List of LTE networks

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of commercial Long-Term Evolution (LTE) networks around the world, grouped by their frequency bands.
Some operators utilizing multiple bands, therefore repeated in respective sections.

General information[edit]

  • For technical details on LTE and a list of its designated operating frequencies, bands, and their common names, see LTE Frequency bands.
  • Bands 33 to 44 are assigned to TDD-LTE.
  • Networks on the global LTE-bands 1, 3, 7, 28 (FDD-LTE) or 38, 40 (TDD-LTE) are suitable for future global roaming in ITU Regions 1, 2 and 3.
  • Networks on LTE-band 8 (FDD-LTE) may allow global roaming in the future (ITU Regions 1, 2 and 3) (Long-term perspective).
  • Networks on LTE-band 20 (FDD-LTE) are suitable for roaming in ITU Region 1 (EMEA) only.
  • Networks on LTE-bands 2 and 4 (FDD-LTE) are suitable for roaming in ITU Region 2 (Americas) only.

North America (USA, US Territories & Canada) (FCC band plan)[edit]

Apart from their main spectrum holdings across large regions in the country (listed below) the major US carriers (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile & Verizon) also hold various Cellular Market Area (CMA) and/or Economic Area (EA) licenses for the AWS 1700 band, as well as Major Trading Area (MTA) and/or Basic Trading Area (BTA) licenses for the PCS 1900 band. In several small regional areas the named operators combine these with their major spectrum holdings to increase the bandwidth for their LTE deployments. Due to the large amount of these "single" licenses they are not listed here.
