The article focuses on wireless Internet access through Wi-Fi, 3G, and 4G. According to the author, Wi-Fi is a commonly used term for wireless technology that utilizes the IEEE 802.11 standards. 3G is the third generation of the wireless protocol for wireless mobile gadgets that require the simultaneous running of data and voice with a transmission speed of 200 kilobytes per second of transmission. It says that 4G provides very fast gigabit speeds using true Internet Protocol (IP) transmission.
