What is 4G?
Fourth generation (4G) mobile communication technology has long promised white hot data transmission rates over longer distances in comparison to 2G and 3G mobile networks. In fact, it’s expected to offer an experience more like your home broadband.
Whereas the average speed of 3G is 1Mbit per second, 4G comes in at 6Mbit per second. That’s up to seven times faster! So a music album that takes 20 minutes to download over 3G, 4G delivers in just over three minutes.
Future proof with Lumia
With the largest array of Microsoft Lumia 4G ready devices (including Lumia 735, 830, 930, 635, 1520, 1320, 1020, 2520, 925 and 625) buying a Lumia smartphone is the easiest way to ‘future proof’ your purchase. Plus our handsets run on all 4G network providers, making Lumia the smart choice of smartphone.
At the moment, EE, O2, Tesco, Vodafone and Three offer high-speed mobile internet, with coverage growing all the time. By 2017 4G is expected to reach at least 95% of the UK.
