4G, the high speed injection that everyone is talking about

At a time when 4G is starting to be available on our networks and revolutionising our navigation experience by becoming really usable, we ask ourselves what will change for people who download from the internet. Let WIKO introduce you to 4G and provide you with a quick overview that is simple, clear and essential.

4G – what is it? 4G (also known as LTE) is the 4th generation of mobile technology. It succeeds the 3G, which to date has been mostly used for smartphones, offering speeds of up to 42Mbps (Megabits per second). In telecommunications, 4G is now offering what is known as “mobile broadband,” in other words data transmission at a speed that is 15 times faster than 3G!

In France, over 3.5 million 4G compatible mobile phones seduced users in 2013, and that number is expected to increase to 8.5 million users by the end of 2014...

So what has really changed? The speed at which information passes through the network. With 4G, users can surf the internet at very high speeds. Suffice to say that this increase in sharing and downloading speeds opens up lots of exciting new perspectives. Simply put, with 4G you will be able to download a song instantly, and a film of 700MB will be available on your smartphone in less than two minutes! Farewell interminable latency, now the most complex web pages are displayed in seconds and you will be able to browse one website after another as easily as if you were connected to your broadband at home.

WIKO will help you enjoy the 4G experience. Because 4G is expected to become widely available, WIKO is innovating and facilitating your navigation experience with smartphones packed full of cutting-edge technology.

So now are you convinced by 4G?
