2G vs 3G vs 4G

2G, 3G and 4G are mobile network technologies that deliver mobile broadband.

2G (second Generation) was designed primarily for voice and text, although capable of transferring data but only very slowly and unreliably.

3G (third Generation) is successor to 2G and is primarily designed for data transfer. It can transfer data up to 21 Mbps, with typical speeds of 2 - 3 Mbps.

4G (fourth Generation) is the latest mobile broadband technology offering (only available in Kolkata, Bengaluru, Pune and Chandigarh) data transfer speeds of up to 100 Mbps, but typical speeds will be in the range of 12 - 15 Mbps.

Mobile Broadband Tips

  1. Try before you buy

    The worst decision you can make is to rush out and buy a 3G data plan without really knowing whether the service in your area is any good.

    Most 3G providers will give you a demo to test coverage and speed in your area. So make sure you Try before you Buy.

  2. Estimate your data usage

    Your data usage will drive the price you pay for your 3G data plan.

    Estimate your data usage using a data calculator to get a rough idea about how much data you will need every month.

  3. Monitor your data usage

    It is very important that you monitor your data usage once every few days, so that you don't cross your 3G plan's data allowance.

    Crossing your data allowance will lead to a huge data bill if you don't have a capped or a reduced speed plan.

  4. Buy Unlocked device

    Buying a 3G USB Modem / Dongle / Data Card or Mobile WiFi device packaged with a data offer from a service provider is tempting but it will come locked to it's own network restricting you from switching in case you are not happy.

    Most service providers will allow you to bring your own unlocked mobile broadband device when you buy a 3G SIM Only data plan.

  5. Read the Fine Print

    You should always read the fine print before you sign-up for a 3G data plan.

    Check for things like data allowance, plan validity, speed, capped amount/speed, data charges when you exceed the limit, roaming charges and any other restriction that comes with the plan.
