The next generation technology standard taking over 3G is 4G. Networks that support 4G are LTE and WiMax. A major benefit of 4G technology is its ability to support a wide variety of transmission media used worldwide. These devices include: tablets, smartphones, TVs, laptops, cloud computing, interactive gaming, and video conferencing, just to name a few. In order for these devices and others to function successfully and to function efficiently and quickly, a much higher capacity network is needed. 4G has this capability. Standard connection speeds for 4G must be at least 100 megabits per second.
