title LTE

Introduction

LTE is a fourth generation cellular standard which supports high data transfer rates. Unlike its predecessors UMTS and GSM a lot of frequencies were already in use in each country at its launch. Thus 44 frequencies are in use for LTE. These can not be supported completely by any mobile phone. Thus it is important while using a mobile phone in an LTE network to make sure it supports the frequencies used in the country and cellular network.

The >Skyynet mobile phones database shows the supported frequencies and speed (LTE Category) for all LTE phones.
The >Skyynet Handy Finder can be used to search for LTE phones.
