LTE (4G) is a mobile communication standard that combines the key advantages of 3G technologies (mobility) and fixed access (data transfer speeds of up to 300Mbps). 4G technologies allow downloading and uploading large amounts of data fast. They allow watching HD videos and sharing files without using wired Internet access. At present 4G is the most rapidly developing communication standard with over 400 carriers across the globe.
