LTE Frequency Bands

March 16, 2020

What are the LTE frequency bands for LTE TDD (Time Division Duplex) and LTE FDD (Frequency Division Duplex)?

 

The frequency bands allocated for LTE are different in the different countries around the world.

There are two types of LTE Frequency Bands FDD and TDD.

FDD stands for Frequency Division Duplex, each FDD-LTE bands consist of a pair of frequencies, one for the uplink and another for the downlink.

TDD (Time Division Duplex) LTE Bands require only a single band which is used for both the uplink and downlink.
