Costa Rica: 4G Starts Testing in July

Starting in July, thanks to a pilot program, hundreds of Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) users will be able to evaluate the performance and benefits of the 4G cellular network.

iPhone5-CTeófilo de la Torre, president of the state telecom, made the announcment on Thursday, saying that a number of ICE selected customers will enjoy the network that will be launched in full service before the end of the year

De la Torre said that users will be chosen according to things: their constant use of mobile internet and availability to provide ICE feedback on the service.

Once the evaluation program is over, ICE technicians will be making the necessary technical adjustments before the commercial launch of the service.

In telecommunications, 4G is the fourth generation of mobile phone mobile communication technology standards. It is a successor of the third generation (3G) standards.

A 4G system provides mobile ultra-broadband Internet access, for example to laptops with USB wireless modems, to smartphones, and to other mobile devices.  Conceivable applications include amended mobile web access, IP telephony, gaming services, high-definition mobile TV, video conferencing, 3D television and Cloud Computing.

Is a 4G phone (like the iPhone 4) a4G?
It’s becoming increasingly common to hear phone makers and mobile phone service providers hype their networks or phones as 4G (or sometimes 4G LTE). But what does that really mean? The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S are sometimes referred to as the iPhone 4G, but does that mean that the iPhone 4 is a 4G phone?

The short answer is no. Cellular phones like the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S are not 4G phones. At least they’re not when by saying “4G” you mean the 4G or 4G LTE cellular network standard (the successor to the 3G standard used by the iPhone 4 & 4S) that most phone companies are referring when they say 4G. To understand the confusion, though, requires understanding what people mean when they say something is 4G. The confusion happens because there are two different meanings for the term 4G.
