If someone asks me to name one thing which has revolutionized 21st century, my answer would be internet. Yes, what started as a military exercise has today brought a paradigm shift in the way we all lead our lives. Internet has brought that revolution which we had not even imagined few decades. With advent of technology and support of internet, today people across the world are hooked together. Separated across boundaries, living in different continents , internet is the one which has brought all the people together.
India has not been untouched by this revolution. I still remember my first encounter cum experience of surfing net. It was the time when internet was available as dial-in through telephone connection and would takes ages to load a single html page. But we never minded the enormous time it took. But as the time progress and technology became more advanced we could see that we started getting faster internet speed- from few kbps to mbps now.
The second phase of this internet revolution started when internet was introduced in our handsets. More smartphones were launched in the market which had this facility of using internet.
Sooner 2G was introduced and we were excited to surf on the phone. Its human tendency to crave for something better and faster with each passing day. We demanded more speed and 3G was introduced. Suddenly what took ages to download could now be done within couple of minutes. Suddenly browsing, downloading music & videos etc. become so cool. We got used to it. But as our lives got busier we are having less patience. After all time is money. What we did in minutes now we require to do in seconds.
To cater this need we have 4G. The best part is that it is being offered by none other than AirTel, which is market leader in terms of quality of service and technology is concerned.
Once 4G is in place I have various plans to use this:
- Download music videos : I am big fan of music videos and I will used 4G speed to download my favourite videos
- Download music: My one of the hobbies is to download songs. With 4G network, I will download the song on the fly.
- Stream videos: The most frustrating part so far has been that I need buffer video etc. on YouTube to watch it. It kills my interest and tests my patience. Now with an electrifying speed I will be able to stream any video and watch it on the go.
- Live stream matches: I am a big fan of cricket match. But my busy schedule and office doesnt give me the luxury of watching the match through cable on TV. But with 4G speed I can live stream the match on my smartphone and watch is live, even in office. Especially when I am in boring meetings.
- Download videos on WhatsApp : With 4g speed I will download videos, pics etc. at high speed which takes ages to download
- Play online game: With great speed of 4G I will play HD online games with my friends.
- Hotspot: I will create hotspot in my home or anywhere I like with great ease since I will be having great speed of 4G.
