4G LTE – What does LTE stand for?
Since launching 4G LTE products in 2019 due to 2G GSM network reliability issues, there is still confusion over what LTE actually stands for. ‘Lite’?, ‘Lifetime Telguard Excellence’?, ‘Little Telguard Elves’? Sadly no, it stands for ‘Long Term Evolution’ which is a term used for the particular type of 4G that delivers the fastest mobile Internet experience.
Just like GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) was a 2G acronym and UMTS (The Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) was a 3G one, LTE simply means 4G – which is very important because the 3G network is likely to be turned off in 2025 and 2G GSM network becomes less and less reliable. So next time you are purchasing a telephone-based intercom, make sure it’s a 4G LTE product for a truly futureproof system unlike all the 3G and 2G products on the market currently .
