4G supports mobile phone use
4G technology enables everything to be shared faster. The use of 4G-compatible smartphones, tablets or laptops becomes smoother and immediate. New uses are made possible, with compatible equipment, such as HDTV on mobile devices and streaming HD video on the go. These new speeds are changing the mobile Internet experience for users: they watch their programs in HD, and legally download movies and series almost instantly.
Note that data consumption doubles every year on the mobile network.
