In the paper, MIMO antenna for LTE 13 band, LTE 7 band wireless communication service is proposed. The proposed antenna is designed where on the top of FR-4(${\epsilon}_r=4.4$, thickness=-.8mm). In proposed structure, two Planar Inverted F Antennas (PIFAs) using meander and folded structure are symmetrically designed for the miniaturization. The isolation between two antennas was also improved by using two slits on the ground plane. The isolation values of the fabricated antenna exhibits -18 dB, -13dB at LTE 13 and LTE 7 band, respectively. The average gain and efficiency are - 4.1 dBi, 41% on LTE 13 band, -1 dBi, 81% on LTE 7 band, respectively. Thus the proposed antenna can be applied to the LTE system.
