Technology continues to improve and can be difficult to track all new innovations and breakthroughs. It seems that every time we turn on the television, we are bombarded with new products. Often, we don’t know what these products do or why we need it.
One of the most confusing fields of technology concerning the internet and many ways in which we can receive it at home and our business.
When the internet first arrived, the dial-up connection was the only way to get it. At this time, we may not understand how the technology works, but we know that if we will use it, we will need a dial-up connection. It’s easy to achieve this conclusion because there are no other options available.
Then the cable modem arrives and we have to start making a decision about how we want to get the internet. However, this is also not an option that is difficult to make because it is clear to see that getting the internet using a much better cable modem. For one thing, the cable modem doesn’t interfere with our phone calls. When using a dial-up connection that depends on the telephone line, all calls, both ingoing and out, stopped. No need someone who knows a lot about technology to see how this is a big limit, especially in business problems. Next, the cable modem allows us to get internet at a greater speed. Again, it doesn’t need a genius to know that it’s faster better.
When wireless internet appears, it’s easy to see how new technology is a better choice than a cable modem. Not only this new technology is much faster, but because wireless, does not rely on any fixed connections, we get great mobility. Now we can explore the web from any place at home and our business.
But wireless technology still improves. Suddenly, we hear a lot of luxury terms and we don’t know what it means or if they are relevant to our needs. We are hearing provisions such as 2G and 3G. Recently, radical new technology known as 4G appeared. If you feel lost and confused, don’t worry. Most people don’t fully understand what these words mean. Here are some general information that can help you.
In the internet world, speed is the name of the game. The biggest, most important, the difference between 3G and 4G technology is speed. There are two types of speeds to focus when discussing differences between 3G and 4G. The first type of speed is called the download speed. Download speed measures how fast information can be accessed when using a laptop or handheld device. The second type of speed is called upload speed. This speed measures how fast information can be transmitted to the Internet. Regarding both types of speed, 4G technology blew 3G technology.
