The 4 G LTE rates Vodafone
With the Vodafone LTE peak speeds will be achieved of up to 150 Mbps download and 50 Mbps of upload Although one of the main advantages to more noticed users will be the improvement in latency that will make the response when navigating in mobility is almost immediate.

Something similar occurred in 2004 with the 3G I initially had a cost of 6 euros never charged.
