I know, we are all apt to use the "buzz words".. Got a present of my iPad and I am just getting to know it
Your not the only one who wondered exactly what "LTE" represented. I thought it meant something else. Either way it don't matter . Its most likely over priced.im also curious as to just how long term it will really be until the next acronym pops.
Acronyms are everywhere, when I start with "omg" just shoot me!!Originally Posted by Slimseven
That is why I H A T E abbreviations of any sort. Hard to figure out. Just spell the words out and do not be lazy.

Exactly, I see it everyday, people have lost the art of writing, they cannot spell and most of the time I do not have clue with all the acronyms.. Have fun trying to figure it out though.
LTE is a very common abbreviation in many circles for the past year. The big problem is that 4G, as advertised by the carriers, does not really meet the criteria set by the telecommunications standards. And there are several versions of 4G, including HSPA+ and LTE on the market. Right now, all the carriers are moving to LTE as the solution, but even so, there are numerous problems which make adding 4G LTE hard for Apple. 3G is out over a limited number of frequencies, but 4G LTE is spread over numerous frequencies. Each carrier is using different frequencies, including overseas. That means a chip handling 4G must include all those frequencies, adding to the cost and complexity. There is also the issue that there are few areas that have 4G LTE at this time. That means if the 4G is not disabled, it will continue to search for towers that are not there, wasting precious power at a high rate.
I'm going use the ole line: everyone else is doing it!!! Apple has to as well. I live on a college campus. I'll have the subscription off until, I'm on the road. Or dog blasted Internet goes down as it always does during finals!!!!!!Originally Posted by Seadog

If you didn't know what LTE was, you wouldn't have been helped by anyone spelling it out. No one spells it out in normal use. And it's been in wide circulation for a good while.
iPad owners come from varying levels of tech knowledge and no one is obligated to address all posts as if we're all tech-ignorant. People often are helpful enough to explain if you ask (especially if you're polite). Or, when you don't understand an abbreviation, a google search takes seconds.
