PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless A recent Retrevo Gadgetology survey suggests that users are unclear on what exactly 4G means, don't know whether their current mobile service is 4G or not, and even if they do know, are unsure of the benefit. It also seems that mobile device owners' loyalty to their chosen platform is more important to them than higher network speeds.

LTE Reduced Latency

I believe that part of the LTE standard that is supposed to make it superior to 3G technologies is significantly reduced latency (3G = 50ms or more and LTE = 30ms or less down to 5ms for small packets), in addition to the speed benefits. Other benefits include an IP-based layout and architecture that should make it cheaper to build out and operate over the long run.
