If you have a cellphone or use a wireless network on your push-to-talk two-way radios, you want the fastest, most reliable network to ensure that messages are easily sent and received, and done so quickly. Having a poor connection makes any device, like a cellphone or two-way radio, practically useless, so it’s always important to make sure that whatever device your using, it’s backed by a fast and reliable network.
4G service providers like to boast about how fast their wireless networks are. But how fast are they really? Compared to 3G networks, 4G networks are at least 10 times as fast!
Speeds can vary depending on a number of factors, such as location, network load, device, and service provider, but generally speaking, 4G networks are extremely fast.
4G vs 4G LTE
You’ve probably heard of 4G LTE, but many people don’t realize that 4G and 4G LTE networks are not the same. 4G means “fourth generation”, aka the next generation after 3G. LTE stands for “long-term evolution”, basically it means it was built to last and provides the fastest speeds and best performance.
4G LTE is significantly faster than traditional 4G. If you have 4G LTE, you’ll notice your connection is so great and so fast that it’s like you’re right next to your home router.
4G LTE is also widely available, so you don’t have to worry about constantly gaining and losing a signal. Plus, it’s much more affordable than it has been in the past, so you don’t need to have disposable income to get connected to 4G LTE service.
If 4G LTE devices are clearly the better option, then why aren’t they widely used? That’s because 4G LTE isn’t supported by all devices and all service providers. So, to access 4G LTE you must have a compatible service provider and device.

Most people are unaware of this little fact, but a Major Telecom provider plans to sunset its 3G network in 2021. This means that any 3G device will become obsolete on their network. Therefore, now is the best time to make the switch to 4G.
