FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are the benefits of 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) Networks?
- Speed – 4G LTE networks can transfer data up to 10 times faster than 3G networks.
- Higher Capacity – LTE can support up to 200 active data clients at full speed for every 5MHz of spectrum.
- Efficiency – LTE provides improved use of the available spectrum.
Can my 3G device be upgraded to work on 4G LTE?
No, you cannot update a 3G phone to support 4G. Hardware components of a 3G device such as the radio/modem will not support 4G, the processor and software on your device may not support 4G either. To operate on a 4G or 5G network requires a device that is compatible from both a hardware and software perspective.
Why not skip 4G and upgrade directly to 5G?
- If you live and work in an area with 5G coverage or wish to take advantage of more advanced capabilities as they become available, then 5G is a great option.
- 3G will sunset well before 5G is widely available. While 5G devices will work on 4G the higher cost of a 5G device may not be worth it if your primary use is not in a 5G area.
- 4G LTE will be around for many years to come and it is very unlikely that a device will become obsolete in a typical lifespan.
