The availability of LTE in cities increases more and more, spreading high-speed Internet without cable. Pete Cashmore gathered all the information. The media is increasingly “Turbo Funk”, “Turbo engine for the laptops” or simply “mobile VDSL” speech, if a matching description for the new mobile communications standard LTE must follow here. In fact, LTE, which stands for long term evolution is a wireless data transmission technology of superlatives, which is installed at an equally fast pace by telecommunications companies Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone and o2 in more and more cities and regions. To the former analog TV Fequenz and an LTE router is used in rural areas, because these frequencies have a very high range of 10 to 15 kilometers and limit the dismantling costs of the operators. In Dusseldorf, Cologne and Munich, where the first urban LTE networks in operation have been taken already in the summer of 2011, is the Turbo using LTE drive and laptop switched on. While the network expansion in over 100 cities at the time promoted will LTE customers already broadcast video and other data-intensive applications that were possible only with wired VDSL technology, on the road use can.

Stationary power is on land the LTE connectivity in rural areas stationary via a LTE router, about the available since November AVM LTE-Fritz!Box 6840. It affects the transmission speed due to the distance of the LTE router to the masts. Should be to slow transfer rates, customers have only the opportunities to find a better location for the LTE router or install an additional LTE antenna. Such an antenna is simply constructed and can be created even with the help of a construction manual in Eigenbau. Since several users to share a frequency, hardly the technically possible be achieved in rural areas 50 to 100 MBit/s. Rather the LTE network has ensured there, that with relatively low construction costs, rural regions could be connected to the broadband network.
