If last week we saw as in Norway begin to assemble the first 4G network based on LTE while preferring to rely on WiMax in some areas of the United States or Asia, seems that in Spain we will have to continue complying with improvements to the current 3 G as it presented Vodafone reaching up to 16 Mbps actual download.
The main reason for the delay on the part of the Ministry of industry is that still not defined the standard of 4G which is disputed between LTE o WiMax Although it has also weighed the current economic situation. In principle, the the new 4G licensing I thought to get underway in March about but at the end it was decided to paralyze a few months or even until the end of the current parliamentary term according to some sources.
Other reasons for the delay is the current lack of adapted equipment a fourth generation but in this sense, the operators know that not can take much more time to procedures because it is a long process until it becomes a reality.
The last found drawback is the uncertainty about the granting of new frequencies and the reallocation of existing between the four network operators with own network (Movistar, Vodafone, Orange and Yoigo). The European Union wants that all operators can count on the same spectrum and can that if Telstra gets 900 Mhz frequency, desist from enter the contest for 4 G by what its allocation in this case would be different and would therefore be necessary to rinse before the granting of new licenses.
Basically, with the 4G will achieve speeds of 100Mbps mobile download, 50Mbps of rise and much lower latency than with the current 3 G. hope that when the fourth generation to become a reality, their data rates are less limited than the current ones and can be effectively replaced by the advantages of mobility fixed networks.
