UMTS also has network authentication, integrity protection and 128 bit keys, which is also a big improvement on GSM. There is also a stronger UMTS encryption algorithm that is based on the SNOW 3G cipher, but many devices don't support this.
Interesting in LTE, the two ciphers in the stardard initially are SNOW 3G and AES.
