BANGALORE: Gone are the days when people used to have 2G and 3G in their mobile to download videos, now the new trend is going to be 4G. Of course! The fourth generation of wireless services is expected to offer from 4 to 10 times faster service than 3G. Yes, indeed! Recently Nokia Solutions and Networks and SK Telecom have managed to achieve 4G speed of 3.78 Gbps, which is about 400 times faster than what service providers in India offer you. In reference to this Nokia said that “Nokia and SK Telecom reached a throughput speed of 3.78 gigabits per second (gbps). At this speed, a mobile broadband user can download a full-length 5 GB high-definition (HD) movie in just 11 seconds”.



In simple words you would be able to download a 5GB high definition video or movie within 11 seconds flat with a 4G connection sprinting along at a pace of 3.78 Gbps. Nokia and SK Telecom managed to achieve this speed by aggregating 10 spectrum frequencies for 200 megahertz of spectrum. This speed is almost 10 times higher than the broadband wireless spectrum won by companies in 2010.



Nowadays with cloud computing increasing in demand and the amount of people sharing this through social networks and similar services,  there is no doubt that more and more people will go beyond requiring just fast downloads. According to Vice president of TD-LTE at Nokia, Zhang Qi, the telecom operators across the world can now not only download zipped documents but can upload data too.



In India, Airtel offers a 4G speed of up to 10 megabits per second on the iPhone 5S and 5C, according to its website. Recently, Videocon Telecom in a statement also offered a similar 4G speed. But when compared to Airtel and Videocon, the 4G speed achieved by Nokia is 400 times faster. Nokia, which now focuses on networks, mobile solutions and telecom equipment after selling its handset business to Microsoft, earlier demonstrated a speed of 2.6 gbps with U.S. telecom operator Sprint.
