A test of LTE speeds on commercial networks points to the future
Signals Research, an independent group for analysis, has conducted a study of TeliaSonera's LTE networks in Stockholm and Gothenburg – deployed by Ericsson and Nokia Siemens Networks respectively. As you most likely know, Telia Sonera was the first mobile operator in the world to unveil a LTE network and now, thanks to Signals Researchs' study, we have the chance to give you some facts.

According to the research, the network in Gothenburg, which was build by Nokia, is between 46% and 49% faster than the network in Stockholm created by Ericsson, while at the same time the download speeds in Gothenburg were more than 50Mbps in 31% of the time compared to only 14% in Stockholm. Most impressively, the researchers state that:

“We witnessed the theoretical peak throughput of a Category 3 device (102.05 Mbps) without even trying.”

All around impressive stuff really. Whether these speeds are classified as "4G" or not (and they should be, because they pass the 100Mbps barrier), we don't really care – it's all about the performance and this is, to put it mildly, absolutely awesome performance. Our only hope is that we will see this kind of speeds on commercial networks all over the world as soon as possible.
