Rogers is running a test LTE system in Ottawa and should have it in service, in several major cities, later this year.i didnt even know LTE was out anywhere ..
For smartphones like the iphone4 I could see the higher speeds benefitting the face-to-face video call feature (whatever its called).Can someone give me a good reason for wanting more than 7Mps in the first place?
It's not as if you can use Facetime on the 3G/4G network. It only works over WiFi.For smartphones like the iphone4 I could see the higher speeds benefitting the face-to-face video call feature (whatever its called).
It would be able to handle it. So would 3G. I've used Facetime on a WiFi connection that only had a 3 Mbps throughput and it was fine - no choppiness at all. I think that the main reason 3G access is turned off in Facetime by Apple is that the carriers (mainly U.S.) don't want it to overload their networks.^ I know that but I figured the reason it was only on wifi presently was because '3G' wasn't fast enough to support it.
How do we know true '4G' won't be able to handle it?
