What does 4G stand for?

Fourth generation cellular data technologies

4G stands for the fourth generation of mobile communication technology standards. This technology is used in mobile phones and was first introduced to the public by a company called Sprint in 2009, in the United States.

This technology has to meet certain criteria laid out by the International Telecommunications Union. These specifications ensure a standard level of quality and performance. In essence, 4G technology replaced the previous standard, which was 3G.

Often, when mobile phones are advertised, you’ll see the term 4G mentioned. This is because 4G technology offers faster data speeds and better connectivity than its predecessor, making it a key selling point for mobile phones.
