In this paper, the compact antenna with three folded patches for use in a number of bands of LTE, WCDMA, US-PCS, and WLAN at the same time is proposed. As the changes in widths of the 3 patches to widen the insufficient bandwidth are given, it is optimized for $S_{11}$<-6dB(VSWR<3). The CPW with a number of advantages is used in the proposed antenna. The proposed antenna is designed and fabricated with FR4 substrate to the size of $44.9{\times}35{\times}1mm^3$. Fabricated antenna has within $S_{11}$<-6dB under operating bands. And measured characteristics of radiation patterns and gains are shown under operating bands.
