LTE has been committed to by 101 operators in 41 countries, with 22 networks in service by the end of this year and up to 50 expected by the end of 2012. This map shows coverage and third-party audited performance figures for the LTE network around Stockholm. Among other interesting TeliaSonera statistics: 90 per cent of LTE users came from 3G services; 65 per cent use LTE as a complement to fixed broadband rather than a replacement for it; and 54 per cent would never go back to 3G. LTE access had also changed usage patterns: 26 per cent said they were working with more mobility, 23 per cent said they were downloading larger files than on 3G, 19 per cent were watching web TV and movies, and 16 per cent were surfing the web more since they got LTE.
