    First delivery 4G everywhere and unlimited data plans for either cheaper or free. It's all well and good bringing all these new and awesome technologies but when we have data caps or expensive plans it's pretty much useless imho.

    I wish that Internet would be used for TV, Phone, Mobiles and unlimited data, but hey, no one would make billions now would they...

    The problem with data standards is everyone is so slow and reluctant to move up to the newest one.

    Also, the problem with wireless data period is that it costs a laughable amount. at least in america.

    My best advice to you is to pull out the Concise Oxford dictionary and look up the word "union". Once you've understood what the word means you 'should' be able to answer your own question.

    lol, just watched an old supply-your-own-dialogue 'prawn' movie in which the actor definitely has no geography credits.
    he said to the woman, "so, you're from European?...". he repeated the question several times more. to be sure that I didn't miss the first time, I was forced to watch the movie several times too. :)

    on topic: wow at 1000x projected speed of 5g technology versus current 4g.

    currently, Philippine telecoms now offer 20-30mbps over 4g LTE using LTE-capable smartphones as claimed by some subscribers.

    Our 4G LTE is quite rapid as well but unfortunately you have to have a contract with a wireless provider and their prices are eye bulging. Fortunately I'm on wi-fi 90% of the time and if I want to use mobile data which is not all that often, 3G is still good enough for me.

    my bad. my comment just posted even if I didn't post it yet.

    back to what I am saying. I still connected to 3G/HSPA+ since it got better coverage and my average is always at 8mbps and max 13mbps.
