Cell Phones and Connections Faster than Lightning

People in the wireless industry have been talking about what will replace 3G networks in the next two or three years. AT&T,Verizon,Sprint and their peers overseas need something to spark consumer demand now that many people already own handsets and higher-end smartphones.Most of the 3G networks run about as fast as a DSL line. That works fine for transferring modest data files, talking, texting, going online, and even watching video. But, the phone companies don't seem to think consumers and business users will be satisfied by the way their networks operate now. Their next generation of technology will be about ten times faster than the one in the market today.
