He said normal, everyday people wouldn't notice a difference between 3G and 4G

Vodafone's CEO referred to 4G connectivity as a feature that only "technofreaks" are worried about.

Vodafone CEO Vittorio Colao discussed how UK digital communications company EE's 4G network has impacted Vodafone's business in the UK during a media conference call earlier this week.


According to Colao, customers wouldn't notice a difference between 3G data speeds using HSPA+ and 4G network speeds -- hence, 4G isn't a necessary network feature.

“I haven’t seen any figures but when I visited an EE store to see how fast it was all I saw was technofreaks in there," said Colao. "I haven’t heard any calls from friends, colleagues of businesses that we need this fast internet. With the increase in data speeds of HSPA+ (a faster version of 3G), an early LTE network won’t be much different.”

Clearly you know nothing of how wireless works. If we were talking traditional broadband, I would agree. You just add more backbones, more servers, more cables switches routers etc etc. But that's not how wireless works, your post is just an ignorant rant.

Sadly we cannot just blast unlimited bandwidth through the airwaves at an exponential rate with the current cellular technology. How you can not know that is just...wow.
