3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) is a standard for wireless communication of high-speed data. It is based upon GSM/EDGE and UMTS/HSPA network technologies. It actually refers to a technology that many telecom companies are now eying to usher in real 4G service with downlink of 100Mbps! With the spring up of LTE network, LTE 3G modems are emerging, Samsung GT-B3740 LTE Modem is one of the first LTE USB dongle modems available in the market. |
First of all, this USB modem is not for everyone. If you live in an area which doesn't have LTE coverage, then don't get these LTE modems. You won't be able to use this device without LTE connectivity because, like other LTE devices, it is not backward compatible with older technologies. That being said, let us now move on to the merits of this wonderful device. Many of the telecom companies today are still offering 3G connectivity either with a Global Service for Mobile Communication (GSM) or a Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) network. Some companies, like Verizon in the United States, have started rolling out LTE services. And many experts believe that it is just a matter of time before other companies followed suit.
If you are one of the lucky ones who live in a place where LTE has been rolled out already, then you can already avail of the Samsung GT-B3740. This USB modem has the right to claim that it is the fastest USB stick modem available, theoretically at least. Under the LTE technology, download speeds can reach up to a breathtaking 100Mbps and upload speeds can go as fast as 50Mbps. So if you live in a place where LTE is already being offered, it would be quite unfortunate if you won't be able to experience the difference that LTE brings. All you have to do to start enjoying the benefits of LTE is to get a portable device such the Samsung GT-B3740.
Also known as Surfstick, Samsung GT-B3740 works under the 4G LTE 800MHz and 2.6MHz network band. This device works with most operating systems and features an auto install and auto-run system. Just plug it in your computer's USB port and you'll be experiencing the speed of LTE in minutes. The Surfstick is a very portable device. Because it weighs only 55g and measures only 64 mm x 50 mm x 11 mm, you can easily carry this around in your pocket or bag. The Samsung GT-B3740 also comes unlocked and ready to use with global services. Because this LTE USB modem offers very fast Internet connection, you can use it to access very demanding online activities such video streaming, video conferencing and to query ERP/CRM applications.
The only downside to getting the Samsung GT-B3740 lies in the fact that it is an LTE device. Because LTE is not yet widely used, this USB stick modem is not the most ideal portable modem for traveling. If you are the type of person who travels a lot, you may have to get a USB modem that works on a dual carrier HSPA+ network on top of the Samsung GT-B3740. Many countries are now using or planning to use soon the LTE standard as high speed 4G network. take advantage of it with the new 4G LTE modem now!
