Modern Russian mobile market is simply impossible without mobile Internet, which in a short time has become an integral part of everyday life for millions of people.
High-speed mobile Internet is associated with 3G and 4G communication standards.
It is necessary to find out what they look like.
Mobile third-generation network
3G (Third Generation) - is a mobile networkpenultimate generation, based on the UMTS technology and supports data rates up to 3.6 Mbit / s. This speed is enough to safely use the Internet telephony, video communication sessions, create remote virtual conferences, etc.
Apart from the difference in speed, an ordinary usermobile Internet feel that the number of discontinuities of the Internet has decreased significantly. This is due to the technology of so-called "soft handover." The bottom line is that a person in motion, moves from one mobile operator to another coverage area. The stronger the signal from one cell, the greater the amount of data transmitted through it. And the weaker signal from it, the smaller the data packet reaches the subscriber.
The fourth generation of mobile communications
4G allows you to transfer data atspeeds of up to 100 Mbit / s, and the upper speed threshold can be increased from a theoretical point of view. Russian mobile operators provide mobile internet services using 4G networks based on LTE technology, which provides broadband, multi-channel data transfer.
With 4G subscribers of mobile operators mayeasy to upload gigabytes of information available in the network, communicate using internet telephony, file sharing, and in general - to do everything that can afford users with desktop computers wired to the Internet.
Devices that support 3G and 4G
Modern communicators without exceptionsupport, at least, 3G standard. This means that consuming about 3000 rubles for an inexpensive device, the owner will be free to go online and use it at high speed anywhere in the coverage area of the mobile operator. Also available may be a 3G-modem which are designed to ensure that the Internet was available everywhere for owners of notebooks and netbooks.
4G is supported by many moderncommunicators, but their price may seem excessive. This is justified, because the speed of the Internet increases many times as compared to 3G, and there is a price. It was created and 4G-modem using this technology. In the Russian market there is a similar standard is only the second year, but has already reached a multimillion reach customers across the country.
