© 2016 IEEE. LTE/LTE-A is high speed wireless communication technology which got evolved from 2G/3G. LTE provides very high throughput in uplink and downlink and hence it is attracting more and more subscribers every day. This paper analyzes the performance of real time LTE network of two different LTE service providers through drive test. Test cases were performed under dynamic environment where the test user is dynamic or the environment around the test user is dynamic (travelling in train or car). The performance comparison of different Key Performance Indicators (KPI) such as Reference Signal Received Power (RSRP), Reference Signal Received Quality (RSRQ), Reference Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) and throughput (uplink - UL and downlink - DL) are made between the two LTE service providers. The performance tests were performed using Nemo tool in a real-time LTE network. Average values were obtained for different KPIs to study the performance of the LTE network.
