4G mobile broadband.

Recommended Posts

Here in the UK we are all completely digital on our TV now. The digital switchover completed earlier this year.

 

So I was a bit disappointed to read that a company has apparently been set up to help almost 1 million people whose digital TV services may be badly affected next year when 4G goes nationwide.

 

Apparently the company will be funded by the successful bidders in the 800MHz (4G wavelength) auction. More info is to be made available on the level of funding in the form of vouchers which will be needed to pay for filters or any work needed.

Why is it called 4G? (and 3G, etc.?) What does the G stand for? Gigabytes? Gravitas? Granola? Gaga? :wacko:

In terms of phone speeds, it also stands for a speed rating.

I'd bet the bicycle creation order went something like this...

4 wheels

3 wheels

2 wheels

unicycle

 

So a 3G bike would be a regular bicycle. ;)
