That’s right 4G is live! Virgin Media has finally jump on the same bandwagon as all the other mobile companies! It’s a large step in the mobile network. It’s not long before 3G becomes obsolete with the introduction of 4G having the capabilities of transferring voice over data.
3G had many capabilities of sending data but couldn’t provide the substantial infrastructure of 4G this doesn’t mean that 2G is in danger. With 2G being the main infrastructure of cellular communication it leaves it in a strong position to still survive.
It’s not to say that 3G will drop like the pound has in recent months but it will be a process which will be reduced at a slow rate with devices automatically connecting to a 4G network without the end user recognising it. Does this mean that we will be increased with our network charges?
Well it’s always been known to the consumers that 4G uses more data than 3G but this is because the type of traffic which is transmitted across the network is of higher capacity. This mean that there is more integrated data compressed into a stream of data on the network. This incurs on larger scales of data/information going across the network, but with the speed of the data to the size of the packet is major in the industry.
But what is the next stage on the infrastructure in the mobile network? There is already rumors of 5G coming out in the next few years, but how much can we branch out the infrastructures of the mobile network where it will soon become a major overhaul of data streams polluting the world with signals of packets being transmitted.
What’s the next installment of the mobile network? We must wait on the next release of information. But be sure that it will be a major statement of showing the end users the advancements which the network capabilities can still be reached.
