But only Deutsche Telekom has a certain LTE frequency (1800s band), some the iPhone 5 in the new fast network works. So far sparks this frequency only in 60 cities – and not the country.
A first FOCUS live test in the LTE network Telekom showed quite acceptable to good results in terms of bandwidth in cities. The drive with an LTE-capable smartphone (HTC) from Hanover to Berlin brought different results. On flat land, the tester automatically chose in conventional, but slower networks (GSM, UMTS, edge). The spike in the test in the LTE network was, however, amounting to Wolfsburg while driving high 34 megabits per second – more than some domestic DSL – landline reached. In the other test cities, there was a good reception.
In this respect, the current way out of the congested networks for frequent users could be an LTE phone. However, it is significantly more expensive than previous devices, and in tariffs it – is necessary if it wants to take advantage of the full bandwidth – pay extra up to 95 euros a month. So much, at least the tariff is “Vodafone red premium”, with the man up to 50 megabits per second is fast and up to 10 gigabytes receives a data flat rate (including language-flat rate to all networks). At Einsteigertarifen of all LTE provider (Telekom, Vodafone, O2) tempo and volume of data be throttled, however, strongly.
