To 4G or not 4G is the question...

JohnnyBravo 02 Dec 2012, 13:01 posted on

For all those who experience 4G LTE, if someone offered you a free super megaphone with all the specs but with 3G would you switch or stay with your 4G device?

A lot of people say that 4G LTE is not necessary and I agree with that comment. I also believe that people putting the Nexus 4 device down simply because it doesnt have 4G LTE is asinine. However, with that said, once you experience 4G LTE it becomes REALLY hard to go back to 3G.

That question would depend on whether you consume alot of media.
With my typical usage, 3G is not an option, it's 4G or bust. From tethering my tablet to use streaming video services or upload images to being able to seamlessly stream music from Spotify and Tune In without buffering pauses at the highest quality is absolutely great. 3G is good, but as I started streaming more media, it became a nuissance, waiting for buffers of having to endure lower quality. If your main use is text based, i.e. ttweets, FB status updates reading news, 4G doesn't matter. If you consume alot of media, it makes a big difference, especially when it is video on these new high res screens.

I might take a phone with 3G to play around with, but it isn't worth money to me. My little droid gets 20-25 mbps, I can watch HD youtube videos anywhere. My wife's 3G phone gets .5 - .8 mbps. 3g shouldn't be a billable data plan anymore, 3G phones should simply be free data. It isn't like they can even use enough data to affect the network handling LTE speeds.

to say 3g doesn't affect 4g lte is to say that because your electricity consumption doesn't affect your gas consumption, you shouldn't have to pay for it

T-mobile does it. There's no cap on data, just high speed data.

Honestly, I agree that 4G is faster. I dont live on the internet like most of the people do so going back to an affordable 3G device isn't a problem for me.

I have not been fortuante enough to experience LTE speeds myself, as it will only be present in my country in some 3-5 years, I would assume, but my home Internet connection is basically as fast as LTE in somewhat crowded markets, at 20 Mbps.
I use an iPhone 4S on Orange (in Israel). 3G speeds typically max out for me at around 3 Mbps, sometimes as high as 6 Mbps. This is completely fine for me - due to iOS' limitations, I cannot download an application that's over 50MB in size anyway, so I don't feel like it's too slow for me. I rarely watch videos on my phone, but when I do, they play quite well - not in a very high quality, mind you, but still watchable, if that word even exists.
When I do need a faster connection, I would normally be in my house, where I would actually rarely use my iPhone. I am much more inclined to use my iPad, Mac or Apple TV for catching up on new videos from my YouTube subscription.
I guess that need for LTE is not present for me, because of my phone. If I had a device with a display that measures at least 4.3-inches diagonally, my statement would have possibly been different, as my use patterns would have probably changed, favoring more media consumption when I'm away from home.

By the end of 2014 the Verizon Wireless 3G network's bandwith will be so miniscule that it will become basically non-existent. LTE is the way to go no doubt.

I agree with Mr Bogei comment..its all about consumption,time and availability of service..But once u taste 4g then its hard to come back to 3g unless non availability of service
