WHO NEEDS 4G? ... get 3G running stable at a speed of around 20Mbps then it should suit 95% of people.
For the rest, get fibre or microwave or satellite?

Who needs 4G? Please give us 3G at least. And while you're about it, give the towers the ability to handle more connections. I'm tired of getting 100% signal but towers are overloaded.

All that 3G equipment that is being upgraded to 4G in the city (where there is a tower every 50 meters), send that out to us in the country where we can only get EDGE.

4G has a lot lower (and more stable) latency and can allow them to service people at 20Mbps. There is a reason we are moving to 4G.

We heard today that the label "4G" does not exist and it does exist ..... at the same time ? (Jannie sez so, and won two cases with the ASA making both arguments ) :whistling:

So what are you guys all talking about ????
