The chip that was demostrated at LG's Mobile Communication Technology Research Lab in Anyang (Korea) and, in theory, can reach speeds of 100Mbps and 50Mbps in regards to downloads and uploads respectively.
Measuring 13x13 mm, the chip was tested by using a terminal that utilized Windows Mobile to play back a high quality video which resulted in 60Mbps for downloads and 20Mbps for uploads.
With a low cost scenario for upgrading the networks for mobile companies, it only makes sense that such companies are headed towards the 4G era with LTE in their mindset as it is an enhancement on the current WCDMA technology out there.
Dang LG way to go...its incredible i mean the speeds that can be attained over seas compared to here in the US are astronomical. Darn FCC. did you read that?!? 100mbps down and 50mbps up...thats faster than a cable connection.

The coolest thing about all of this is that the first "LTE to CDMA" soft handoff was successfully completely in testing in Germany. People have to understand that LTE isn't cell phone technology... it's wireless technology period ( ie.. laptops, mp3 players, anything that can transmit data wirelessly ). Yes, it IS faster than cable is .... CURRENTLY. As for the cell companies here in the U.S., Verizon and AT&T will implementing LTE sometime around early 2010. T-Mobile hasn't made a decision yet and Sprint ( if they are still around by then ) will be using WiMax. From what I hear, LTE will even be compatible with certain WiMax devices.... hence the Open Access Device policy Verizon has in place. It will be interesting to see which standard will come out the winner in the future.
