Surfing slower, despite LTE

Although the smart tariffs now allow the LTE access, users surf slower on the Internet in principle. Because before the conversion Lidl Connect made possible over the UMTS net of Vodafone maximum speeds of 32 Mbit / s in the downstream. Now it is only 21.6 Mbit / s. Thus, the Vodafone discounter offers the same maximum speed that also Aldi talc provides in the network of O2.

Nevertheless, LTE access has clear advantages over UMTS. On the one hand, the network operators are slowly ringing the end of UMTS / 3G. The nets are already being dismantled piece by piece. On the other hand, LTE offers significantly shorter latency times (response times), which can be decisive in gaming, for example.
