China Mobile began to test 4G network in the laboratory in 2009, field test in 2010-2011, trial commercial in 2012 and commercial in 2013. Unknowingly, 4G network has been with us for about 7 years.
It’s also the time when 4G network really comes that we really feel the charm of the Internet. But in 2021, have you ever thought about how long our 4G can last without changing 5g?
Comparing 4G network with 5g network, the traffic consumption is really too fast to use
Although the 5g network is unstable, the demand for 5g network will further increase in 2021. The unstable network can be replaced by 4G network, but the high 5g package and extreme traffic consumption are the key to 4G users’ delay in upgrading.
The 5g network, which is 100 times faster than the 4G network and more than 1000 times faster than the 4G network, is simply a Warcraft specialized in swallowing traffic under the bad description of users. Although it can download the content quickly, the traffic spent is more than seven or eight times that of the 4G network.
It is still an extremely uneconomical thing for 4G users to invest a high cost to change an irrelevant network speed, which requires the three operators to consume as much traffic or even less as much content.
However, since entering the 3G era, no operator has ever implemented such technology. Otherwise, there will be no strange thing such as Baidu network disk. Even mobile phone manufacturers have their own network acceleration services. Therefore, they are really reluctant to change it before the problem of traffic consumption and traffic charges is solved.
4G network jumps from 3G. What changes have taken place
4G communication technology is continuously optimized, upgraded and innovated based on 3G communication technology. On the one hand, 4G network integrates the advantages of 3G communication technology, on the other hand, 4G network also derives a series of its own inherent characteristics, among which WLAN technology is the development focus of 4G network.
If we compare 4G network and 3G network simply by downloading and uploading two key network nodes, the difference is particularly obvious, whether it is quality restoration or speed assurance.
First of all, 4G communication can basically realize the original image and original video HD transmission in the picture and video transmission of mobile phones. The transmission quality is comparable to that of computers. Therefore, QQ and wechat can launch the original image transmission function. In the past, the data was basically compressed by the program itself.
Secondly, after the popularization of 4G communication technology, the download speed of software, files, pictures, audio and video has also been greatly improved, up to tens of megabytes per second, which can not be realized by 3G communication technology. In 3G network, the traffic consumption speed is calculated in KB.
If 5g is not used, how long can 4G be used? Can 4G users persist?
When 5g is not very reliable, how long the 4G network can be used is a matter of concern to everyone. Recently, executives of China Telecom have said that all their energy will be focused on the construction of 5g network. The 4G network has stopped updating and even demolished some base stations.
In December 2020, the three major operators are already trying to shut down the services of some 2G base stations. It is expected that they will be basically shut down in January 2021. At the same time, 3G network has also entered the countdown to the demolition of the three major operators, which is really fast.
On the one hand, 2G base station and 3G base station have just entered the countdown. On the other hand, the upgrade of 4G base station has stopped, which means that the 4G network we can experience is already in the best state. With the passage of time, the condition of 4G network will become worse and worse.
Therefore, if 4G netizens want to keep 4G network for a long time and refuse 5g, it is still impossible. The three operators will not make you feel good, so they should also aim at a good 5g mobile phone and be ready to be 5g citizens.
6G is coming. Do you want to continue upgrading? 5g do you want to continue to dismantle it?
The problem of 6G has been taken into consideration. As far as the current situation is concerned, even if the 6G network comes, we also use the 5g network. The 5g base station will not be removed, and the network speed will not be affected.
The main reason is that 6G network is actually a combination of space satellite and ground 5g base station. Building a three-dimensional network system of ground and air has little to do with people’s daily life.
