Of late, there has been a whole lot of buzz about 4G. Have you been wondering what this is all really about? Well, this article is dedicated to you!
Let’s get straight to it and talk about what 4G means in the first place. 4G is the 4th Generation of mobile networks. The difference between 4G and 3G is that 4G is nearly 5 times faster. 4G is nothing new, but people have begun catching up only recently in India. People are now looking at 4G as the next level of Internet connectivity. This is mainly because of the benefits it offers in terms of speed and performance. These days, people want things to be fast, faster, fastest. Once they try 4G, they realise that 3G is rather slow.
4G Benefits – You Should Know
Super High Speed
One of the most well known benefits of 4G is its amazing speed. We perform an unlimited number of functions on our phones, tablets and computers – from browsing and social networking to shopping, banking and playing games. A large number of jobs these days require the use of the Internet. People need to send documents via email, carry out varying amounts of research, communicate with clients across the globe through Skype and much more.
In these situations, an Internet connection that performs at the best speed possible makes everything so much smoother and easier. 3G offers speeds of around 3 Mbps. Whereas 4G goes way beyond that, with speeds of about 14 Mbps. Further, 4G LTE offers speeds up to 42 Mbps! That is 14 times the speed of 3G! Imagine how much you could do within the same span of time. It will entirely transform your Internet experience.
A Bunch of Added Services
There are various added services you can get with 4G and 4G LTE that you would not find in 3G, such as VoLTE, which stands for voice over LTE. In this, the advantages of a 4G Internet connection also apply to your calls. This means that even when you talk to someone on your phone while using 4G, the quality of your calls will also be very high. This is because the network connection takes care of your calls as well. So it it pretty much like benefiting from the all-round performance and capabilities of your Internet connection – which get transferred to your calls as well! Would you have imagined that with 3G?
The Cost Factor
Because 4G was priced significantly higher than 3G when it just began, people were hesitant to try it out. But these days, network providers are reducing the cost as much as possible so as to get access to a wider customer base.
To conclude this article, I am going to say that as far as the speed and added services are concerned, there is no question that 4G can change the way you communicate with the world and use the Internet. The quality of your experience will improve a great deal. That is why I recommend this to everyone else. Just make the switch and see the difference!
