What are the G, H+, E,3G,4G,5G and LTE?

If you use Android,iOS or Windows based Smart Phones when you have meet something in upper right corner of the Phone which few bars shown your network signal strength generally.It represent through the varies types Letter given some Greek term and get some struggle in mind normally.Anyway,have you seen such letters on your Smart Device?If you are not seen that when you can see it just now.It is very important term which represent the running network type on your Smart Device.The documentation will provide you all details about the current network types in the world.You can know them now,okay just start now….


5G is one of the superb and the latest  mobile technology which designed to greatly increase the speed and responsiveness of wireless networks. With 5G, the data transmitted through wireless broadband connections allow travel at speeds of up to 20 Gbps, according to some estimates, exceeding the speeds of the red lines, as well as offering a latency of 1 ms or less to use that require feedback in real time. 5G also means an abrupt increase in the amount of data transmitted through wireless systems due to the increased bandwidth available and advanced antenna technology.

LTE – Long Term Evolution (4G*)

LTE provides the fastest data network connection today, theoretically offering speeds of up to 100 Mb / s. LTE is faster than many domestic broadband connections and, as such, allows fast downloads, streaming of Full HD videos or music, and loading of very fast pages. giffgaff is currently preparing to update network to LTE, but for now I did not see icon on his phone. LTE is confusingly associated with the term 4G. Actually, the 4G standard is one that has not yet been reached, which requires speeds of 1 Gb / s, about ten times faster than current LTE networks. The proliferation of the term is unfortunate, but even the true 4G networks of agreement available, you can simply take the two terms in practice.

H+ – HSDPA Plus

HSDPA Plus is the fastest option currently, supported by giffgaff, at around 21 Mb / s. In many versions of Android “H +” is shown, but in Android 4.4 it is only shown as “H”. H + allows you to easily stream HD videos and is comparable to the average home broadband connection.

H – HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access)

HSDPA is a slightly slower version of HSDPA +, which offers data speeds of around 7.2 Mb / s. This is the minimum speed to transmit a reliable content of an HD video, and even more, a good web browsing and music streaming.

3G – 3rd Generation (aka UMTS)

3G data networks were the first to support video calls, with download speeds of up to 2 Mb / s (although speeds of only 384 Kb / s were initially supported). It was at this stage that the mobile Internet became decent, and we saw an explosion of new capabilities for mobile phones in the early 2000s (such as email, in relation to BlackBerry).

E – EDGE (Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution)

EDGE can be considered as 2.75G, new speeds of up to 384 kb / s. EDGE was developed as an economical way for operators to make 2G networks at almost 3G speeds, without the need to build a completely new infrastructure. EDGE is rare in the UK, but what is more common over time, usually, it is enough to search for something if you have patience. Interestingly, this means that EDGE came after 3G even though it is a slower standard.

G – GPRS (General Packet Radio Service)

GPRS is a bit faster than the previous GSM standard that first popularized data connections. For that reason, GPRS is called 2.5G, an improvement in 2G, but not enough to require a new number. Data speeds are around 115 kb / s, which is enough to load a simple web page or your train schedule (if you have a consistent connection and some patience).

This was the first data service “always connected” and the oldest with which it connects with Android, iOS or Windows Phone. While there are older networks, they probably will not find them these days and it is better to leave them aside from the historical mind.

That really fast chart has improved mobile Internet speeds over the last decade, has seen a 1000-fold increase in Internet speeds. With LTE-Avanzado and other ‘true’ 4G networks on the horizon, capable of transmitting 4K videos and probably some things that we are not aware of, we are not going to delay us soon!
