What is the difference between 4G in an LTE flavor versus WiMax or HSPA+?


LTE (Long-Term Evolution) networks, from both AT&T and Verizon, offer higher top speeds can be as much as 10 times faster than 3G service, with theoretical peaks of 300 Mb per second for downloads and 75 Mb per second for uploads.

T-Mobile's HSPA+ (High-Speed Packet Access plus) networks have theoretical top speeds of 42 Mb per second (as of July, 2011, averaging 3.7 Mb/s across all markets, also achieving peak speeds of 15.2 Mb/s) for downloads and 23 Mb per second for uploads.

Sprint's WiMax (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) 4G lists a theoretical top speed of more than 10 Mb per second (as of July, 2011, averaged only 3 Mb/s, peak speeds of 10.5 Mb/s) for downloads and 1 Mb per second for uploads.

But speeds are determined more by the configurations of networks than the underlying technology used, as always, just how fast and how reliable a phone or tablet runs on any cellular network varies by country, by city, by device and by carrier.




Note: the data rates between Kilobits per second (Kbps), Kilobytes per second (KBps), Megabits per second (Mbps) and Megabytes per second (MBps).
1,024 Kb/sec = 128 KB/sec = 1 Mb/sec = 0.125 MB/sec
