T-Mobile to Launch 4G Nationwide Mid-2010

What is 4G? It depends who you ask.

The ITU Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R) defines 4G as International Mobile Telecommunications Advanced which is a cellular system that must have target peak data rates of up to approximately 100 Mbps for a high mobility connection and 1 Gbps for low mobility.

On the other hand, you have a carrier like Sprint which is marketing its WiMax network as “The first and only wireless 4G network from a national carrier”. Their WiMax network has a target peak of 10 Mbps, but real world tests place the speeds between 3-6 Mbps. It is still a heck of a lot faster than most 3G networks, so Sprint felt justified in calling it 4G.

So really, 4G is just a marketing term.

  1. I was curious if you ever thought of changing
    the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text
    for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  2. I savor, cause I found just what I was taking a look for.
    You have ended my 4 day lengthy hunt! God Bless you man. Have a nice day.
    Bye

  3. I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering
    problems with your site. It appears as though some of the text within your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This could be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Kudos

  4. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wished
    to say that I’ve truly enjoyed surfing around your blog posts.
    After all I’ll be subscribing to your feed
    and I hope you write again very soon!

  5. Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many
    months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

  6. You should take part in a contest for one of the best sites online.
    I’m going to highly recommend this website!

  7. Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this web site before but after
    looking at many of the articles I realized it’s new to me.

    Anyhow, I’m certainly pleased I found it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back
    often!

  8. Thanks for finally talking about >T-Mobile to Launch 4G Nationwide
    Mid-2010 | Fierce Technology <Loved it!

  9. Will they really like each other, and are they compellingly attracted to
    one another. In 1873 traveler and writer John Codman visited
    Ophir as part of his research for his book “Mormon Country – A summer with the Latter Day Saints”.
    Here you will be able to stitch in your floor shot.

  10. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get setup?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be
    greatly appreciated. Thanks

  11. Great goods from you, man. I’ve have in mind your stuff previous to and you’re simply too great.
    I really like what you have bought here, certainly like what you’re stating and
    the way in which through which you say it.
    You’re making it enjoyable and you continue to care for to stay it sensible.

    I cant wait to read much more from you. That is actually a great web site.
