H+ is an enhanced HSPA version. It is faster than H. H+ can download and stream the video very smoothly. H+ is the quickest experience available in most parts of the world with 4G technology, but availability is limited due to a lack of in-network coverage.
WCDMA is also a 3G technology. The stand is Wide-band Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA). This technology is used in GSM systems. WCDMA, which is used in GSM to increase the speed of data transmission by using the Air interface of CDMA
4G is the 4th generation of mobile internet technology. 500 times faster than 3G. Smartphone has HD TV support as a result of 4G. It can also receive high-quality video calls.
It also too slow when compared to 5G browsing speed.
By 2020, there are over 20 billion devices connected to the Internet. 4G, no matter how fast, will not satisfy this need. That’s why the scientist had to think of a quicker technology than 4G. As a result, they introduced the 5G technology. 5G is the latest Mobile phone Internet technology
Believe it or not, the speed of 5G is about 100 times as much as 4G. Despite this, 4G or H+ is not available worldwide.
