to stream.

LTE Internet Speed - How fast is it?

There is no true standard to measure the speed of LTE–as line speeds are dependent on the network provider you choose. But on average, LTE speeds average between 10 Megabits per second (Mbps) and 40Mbps.

Download and upload speeds can also vary on one package –meaning you could get a higher download speed and a slower upload speed, or vice versa. This is done to tailor the offer to the user –if you're someone who needs a higher download speed for gaming but not a high upload speed for emailing and sending files, a package like this would be ideal for you –and you can save a few extra rands, too!
