Motorola kickstarts internal 4G tests

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Motorola has begun testing 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) broadband in the UK.

The firm said the trial kicked off at a testing lab in Swindon with a “live, over-the-air, standards-compliant LTE call”, during which high-speed data services were streamed using a prototype LTE device operating in the 2.6GHz spectrum.

Motorola aims to release its first commercially available LTE products later this year. It said some will work in the 700MHz spectrum and some in the 2.6GHz band.

In the meantime, it’ll continue testing 4G broadband by working with operators across the globe, including carriers in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.

It’s worth noting that Motorola’s not the first company to get going on 4G-like connections and technology. LG’s already begun testing a mobile phone chip said to be capable of 100Mb/s download speeds and 50Mb/s upload speeds.

HTC has also already unwrapped a 4G device – which integrates WiMax, Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity, but not LTE – in Russia. ®
