Comparison of Mobile Internet Access methods
Standard Family Primary Use Radio Tech Downlink (Mbit/s) Uplink (Mbit/s) Notes
LTE UMTS/4GSM General 4G OFDMA/MIMO/SC-FDMA 360 80 LTE-Advanced update expected to offer peak rates of at least 1 Gbit/s fixed speeds and 100 Mbit/s to mobile users.
WiMAX 802.16e Mobile Internet MIMO-SOFDMA 144 35 WiMAX update IEEE 802.16m expected offer up to 1 Gbit/s fixed speeds.
Wi-Fi 802.11
(11n)
Mobile Internet OFDM/MIMO 288.9
(Supports 600Mbps @ 40MHz channel width)

Antenna, RF front end enhancements and minor protocol timer tweaks have helped deploy long range P2P networks compromising on radial coverage, throughput and/or spectra efficiency (310km & 382km).
