3G and 4G Deployment is Ongoing—but Not as Fast as Advertised

If you live in a major metropolitan area, or a thriving mid-size city, you will have access to multiple providers’ 3G service, but as you move away from these large-market areas, service declines—although construction of upgraded networks continues at a rapid pace. We all understand that advertising is intended to create interest in new technologies and services, and will appear ahead of those services’ availability. The good news is that 3G wireless service is catching up with the promises of the ads, but the bad news is that a whole new generation of smart phones and advanced wireless services has created additional demands on the networks.
