Hossein Moiin at Nokia Siemens Networks has made a bold prediction that 4G will be significantly faster by 2020. Claiming speeds will be 100 times faster than they are today, Mooin also claims that the price per gigabyte will be down to $1.
If this holds true, what an outstanding opportunity for everyone in the country to have access to the internet. It is one thing to have high speed internet at home, but to have it on the go is a whole different ball game. The cost of high speed internet at home would surely drop as the demand dropped because of people getting 4G service to replace their at home broadband.
Mooin thinks that like every other technology, the cost will come down and the user’s will eventually see reduced costs for 4G.
