safaricom 4G

could some tech guy explain what’s the advantage of 4g over what we have now?

Safaricom says the LTE Advanced network will offer peak speeds of up to 100Mbps, which is more than twice the speed offered on 3G technology. This makes it possible for customers to download and upload files faster, as well as enjoy buffer-free streaming of audio and video. - See more at:

Faster speeds. The 100mbps is a theoretical figure, in real life, expect it to top 6-mbps if you are lucky.

4g/LTE speeds start at 100mbps…anything below 100 mbps is 3G no matter what name you give it
