Approximate frequency maximum data speeds
  • GSM = 9.6Kb/s
  • EDGE = 200Kb/s
  • EV-DO = 3.1Mb/s
  • HSPA 7.2 = 7.2Mb/s
  • HSPA+ = 21Mb/s (this may show as a "4G" connection on an iPhone 4S/5 or iPad 3)
  • DC-HSDPA = 42Mbp/s (this may show as a "4G" connection on an iPhone 5 or iPad 3)
  • LTE (4G) = 73Mbp/s (theoretical max of 100Mbps)
  • LTE (4G) Advanced = 100-500Mbp/s (theoretical max of 1Gbps)
