3G (Third Generation)

3G is the third generation of wireless telecommunications technology. It supports peak data rates of 144 Kbps at mobile user speeds, 384 Kbps at pedestrian speeds, and 2 Mbps in fixed locations. 3G passes signals through a network of cell towers, allowing for a fast and reliable data connection over long distances.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About 3G (Third Generation)

SMBs benefit from 3G because it provides more reliability, bandwidth, and security than previous wireless telecommunications technologies. As a result, these companies can send and receive data in less time and with fewer resources, helping them carry out day-to-day tasks, such as emailing customers and paying bills online, more efficiently.
