4G will be 3 times faster, Ofcom says

Increased network capacity, please!

4G trafficNew Ofcom research reveals that the next generation of mobile technology will deliver more than 200% of the capacity of existing 3G technologies, using the same amount of spectrum – the airwaves that carry information between customers’ mobile handsets and the internet. A user on a 4G network will be able to download a video 3 times faster than it takes today on a 3G network. It is anticipated that this efficiency will increase to approximately 5.5 times (450%) by 2020.

This demand in faster traffic is fuelled by the growth of smartphones and mobile broadband data services such as video streaming, email, messenger services, mapping services and social networking.

4G network4G mobile technologies will be rolled out in the UK from 2013 and are set to deliver significantly faster mobile broadband services – approaching today’s ADSL home broadband speeds. The term 4G is generally used to refer to mobile broadband services delivered using the next generation of mobile broadband technologies including Long Term Evolution (LTE) and WiMAX.
