These days there are a lot of talks & announcements from all the major operators about 4G.It’s too exciting as Fourth generation, or 4G technology offers mobile internet access at three times the speed of 3G.
- Higher bandwidth with a very quick access to the internet
- Easily watch TV, streaming videos, albums, and also get access to social media, information, entertainment and online stores
- Valuable Service: Multimedia games, HD videos, e-commerce, mHealth, mCommerce, mobile vault
- Video conference
- M2M (Machine to Machine)
- Voice and SMS not supported on 4G
- Uses USIM (Universal Subscriber Identification Module) which is different from current SIM since it is a 128 KB SIM thus needs a change in mobile number
- Launched in only few citied of India eg: Blore, Pune, Koltata etc

It will be very exciting to see the incredible changes that 4G can bring into India....I can’t wait to see!
