Everyone has heard of 4G. It’s sort of the new “thing” that telecommunications companies are using to sell their products. Starting with Sprint and then Verizon, the concept of 4G has spread like wildfire. But, what exactly is 4G? I can’t be bothered to explain it, since these blogs are meant to be short, sweet, and to the point, but if you want to know what true 4G is, click here. Otherwise, I will just cut right to the chase—they are lying to you. Here’s why…
True 4G is insanely fast. When I say insanely fast, I mean crazy fast. Remember all those days you had to wait for your YouTube video to load? No more! It’ll be done so fast, you won’t have time to socialize with anyone anymore. Human connection will be cut off. But who needs them when you have blazing fast internet? The supposed 4G we have right now is fast, but it’s nowhere near what true 4G speeds would be like (around a gigabit a second). It’s turned into more of a marketing ploy. They will shout 4G till your ears bleed just to make it sound like they are offering everything the opposition is offering. It’s sad, really, what they have come to. At least for now, the only thing 4G is good for is fickle signal and battery draining superpowers.
