1. Better quality video calling

If you’ve ever tried having a video
conference call over a lower-speed 3G or even 2G connection, you will know what
a difficult experience it can be as the person on Face Time or Skype turns into
a series of messed-up pixels and the voice disintegrates into Dale-type
dialogue. It’s better to use a much faster 4G connection which should ensure
you can both see and hear the person you are conversing with.

2. Quicker video downloading and
streaming

If you spend half your time waiting
for videos to download, then 4G will be a godsend. For example, downloading a
10-minute video clip on a 3G connection can take you several minutes. The same
clip on a 4G connection will take about 35 seconds. Also video streaming apps,
such as BBC iPlayer, YouTube and Netflix, will work much quicker without
buffering. In central London with even faster 4G+ a 30-minute HD video takes
about two minutes to download, compared with eight on standard 4G connection.

 

3. Create a personal Wi-Fi hotspot

Rather than relying on a public Wi-Fi
connection in a coffee shop or airport to connect your laptop, a far better
option is to use your 4G-enabled phone as a personal hotspot. Not only will
this be far more secure, it’s also convenient as it effectively means you can
work anywhere with a mobile phone signal without having to buy a latte. With
4G, the connection speed is also often much quicker than public Wi-Fi, which is
prone to slowing down at certain times of the day when there are a lot of users
sharing it. 4G-equipped phones such as the iPhone 5 and 6 series have a
personal  hotspot option that gives you a
code to input into another device, be it a laptop or a tablet, in order to get
connected.

 

4. Upload large files on the move

Although much is made of the
impressive download speed of 4G, typically about 15 Mbit/s, upload speeds are a
lot faster than 3G too, making it much easier to send files while you are out
and about. With standard 4G, upload speeds are about 5.5Mbit/s, while
with 4GEE you are looking at about 11Mbit/sec. This means you can upload
large files such as high-resolution images, spreadsheets or high-definition
(HD) video, directly to the office server much more quickly than you could with
a slower 2G or 3G connection

5. Speedier web browsing and apps

Although you can browse the web using
a 3G phone, you will see a big difference in the time it takes pages to load up
with 4G. For example, if you are browsing the internet, the average web page
will load in 0.2 seconds using double-speed 4G. On standard 4G, it’ll be 0.5
seconds and on 3G technology it’ll be about 1.7 seconds. For larger downloads
(eg apps and games), the increased speed becomes even more noticeable,
especially when using double-speed 4G. Take a typical smartphone
app (about 13MB in size). On double-speed
4G, it’ll take 3.5 seconds to download, whereas for normal 4G, it’s a
seven-second download which is still extremely quick.
