Sprint Makes the Push to 4G

in General

What the heck is 4G? Here is a bit from Wikipedia:      “4G refers to the fourth generation of cellular wireless standards. It is a successor to 3G and 2G standards, with the aim to provide a wide range of data rates up to ultra-broadband (gigabit-speed) Internet access to mobile as well as stationary users.”

So now you know what 4G means (kinda) so here is an article telling you more.

Just when you were starting to get comfortable with the 3G cellular landscape, its time to start thinking about moving onto the next new new thing–4G.

Warren, Larry Emmott I was going to make a lame joke about…who knew they even had high speed in Sascatoon…but then decided that the more relevant comment was that technology is such a culteral leveler. The fact is it no longer takes years for the culture to trickle out from New York to the hinterlands. It takes minutes.

The other relevant point is standards. Yes it would be great if everything worked together. In fact that merits a thoughtful blog post…thanks for the idea :-)
