    As stated above, Will any of the carriers develop along with the Smart Phone companies a faster network speed over 4G LTE? If so how far off do you think this technology could be? The main reason in asking this is because of all the medical programs and apps that are being developed for future use and the speed needed to use them.

    LTE is faster than 4G. Some 4G networks are not true 4G. At any rate, I wonder about speed. Everything has already gotten really fast. There are some areas that could be sped up, such as movie downloads and such. But my iPhone 5 is pretty doggone fast on 4G, LTE and wifi. So I ask myself, "Why do I need faster?". Carriers pushing for faster is just marketing.

    I find LTE to be pretty fast

    Don't see no need to push data speeds now but maybe in the future

    Yes Agreed LTE is but as I had restated in my original; post i ask thins because iPhone and Apple as a company has really gotten behind the Medical field and so have Medical companies and Developers to make the future friendly for diagnosing and treating illness or just check ups and more complicated illnesses right over our Smartphones as Dr. Phil has come out with an incredible app along with the the Show the Doctors, Now this may be the bottom of examples but it WILL be the wave of the future in Medicine which requires higher speeds above and over LTE. I think it is worth talking because the AMA this month is working hard towards these goals.

    As for use with medical tech, the faster the info can be transferred the better patient care. LTE is fast, but I can see them wanting to improve. If not to just to keep up with medical advancements. How far they can go, as long as tech keeps advancing, I think network speeds will also.

    I think they should work on network latency and responsiveness before working on faster speeds.
