First data call at maximum downlink rate of 100 Mbps for a Class 3 USB wireless modem.
Nokia Siemens Networks and LG Electronics have achieved an LTE downlink data transfer rate of 100 Mbps, the maximum speed for a Class 3 LTE terminal. In LTE, user equipment is categorized into classes based on its potential uplink and downlink data rates. Class 3 terminals are expected to be the first widely used commercial LTE terminals when they are launched later in 2010. This data call, operating a Class 3 terminal at its 100Mbps limit, therefore demonstrates significant progress towards commercial LTE.
