Samsung testing LTE in India with Galaxy S4 mini LTE

Samsung testing LTE in India with Galaxy S4 mini LTE - read the full textIndia recently got a taste of 4G LTE but so far it is limited to a handful of cities. On top of the that, the TD-LTE band that is in use in India is only supported on the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c so even if you do have a device with LTE support and live in an area with LTE, you can't use it on...

I got the LG G2 for the 4G experience. It was awesome the first few days, gave me 30 mbps average (Bangalore)
However, its not the same right now. The speed has come down considerably. Also, weird things like; Messengers work, but Internet Browsing dont!. Tweeting works but Facebook, youtube and playstore dont load at all!!! these issues are irritating and i now miss my poor Note 3 that I exchanged for this phone for 4G!! :(

There are hundreds of TD-LTE models in the Chinese markets (China, Hong Kong) as well as Australia, including ALL the star models such as iPhone 5s/5c, Galaxy S4/S4 Mini/S5/S5 Mini/Note3, LG G2/G3, HTC One M8.
Many of them are even under $300 in China, like Lenovo/ZTE/Coolpad. It's certainly not the technology holding you back.

They could have gone for 1800 mhz in the first place but they didn't have the so called unified licence that time that allows network operators to launch 2g and 4g on the same band. 1800 mhz was only used for 2g that time. I think that's the reason . Also for some weird reason Indian politicians like to follow China when it comes to well anything. Since China had td-lte ,India also went for it and look where we are now. still stuck with 3g

Its all because of old age and corrupt politicians... India is lagging behind, due to that other countries take benefit of this situation. Its really sad...

Don't worry guys.There will also be 4G FDD-LTE Bands on 1800MHZ,which Vodafone,videocon has purchased.Reliance has pan-India licence of both TD and FDD based LTE.Therefore,consumers will be enjoying both the bands.Infact,India will be one of the few countries to have 4G on both the technologies.

Its was a bad decision by corrupt congress government in choosing some odd 4G bands hardly used anywhere in world like the current 2300mhz band for 4G. Othewise indian market would have many cheap 4G handsets from micromax,xolo,and even nokia.

Just now huh? Why Samsung? You think our internet capabilities here are slow? Just because our country is very poor, doesn't mean our internet is that slow. I mean I think we're richer than North Korea.
