4G LTE – Does Your Small Business Need It?

Yes, the old adage that time is money is true everyday for a business of any size.  Often you have to think about a tradeoff between time and money when considering how you’ll deliver your product or service.  So what exactly is 4G LTE and where does it fit in?

 

The term is simply shorthand for the 4th generation of wireless broadband networks and, in the case of Verizon, it’s the fastest, most advanced 4G wireless broadband network currently available from any carrier.  Mobility continues to be a key part of most of our lives and, for businesses, it’s a must.  4G brings you download speeds of 5-12 Mbps and upload speeds of 2- 5 Mbps.  This is a substantial increase over current network speeds. With 4G you’ll get speeds up to 10x faster than 3G.  Some other 4G providers consider 1.5 Mbps downloads their top speed.

 

What exactly does this mean for you?  Well, basically, Verizon’s 4G can connect you at speeds that are faster than typical DSL or cable modem high-speed internet options and, of course, you can take it with you.  In addition, the real ‘up’ side to this is the upload speeds that can go as fast as 5 Mpbs!  If you’ve got files to share or have to connect for meetings over the Internet, this is a real timesaver.

 

Verizon 4G LTE may be part of the solution for your business – the more you travel, having a reliable, fast Internet connection can help you keep that edge on the competition.  Today, there are 38 major cities with the fastest 4G service available. Watch for more to be added this year.
