Shrinking Phone Sizes, Expanding Mobile Networks

From brick-sized mobile telephones to sleek sized smartphones, mobile sizes have shrunk immensely. In contrast, mobile networks have leapfrogged in improvement. When we talk about mobile networks, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Data packages? Telecommunication companies?

A mobile network is distributed over land areas called ‘cells’, and each served by at least one fixed-location transceiver. These base stations provide the cells with network coverage to transmit voice, data and other types of content accessed on our smartphone devices in the form of radio waves. A mobile user must be within the range of base stations to utilise 4G services; therefore, it is important to select a mobile carrier that offers you wide network coverage.

1G, 2G, 3G and 4G are examples of mobile networks. First of all, the ‘G’ in these mobile networks stand for ‘generation’. Like how smartphone models used numbers to represent how the current model surpasses the previous model, mobile networks do that. The greater the number, the more advanced version it is.

The Past, Present and Future

2009 is the year when the Long-term Evolution (LTE) 4G standard was first released and commercially deployed in Europe. With a theoretical upper capacity of 200Mbps, this network generation made high-quality streaming possible. Mobile devices need to have the capability to support 4G before you can leverage the network, unlike 3G devices that involve only changing SIM cards. The 4G era is also an innovative, new chapter in mobile network advancement. It provides mobile web access capabilities, IP telephony, gaming services, high-definition mobile TV, video conferencing, and 3D television.

Malaysia is currently in the 4G era, the fourth generation of broadband cellular network technology. As we adapt to the ‘new normal’ of home-bound arrangements and working-from-home, Malaysia’s internet traffic has increased by 30% to 70%. Still, internet speed has dropped by 30% to 40%. The government is engaged in expanding 4G mobile coverage from 91.8% to 96.9% in populated areas by optimising existing infrastructure for mobile and fixed connectivity.

Apart from the air we breathe, the food we eat and the house we live in, telecommunication and instant connectivity are becoming an inextricable part of our everyday lives. When faced with so many phone plan options in the market, how do you choose the best one?
