LTE Coverage by Country. LTE (Long Term Evolution) is the name given to high-speed wireless data transmission based on network technologies. Unlike connections like TE 2G or 3G, it is completely IP based.
In the above map, you can see the countries where LTE technology is or not. While LTE technology is widely used in the Americas and Europe, it is used in only 3 countries in Africa. When we look at Asia, we can see many countries that do not have LTE technology.
The world’s first LTE network was launched by Ericsson at the end of 2009 and beginning of 2010 in Norway and Sweden.
Investigation of Coverage Areas by Countries
South America and North America, particularly in the United States and Canada, LTE is being used at a high rate. The USA has a coverage rate of 86.50%, the fourth highest in the world. Canada has a coverage rate of 81.10%. Canada is followed by Mexico (69.04%), Peru (4) and Panama (5), respectively. Ecuador (41.69%) has the lowest coverage.
The first commercial LTE (4G) communications network in the United States was founded by Ericsson and operated in 2010.
Europe is again showing itself as the continent with the highest level of development. As seen on the map, LTE is being used in Europe very high. Bosnia, Montenegro, Albania, Macedonia, Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus, Estonia are countries that do not use LTE. Ireland has the lowest coverage and Norway has the highest coverage. Norway is also the first country in the world to switch to LTE technology. In addition to Norway, Lithuania and Netherlands have high coverage.
There are many countries in Asia that do not use LTE. It is surprising that China is listed, but TDD is being used by China, because of the broadband range, more users per MHz are falling and the population is crowded, so they continue in this system. Because of these differences, it is beneficial to check the LTE frequencies while taking a phone call from China.
It is not surprising that the technology countries have the widest coverage of Japan and South Korea. At the same time, these two countries are the two countries with the highest coverage in the world. 1. North Korea is the 2nd japan.
What are the LTE Speeds in the Countris Using This Technology?
As speed, Canada, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, and a few European countries are bouncing, and let’s examine closely the continents.
Norway and Hungary are Europe’s most attractive countries with internet speeds. Poland and Russia are emerging as two countries that have not benefited sufficiently from LTE technology. You can see the speed of European countries in the table.
South Korea, which has semi-annual LTE technology, also appears to be in the 1st place, so is it in the 1st place in the world?
Singapore seems to have taken the 1st place from South Korea this time. We congratulate them, it must be pleasant to go around the internet at this rate.
