1G Analog in 1981
2G Digital transmission in 1992
3G Spread spectrum transmissions (multimedia support) in 2001
Why is it important: The minimum speed requirement set for 4G standard as per International Telecommunications Union-Radio communications (ITU-R):
100 megabits per second (Mbit/s) for high mobility communication (such as from trains and cars)
1 gigabit per second (Gbit/s) for low mobility communication ((such as pedestrians and stationary users)
Now a days cellular provider have stated to deploy 4G technology and new generation smartphones & tablets comes with 4G LTE capability.
