I believe that 4G LTE is definitely an advantage to have in our phones. Now, to some of us the terms 3G and 4G are one of the most less-explained terms in mobile technology. The “G” stands for generation and for you have access the latest “G”, you would need to buy a new phone. When 3G first came, it offered speed of up to 114Kbps and was dubbed as mobile broadband. Nowadays technology has advanced so much that you can reach 400Kbps and even several times that speed with 3G. Some network’s 3G speeds are even faster than 4g speeds on other networks. There is one rule to follow, each generation should be faster than the previous one – that is, on the same network/carrier. For example, the 4G technology at is always faster than its CDMA 3G. Hope this helps.

No, you don’t need to do anything on your phone to support the 4G LTE network. The 4G LTE network is either made available to you by your network provider automatically or is being offered as per subscription basis like what most of the cellular network companies did in our country.

Because this is an improvement in the communication technology, all network providers that will be offering this service need to have a major upgrade in their system so they can support 4G LTE. The speed that this network offer is undoubtedly very far from what 3G network can give. Since this is the fourth generation of mobile communication that’s why it’s called 4G and the LTE stands for Long Term Evolution.

Accessing the web via mobile phone is now faster when using 4G. The speed of the connection is very similar to home broadband. It is ideal for services that have necessities for greater capacities as in social networking sites, video streaming, mapping, and others. The download speed is around 5 to 7 times faster than 3G.

The average speed when you are in 4G is around 6 Mbit/s far from 1 Mbit/s average speed in 3G. If you’ll be downloading an entire album that will eat 20 minutes when done in 3G, it will only take around 3 minutes or longer if it is in 4G.
