Making the Switch to a 4G Phone

4G is the latest emerging technology in India. It is the future of mobile internet. This is why, many handset manufacturers are rolling out new phones that support 4G.

4G Phones

iPhone 5S and 6, Sony Xperia Z5 and M5, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and LG G2 are just a few of the top level phones that support 4G. Most of these phones are Long-Term Evolution (LTE) enabled.

Internationally, LTE and LTE Advance support some frequency bands for smooth operation. These are Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) or Time Division Duplex (TDD). Most of the Indian phones are designed keeping this in mind. In FDD, the regulating authority of the country gives paired frequency band to operators, while this is absent in TDD. In India, most of the allocation of 4G TDD - LTE is done in the spectrum bands of 2300 MHz to 2400 MHz.

LTE mobile phones have another interesting capability, which is that of Multi Input- Multi Output (MIMO). LG G2 is one of the phones that supports MIMO. This feature is optional in Category 1 handsets, but necessary in Category 5 handsets. A MIMO device is great for many users, as these features allow it to download a video faster than any other device. It gives a throughput of over 100 Mbps in Downlink.
Before investing in a phone, check the details on the manufacturer’s webpage. Check the bands supported by any LTE-enabled handset. Understand the specifications and opt for the most suitable device.
At present, telecom operators do not offer efficient 4G services that will make your expensive phones worth the purchase, but this will soon change. To make it more worthwhile right now, operators should also give packages to attract high-end mobile phone buyers. Operators are yet to understand the potential for this target audience.
Tikona’s 4G
Tikona DigitalNetworks is one of the leading broadband internet providers in the country. The company is known for its efficient service and customer-centric focus. Experts have high expectations from the upcoming Tikona 4G launch, scheduled sometime this year.
Tikona will provide complete coverage in 30 cities, within its five telecom circles via its 4G service. The company will offer 5 to 10 times higher speeds at just 20% of the price of current internet services in the market. Its pilot project in Varanasi offers a speed of 10 Mbps.

It is important that you choose the right operator along with the right phone. A high-end handset alone will not guarantee a good experience, as you also need a superior service provider. Opt for Tikona services and get the best experience. You Tikona reviews posted by users make its reputation for quality apparent enough.
