LG shows off the world’s first 4G (LTE) modem
While we’re still waiting for a 4G / LTE network to be commercially launched anywhere in the world, LG has recently showcased the first-ever LTE USB modem.
Presented in Singapore, during CommunicAsia 2009, the new LG modem is capable of providing data transfers of up to 100 Mbps over a mobile network – thus being much faster than any 3G modem currently available.
LG didn’t say when its LTE USB modem will be commercially available, but this clearly depends on when LTE networks are launched.
LTE should be widely deployed around the world in the coming years.
For example, Verizon should start offering LTE services in some US markets as soon as 2010.
