We all remember the hype when 3G was launched and we could have downloaded applications, videos and other media at an incredible speed. Well, we all expect the 4G Tour, the true 4G.
T-Mobile, Verizon and other high-end companies have announced their 4G models. But the fact is that they are far from 4g, they are 4G only in the name. As you may have guessed, 4G’s name is simply there because of marketing, if we want to label them, our best choice would be to label them of 3.7 g or 3.8 g because they are Better, but not up to the 4G expected standards.
It can be said that 4G is not yet available for our market, perhaps in Japan, but not in the United States. So what would be the ideal 4G according to IMT advanced standards? This would be a cell system with speed speed and data transfer rates available up to 1 Gbps for wireless local mobile devices and 100 mobile Mbits.
Verizon, LTE and AT & T have the theoretical speed rate compliant with these numbers, download 100 Mbps and a download rate of 50 Mbps, but only in theory, practice and reality is still far from it. We have two two-digit speeds available, but according to IMT 4G standards should focus on triple speeds figures as standard rates, not peak speeds than Verizon and others offer.
So, what does all this mean for the T-Mobile advertisement of 4G as well as other companies that 4G technologies are available and invoicing insane amounts to access this technology? In simple terms, it’s just marketing, they offer a better service and a better speed than others, but they do not offer 4G again, even if they promote it this way. 4G is a few years to come, these speeds will not be easy to find.
