Now yes, LTE technology is starting to take off in Spain

At this point in the game, we all know that the number of people « always online » in many parts of the world, including Spain, is not going to stop growing over time. Now, logically, this can only happen if the technologies that allow it are expanded, which in Spain seems to be starting to happen and I come here with recent news that serves to support the statement.

For some time now, Telefónica and Vodafone have been experimenting with LTE technology, the fourth generation (4G) of mobile telephony which allows high-speed Internet connection. Well, Telefónica has just announced that after laboratory tests, they will start with field tests, more precisely in Mérida, a legendary Spanish city where they will install the first LTE network in the country.

At the moment it is a pilot project to continue investigating, but despite this, those from Telefónica have stated that speeds of up to 100 Mbps download and 50 Mbps upload will be achieved, which is really well (I don't have this connection at home, not even far away).

I'm drooling just at the thought of one day having access to this fourth generation of mobile telephony, hopefully closer than ever. On the other hand, you don't have to be very smart to see that the generalization of this type of technology will mean big changes, many of which are not even foreseen today.
