imageThis is the age of internet and hundreds of firms around the world are working to improve it, in doing so a new record has been set for the world's fastest 4G mobile internet speed.

A Finland based mobile carrier provider, Elisa, in cooperation with the Chinese telecommunication giant Huawei has broken the record for the fastest speeds achieved over a 4G network. The two companies were able to achieve a speed of 1.9 Gigabit per second over the 4G test network.

“This new speed record is a step towards the 5G network and also an excellent indication of all the opportunities the 4G network still has to offer. The speeds that the 4G network offers are continuously increasing and, possibly in the next few years, we will even be able to offer mobile data connections of several gigabits per second to our customers,” said Sami Komulainen, Vice President of mobile network services at Elisa.

As per BBC, this ultra-fast mobile internet service enables a user to download a Blu-ray film in just 44 seconds, well that’s fast internet.

However, the speeds have little relevance in real world applications as, "Deploying a network that can support 1.9Gbps doesn't mean customers will get 1.9Gbps mobile broadband," quoted Nick Wood, an assistant editor at Total Telecom.

And why is that “because that network capacity has to be shared among customers. In reality, customers are likely to experience a modest improvement in overall speed and reliability, which is great, but doesn't make for exciting headlines the same way that 1.9 Gbps does," he added.
