HTC Holiday, AT&T's first LTE-enabled phone, meets and greets the FCC
posted by Alan F. / Sep 29, 2011, 2:58 PM
Known in other parts of the world by a different name, such as the HTC Raider in South Korea, the LTE connectivity on the phone will produce theoretical download speeds of 100Mbps and upload speeds at 50Mbps, which is much faster than AT&T's current HSPA+ 4G network. Earlier this month, we showed you a picture of the device running on AT&T's LTE network showing download speeds on SpeedTest.Net of 29Mbps and upload speed of 6.43Mbps which is just a fraction of the speed that this model is capable of showing. According to the FCC's paperwork, the HTC Holiday will run over the 1700/2100/700 LTE bands.

The so 2100 is an LTE band. The Atrix uses this band aswell.

100mbps!! that's high, even for theoretical speed, so what are the other carriers theoretical download/upload speeds?

AT&T testing, or rather 3rd party testing, of the new LTE 4G network shows it going faster than 40Mbps, but when everyone has a 4G device, then we shall see how things go. MY understanding of 4G LTE is that a carrier can more easily manage the congestion. Eventually, EDGE (2G) will be reused as 3G/4G.

The LTE test was 29Mbps, unless you're talking about a different test just recently that I'm unaware of. The only publicly shown info on a test was from speedtest.net in Texas. and 29 was the speed. I'm 100% on that. It's on this site somewhere but I'm too lazy to link it right now.

everybody knows that At&T as well as Verizon will be or are running LTE juices over 700MHZ spectrum. Anyone here reads anything? Also NO ONE gets those ridiculous speeds you guys are claiming. Although outbursts of more have been seen; On a good day you would get no more that 12 mbs / 5mbs on Verizon. Even At&T COO said their LTE pipelines will get speeds " comparable" to those of Verizon.... Be real.....
