Compare 3G AND 4G
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
Do you need a 4G device or is 3G okay? Well, that depends what you need to do with your phone, tablet or laptop. You can get superfast data speeds with a 4G-compatible device, which is ideal if you like to browse the Web, watch video clips and download apps.
COMPARE SPEED FOR 3G AND 4G
UNDERSTANDING 3G AND 4G
The ‘G’ stands for ‘generation’, so 4G is the fourth generation of wireless internet technology, and it’s an improvement on 3G. For smoother and quicker data transfers 4G is better: you’ll have faster web browsing and image download times.
Right now you still use the 3G network for making and receiving calls, and will switch to 3G data outside of 4G coverage areas.
