The main differences between 3G and 4G mobile phone network
In the age of high technology, almost everyone has a modern smartphone, supports at least 3G networks. But a long time there and 4G network. What is the difference between these two networks, and whether to buy a smartphone with support 4G?
We are talking about wireless Internet networks, which when connected to a device giving him access to the Internet, but there are limitations in volume and speed. And the main differences between 3G and 4G networks lie in these parameters.
3G networks are a standard Internet technology that is quite normal fulfill modern requirements and, therefore, this standard is hardly obsolete is impossible, because in addition to a quite tolerable speed and volume of the standard, all operators still have tariffs on 3G network, and is actively used by many people almost every day. The price of connecting this technology is very low. There are many tariffs that will suit everyone. And currently all new phones support this standard.
4G is considered to be a high-speed Internet networks. Their speed is very fast, but alas, not in all countries available for a given technology, not to mention the fact that not all new phones support 4G connectivity, although it depends on the price of the device.
The speed of the mobile connection is 100 Mbps or 1 Gbps depends on the preferences of the subscriber. This technology is called LTE. It is important to know because in the characteristics of smartphones, write «LTE» and not «4G». Ignorance of the said fact may introduce consumer confusion. Prices for this service will already be more expensive than 3G, but this is due to the high speed and volume of traffic. However, not all countries have this standard. In America this technology is widely used, whereas in Europe the service is available in all cities.
To choose which network to connect, and whether to buy a new device, only to support 4G network, you must first figure out and analyze how often use Internet technology in the device, and to what extent and what speed is required for comfortable use. And after such reflection, is to draw the right conclusion.
At the moment there is no need to buy a new device solely for the sake of high-speed networks, as 3G network is cheaper and supported by almost all devices, and thus can meet the needs of the average user of the Internet.
