Mobile Online Gambling Better with 4G Technology

Where ever, whenever, everything, everywhere, is the name of the game in communications around the world. Today’s growing market for telecommunication services is growing like a wild fire and the old system called 3G just doesn’t cut it anymore. The new smart phones have the ability to process huge amounts of information in a split second and people are demanding that it be delivered even faster.

The newest tech wave is coming in the form of 4G also referred to as Long Term Evolution (LTE) and it is the next step in the evolution of mobile network technology. It is built specifically to handle mobile internet and data more efficiently, allowing faster and more reliable mobile connectivity in a world where data usage is increasing 250% year on year.

There are more than 40 countries that have initiated 4G and are already garnering the benefits of faster mobile networks. One can understand why the USA, Japan and Russia are already using 4G but then there are smaller countries such as Kyrgyzstan and Tanzania that see the benefits of the technology. Research into the potential of 4G in the economy of the United Kingdom done by Capital Economics, estimates that the UK's adoption of 4G could unleash £5.5bn of direct private investment. 4G would support 125,000 jobs and ultimately provide a 0.5% boost to GDP of the U.K. Online gamblers could also reap the rewards of 4G with fast games and more play content.

October 30 is the date set in the U.K. when Everything, Everywhere, launches the first-ever mobile 4G network. The U.K. has been slow to implement the technology a full four years behind the first European launch in Sweden. The service is still limbo for another couple of years nationwide with customers in London, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Belfast the first to receive the coverage in time for Christmas. 4G coverage will grow to 70 percent by the end of 2013 before reaching 98 percent by 2014.
