Long-Term Evolution, or LTE, is a visible presence at the LG Electronics booth at CES.

The big consumer electronics company is talking up the mobile communications technology, demonstrating “one of the world's first LTE download speed of 100 Mbps.”

“By connecting to the LG's LTE USB Modem, LG presented one of the world's first real-time demonstrations of full HD video files, video conferences and web-surfing at speeds up to 100 Mbps for downloads and 50 Mbps for uploads,” the firm stated.

“To put this technology in perspective, imagine being able to download an entire movie to your mobile phone in only one minute. Demonstrating data downloads at such an incredible speed marked yet another technological milestone for LG.”

The company is also showing a "handover" technology that enables network conversion between LTE and CDMA networks.

LG said it’s working with Verizon Wireless to show capabilities and applications made possible by LTE networks.
