Making Mobile Broadband Communication Even Faster

(NAPSI)-In this age of high-speed communication, the faster you can get your message across and the more places you can send it from, the better—so it can pay to stay on top of the latest developments in technology.

Currently, the front-runner in the communication technology race is 4G. 4G stands for the fourth generation of cellular wireless standards. It succeeds 3G and 2G standards, offering secure ultrabroadband Internet access and multimedia use.

With 4G, you can do everything faster—download, watch, transfer and share. And you can do it from pretty much anywhere, with any Wi-Fi-enabled device—the computer at the office, laptop at the beach, phone from the train or gaming device on the family road trip.

A few providers are testing networks, and one company, Sprint, already offers 4G service to customers in 68 markets. The Overdrive 3G/4G Hotspot enables any Wi-Fi-capable device, such as iPad, Nook eBook, Zune HD and Netbook, to become a 4G device where the 4G network is available.

Overdrive can also simultaneously connect up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices such as iPhone, iTouch, Palm Pre, laptops and gaming devices.

The 3G/4G dual-mode devices, such as Overdrive 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot, provide the coverage and dependability of the 3G network plus the immediacy and power of 4G where it’s available.

The company has also launched 15 4G-capable devices, including America’s first 4G-capable handsets—HTC EVO 4G and Samsung Epic 4G. Both incredible 3G phones, HTC EVO 4G and Samsung Epic 4G—when used on the 4G network—make it possible to download music, pictures, files or videos in seconds—not minutes.

The company delivers downlink speeds that are up to 10 times faster than 3G and provides peak speeds of over 10 Mbps (average download speeds of 3−6 Mbps).
