Samsung shows first LTE 4G USB modem

As part of a just-announced partnership between Ericsson and Samsung, the latter has released the first USB modem fully compatible with the new Long Term Evolution (LTE) 4G standard. The Samsung GT-B3710 modem will be sold commercially through provider TeliaSonera in 2010 in Norway and Sweden. It promises to bring peak speeds of 150Mbps downstream as well as 50Mbps uploads.

This compares favorably to the 42Mbps and 12Mbps download and upload rates offered even by upcoming HSPA+ 3G networks. The two firms expect the bandwidth enough to drive mobile TV, multiplayer gaming and bandwidth-intensive work in the field. Pricing and exact release dates for the GT-B3710 are unknown.
