4G, 3G: Who knows?

This morning Broadcom announced 5G: "´╗┐Broadcom Extends 5G WiFi Leadership with New 802.11ac Chips." This is kind of funny because most folks are confused by 3G versus 4G. Many think that iPhones run on 4G, but actually they all run...

Quick LTE Thought

So yesterday during the keynotes, @tomkeating tweeted “4G and LTE won’t solve bandwidth problem - said Charles Vogt at #ITEXPO”. I think that LTE and 4G are just marketing ploys. Its still physics. At the end of the day, new...
