Mobile broadband is becoming a reality, as the Internet generation grows accustomed to having broadband access wherever they go, Out of 1.8 billion people who will have broadband by 2012, some two-thirds will be mobile broadband consumers - and the majority of these will be served by HSPA (High Speed Packet Access) and LTE (Long Term Evolution) networks. One of the requirements on LTE is to provide downlink peak rates of at least 100Mbit/s. The technology allows for speeds over 200Mbit/s and Ericsson has already demonstrated LTE peak rates of about 150Mbit/s.
