Frequently Asked Questions Back to Top
What is 4G LTE?
4G stands for Fourth Generation, which is the latest generation of wireless technology offering faster speeds and improved performance. When wireless services were introduced 30 years ago, the first generation only enabled voice calls. Next came 2G, which was the first to offer data services like text messaging, email and basic web browsing. 3G provided true access to the Internet and all it has to offer, including video content and mobile apps. Wireless networks are all about coverage, quality and speed and our 4G, or Fourth Generation, will provide super-fast connectivity - up to 10 times faster - for content, applications, music and video, social media, the Internet and mission-critical business needs.
What does LTE stand for?
LTE stands for Long Term Evolution and is a wireless technology and C Spire's chosen evolutionary path to deliver the next generation of high-speed mobile broadband services. The advantages of LTE are numerous:
- Faster speeds - LTE technology allows us to deliver mobile broadband speeds up to 10 times faster than available today, giving consumers access to richer content, more apps and cloud services than ever before.
- Faster response time - LTE offers lower latency, or the time it takes to process and move data through our network (downloading a web page or file). Lower latency helps improve services like two-way video calling and mobile gaming.
- More efficient spectrum use - Wireless spectrum is a finite resource and LTE uses spectrum more efficiently than competing technologies. Ultimately, LTE creates more space to carry data traffic and services to deliver a better network experience.
- New devices - LTE opens the door for the introduction of new LTE-compatible smartphones and other connected devices with features, hardware and software that allow users to take advantage of the next generation of high-speed mobile broadband services.

What are your 4G LTE deployment areas?
You can view the full list of areas for our initial 4G LTE deployment on our website at www.cspire.com/4G. Our initial phase will have more 4G coverage than any other wireless provider in our footprint.
We are actively planning future phases of our 4G LTE network and we will share details about those areas closer to the time of deployment.
