Gigabit LTE: At the end of February 2019, GSA has identified 100 operators in 59 countries or territories investing in all the three core LTE-Advanced features for Gigabit LTE (defined as Carrier Aggregation, 4×4 MIMO or higher, and 256QAM modulation in the downlink).
51 operators have deployed all three of these technologies and / or launched commercial services based on them.
Gigabit LTE does not always equal Gigabit speed. Some networks capable of delivering downlink speeds of 1 Gbps can do so without using all three key LTE-Advanced features
Some networks using all three features do not achieve 1 Gbps
The fastest networks in the GSA database are:
