Earlier today, we saw the first unboxing photos of the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-Advanced model which comes with the Snapdragon 800. The rumor had been that the device would be launching in about a week, because SK Telecom's LTE-Advanced network was ahead of schedule; but, it turns out that both the device and the network are ready right now...

Well in my country it's 30 mega (bytes) per second. It is very reliable and stays at that speed all the time. Hah got cha, I meant kilobytes. -_____-

The first one is some company in Russia (who has the network but doesn't sell phones).

This is what true 4G speeds are supposed to be like. When this comes to the states I'm sure the carriers here will be calling LTE-A "5G" or "4G+" or something.

Blah, always 'theoretical speeds'... Listen up folks, the real world speeds is always like 15% of the speeds listed anywhere on the internet, except from real users. Under typical conditions, especially with the population density of South Korea, I'd be amazed if you could get over 30mbps ever.

Thats home internet. Everything is connected by fiber optics, so yes it is fast... Not so for networks. If you live in a dense city, or you've ever tried to use your phone in a crowded place like a sports game or any event, you would notice weaker signals and slower speeds.

Yeah, some people living in some suburbs or out in the country will get the amazing 30mbps on current LTE, but it's not like that for everyone.
