Think 4G LTE's 200 Mbps Is Fast? This Telco Achieved 1.9 Gigabit-per-second!

Update: Don’t tell me you had a Nigerian Telco in mind after reading the caption??
4G LTE has been rolling out for some years now, but the typical speed you get is dependent on your country and carrier. For example, nTel boasts of 106.5Mbps. But what if I told you that a carrier was able to achieve 1.9 gigabit-per-second (Gbps)

Crazy, right?
A Finland-based mobile carrier provider, Elisa, in partnership with Huawei broke the record for the fastest speed achieved over a 4G network. The two companies were able to reach a speed of 1.9 Gigabit per second over the 4G test network.

Imagine for one minute what you can do with this speed. BBC claims you can download a Blu-ray movie in 44 seconds!
Now, back to reality!
You must note that this was carried out in a test mode, and the results won’t be replicated in real-world performance. According to an assistant editor at Total Telecom:

“Deploying a network that can support 1.9Gbps doesn’t mean customers will get 1.9Gbps mobile broadband

And why is that:

“Because that network capacity has to be shared among customers. In reality, customers are likely to experience a modest improvement in overall speed and reliability, which is great, but doesn’t make for exciting headlines the same way that 1.9 Gbps does,” he added.

For now, we can only imagine. ?
