This paper deals with studying the effects of performance LTE network throughput for data traffic. Utilisation rate of networks has a significant impact on the quality parameters of triple play services. LTE network was simulated by the software module additionally implemented in a development environment MATLAB. Throughput model has been obtained using this simulation that was used to test the QoS parameters for voice/video. Voice and video data streams using different codecs are transmitted for the obtained throughput. The measured qualitatively QoS parameters determine the resulting quality services from the perspective of end user perception.
