what does LTE mean

  • Best Answer:

    LTE stands for Long-Term Evolution and is a broad, still evolving standard under which 4G-type technologies are grouped. It operates on a different segment of the wireless spectrum and it is incompatible with 2G/3G technology. It has essentially become more of a marketing term instead of a definitive standard.

  • All it really means is if your data carrier supports it and you have that type of signal where you are, download speeds will be as fast as home broadband speeds.

  • LTE stands for Long-Term Evolution. For example I have a iPhone 4 that only says 3G, because 4's aren't supported of 4G. The iPhone 5 is supportive of LTE.
