1 Gbps TD-LTE Wireless Speeds


Recommended Posts

And the test was done in just 60MHz of bandwidth? I wonder what 100MHz of bandwidth would have done? I don't think we will see this at the beginning with Clearwire, but maybe down the road it's sure possible.

I know. That was just 60mhz. I hope clearwire works with NSN. This along with their "Six Pipe" radio head would really push Clearwire in the forefront of LTE speeds and capacity in cities. I am more shocked at the fact that they were getting 300+Mbps per 20mhz carrier.

 

 

Does anyone know if Clear plans on continuing their retail service once LTE gets turned on? I so totally want those type of speeds with unlimited in my home.

Too bad they are already in a contract with Ericsson.

The major supplier of Clearwire, DragonWave, announced today an agreement with Nokia Siemens Networks' microwave transport business. That might be good news since DragonWave's largest customer is Clearwire.

Verizon and AT&T users can use their capped 2 GB plans for the month in less than 3 seconds!

 

:lol: You beat me to it. I was just about to type the same thing until I refreshed first and saw your post.

 

What's the point of these insanely high speeds with such low caps on all the data plans these companies have?

The qualifying prepositional phrase "with such low caps on all the data plans these companies have" is unnecessary. The above question alone is sufficient.

I think we should take it one step further and all just talk like Yoda.

That's obvious.... I need to stream several HD movies at once. It's the only way I have time to watch them all since I spend so much time reading the forums on S4GRU.

"Unnecessary, the qualifying phrase is. Sufficient alone, the question is."

 

How is that?

Judge me by my syntax, do you?

To gouge their customers and make tons of money on data overage fees. ;-)

We need these speeds so that Google Instant will show our search results before we even know what we wanted to search for. No longer will it be information when you want it. It will now be information before you need it.

I think those speeds are for stationary terminals, not mobile. Not many phones can accommodate 8x8 MIMO. But it does brings to mind that Clearwire can go after home internet connections or even bundle home and mobile access. Now, can you imagine how much power the radio amplifiers will draw for a 100MHz channel? Yikes!

Probably too much power. I only see standard sized Clear modems using that sort of power and connection. USB devices are just too small and the USB port just can't push enough power to it to use that kind of power. But we just won't know until Clearwire starts the upgrade next year.

I'm guessing some may have already seen these videos of trials in Phoenix, AZ. early 2011.

Straight from John Saw (via Kevin Fitchard at GigaOm), the Clearwire plan is to deploy a TD-LTE 20 MHz carrier, later to follow up with another TD-LTE 20 MHz carrier for 40 MHz carrier aggregation. Plans do not extend to 60 MHz, 80 MHz, nor 100 MHz bandwidth. So, can we now put to bed the ridiculous carrier aggregation and peak speed speculation?

As a follow up thought to John Saw's statements referenced above, Clearwire might consider dropping many of its EBS 2600 MHz leases as it shutters WiMAX over the next few years. That would cut costs, yet Clearwire would still retain up to 55.5 MHz of contiguous BRS 2600 MHz spectrum (BRS2, E, F, H blocks), which would jive nicely with Clearwire's TD-LTE 40 MHz bandwidth plans.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
