The future of 4G


Everyday, students at LRHS use technology to make their lives easier and more efficient. Growing up in a household of tech-buffs, I feel that it is my duty to educate the public about the most recent inventions. Advanced technology is developing quicker everyday, and it is essential that the students know about the technology that is available to them.

Current students at Leesville Road High school grew up accustomed to the third generation of cellular networking, or 3G, for their phones. The new fourth generation will overrun current technology within the upcoming years.

The fourth generation will be using a newer and faster way to transfer information from one cell phone to another. The fourth generation of cellular networks will supply students with high-speed Internet, high-quality video and ultra-clear calling services.

Newly released phones such as the Evo 4G from Sprint are simply advanced 3G phones that have yet to completely fit the 4G requirements.

As of now, service providers are trying to find a way to have phones like the Evo 4G become compatible with the new 4G network. Projects like these have funds of billions of dollars and are quickly developing.

4G phones will provide users with many advantages and comforts.  Users will be able to access the Internet at instant speeds.  Stationary users will be able to support video, video calling and online games with the 4G service.

In terms of cost, phones like the Evo 4G range from $150-$300. The new 4G phones will probably be $600-$700; however they will be faster and smarter.  

For use in public, 4G phones will be able to use WiMax in place of WiFi. WiMax is an advanced version of WiFi and will guarantee better service to students.

4G phones will provide a whole new world of entertainment and communication to the students at LRHS
