They told me, "You're TechnicalJones, What's the deal?"  :-)

Ok, here's the deal!  Hope it makes your day!  :-)

LJJ_TechTerms_3.JPGDefinition:  3G refers to the third generation of developments in wireless technology, especially mobile communications.

The third generation, as its name suggests, follows the first generation (1G) and second generation (2G) in wireless communications.

3G includes capabilities and features such as:

1.  Enhanced multimedia (voice, data, video, and remote control);

2.  Usability on all popular modes (cellular telephone, e-mail, paging, fax,     videoconferencing, and Web browsing).

3.  Broad bandwidth and high speed (upwards of 2 Mbps).

4.  Roaming capability throughout Europe, Japan, and North America.

While 3G is generally considered applicable mainly to mobile wireless, it is also relevant to fixed wireless and portable wireless.

3G offers the potential to keep people connected at all times and in all places.
