Mobile networks, especially LTE networks, are used more and more for high-bandwidth services like multimedia or video streams. The quality of the data connection plays a major role in the perceived quality of a service. Videos may be presented in a low quality or experience a lot of stalling events, when the connection is too slow to buffer the next frames for playback. So far, no publicly available data set exists that has a larger number of LTE network traces and can be used for deeper analysis. In this data set, we provide 546 traces of 5 minutes each with a sample rate of 100 ms. Thereof 377 traces are pure LTE data. We furthermore provide an Android app to gather further traces as well as R scripts to clean, sort, and analyze the data.
