Fig-1: TDD Vs FDD LTE Coverage
FDD mode will provide better coverage of large area due to fixed downlink(DL)/uplink(UL) on different frequencies compare to TDD mode. TDD mode will provide more downlink capacity with flexible DL/UL ratio in the LTE frame structure. LTE TDD hotspots with LTE FDD macrocells will enhance capacity and also will expand LTE coverage. Refer LTE FDD vs LTE TDD modes for more information. Figure-1 depicts TDD vs FDD LTE coverage.
