The author criticizes vendors of wireless equipment for making the public believe that long-term evolution (LTE) technology is available for broadband spectrum use in public safety communications. An example is the announcement of Nokia Siemens Network on a successful call made at 100 megabits per second using an LTE network that is set up for tests in Singapore. The consumers do not know that when the LTE becomes available, the data speed will be much lower.
