The fourth generation of the wireless network is what 4G stands for. The first generation was the analog (1G) network, then the digital (2G) network which was followed by the 3G network that we currently have today. 4G refers to all IP packet-switched networks, mobile ultra broadband access and multi-carrier transmission.
The new network is going to give users an experience like no other. Consumers will be able to download at high speeds, view and stream live videos, and we can only imagine what the mobile gaming industy is going to do. The possiblity of what an application can do is now going to be further than ever before.
4G is cell phone revolution that we need; and Sprint is way ahead of the pack. 4G is currently being offered in 27 markets and their are plans to continue rolling out new markets, including Boston, Denver, Houston, Kansas City, Minneapolis, New York City, San Francisco, and Washington D.C.
