What is the speed of LTE networks?

How much speed does Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks offer? How does it compare against the speed or data rates offered by other mobile broadband technologies such as 2G, 2.5G, 3G. What is the data rate promised by 4G networks? The following chart should put the data rates of different mobile broadband technologies in perspective (Note: The numbers are theoretical maximums provided by the specifications)

Let us take for example, you want to download a 1 MB movie file using your mobile broadband Internet. Using 2G technology, it takes you 10 minutes, to download a single 1 MB movie file. Using 2.5G technology, you can download nearly 30 such movie files in 10 minutes. Using 3G technology, you can download, 1000 such movie files in 10 minutes. LTE technology would allow you to download  8000 movie files in 10 minutes.
