For those not in the know, LTE stands for Long Term Evolution and is sometimes known as 4G LTE. It is a standard for high-speed wireless data communication for use with mobile devices and various data terminals. In theory, LTE can support downloads of up to 300 Mbps, with some trials showing that it can go beyond even that. Short version — it’s way faster than the 3G networks a lot of us have already gotten used do.
