What is 4G Mobile Broadband for Business?
What is the difference between 3G and 4G? This blog will try to answer some of the common questions about 4G and remove some of the mystery that still remains about how this kind of mobile broadband works.
What is 4G Mobile Broadband?
4G is a kind of mobile broadband internet connection that utilises existing mobile phone broadband networks to access the internet. 4G simply means “fourth generation,” with the more well-known “3G” mobile broadband as its precursor.
4G comes with enhancements over previous wireless technologies, like high-speed transmission, advanced multimedia access and global roaming. A 4G network can provide broadband access to any mobile device set up for mobile broadband, from mobile smart phones to laptops and tablets with USB wireless modems.
4G is already in use in the USA and is due to be introduced by some mobile broadband providers in the UK later this year or early next year, although widespread coverage (and thus adoption) may take a while longer. 4G will bring with it much faster speeds (on average, compare to 3G) and offer a realistic alternative to fixed connections for business. 4G uses Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology, which has maximum speeds that compare favourably with many fixed line alternatives.
The Limitations of 4G Mobile Broadband for Business
However, as PC Mag points out, until mobile broadband providers have updated their networks to give more extensive 4G coverage. And, as with everything else, the speed and reliability of both 3G and 4G is variable depending upon your mobile broadband supplier. For business owners choosing mobile phones for business use, it may be a while before 4G is a viable alternative to fixed line wireless internet access for home works and travelling businesspeople.
