    Do you know what is 2g Spectrum?

    What is 2G spectrum?



    2G (or 2-G) is short for second-generation wireless telephone technology. Second generation 2G cellular telecom networks were commercially launched on the GSM standard in Finland by Radiolinja (now part of Elisa Oyj) in 1991. Three primary benefits of 2G networks over their predecessors were that phone conversations were digitally encrypted; 2G systems were significantly more efficient on the spectrum allowing for far greater mobile phone penetration levels; and 2G introduced data services for mobile, starting with SMS text messages.

    Recently 3g networking is also launched. This is much better than the existing 2g one. When this 3g networks will totally be activated in bengal? This will be very easy and helpful for communication too as it will provide the video calling facility and much more facilitites like surfing the internet and gps navigation etc
