We notify you free of charge about new tests on the topic of: 3G Mobile Phones. Your e-mail address:

3G mobile phones use the third generation UMTS network to send more data and operate at faster speeds than previous phones were capable of.

This increased bandwidth allows owners of a 3G phone to not only make and receive voice calls, but also take part in two-way video conferencing and to view and download video and audio from the internet or specially designed television stations.

The data rate of 3G is around 384kbps which is faster than some basic fixed line broadband packages. Speeds of up to 2Mbps are also promised which, due to the fact that a stipulation of the contract for 3G networks stated that there had to be 80% coverage of the UK by 2007, gives the owner of a 3G mobile phone broadband equivalent internet access speeds from anywhere in the country.

However 3G phones did not take off as anticipated but the technology will continue to advance. In Japan work on 3.5G has begun which will offer users downlink speeds of up to 3Mbps.

The main 3G operator in the UK is 3, this is a global network which operates in five countries on 3G UMTS networks but also has agreements with 2G network operators to use their infrastructure as a fallback in cases of low coverage or signal loss, providing an important backup for customers when leaving the big cities most will be based in.

If you would like to use video calls from a mobile or are interested in downloading web content then a 3G mobile is the smallest device supporting all of these functions and to be thoroughly recommended.
