[Alan Spicers Note - first]
LTE or Long Term Evolution – described here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3GPP_Long_Term_Evolution is the next generation of how almost all cellular and cellular broadband Internet will be done. This will make the U.S. cellular carriers technologies “the same” rather than “different” as they are currently. For example Sprint and Verizon are CDMA (CDMA EVDO) while AT&T and T-Mobile are GSM (UMTS/ HSPA). In the future both CDMA/EVDO and GSM/UMTS/HSPA will both evolve and get upgraded to LTE – the name given to a project within the Third Generation Partnership Project to improve the UMTS mobile phone standard to cope with future technology evolutions. Goals include improving spectral efficiency, lowering costs, improving services, making use of new spectrum and refarmed spectrum opportunities, and better integration with other open standards. If you want, see more at the Wikipedia link above.
