Cellular data connectivity has been evolving rapidly over the past decade, with an entire alphabet soup of technical standards and protocols behind the scenes pushing more bits faster with each new generation. It is more than most mortals should need to worry about, but if you're curious as to the evolution of cellular, this is the guide for you.
Included in this Guide:
- Where We've Been
- The Future
Pardon our Dust!
We are working on re-writting the 5th Edition of The Mobile Internet Handbook - due out early 2018.
This edition of the book will be going back to the basics - the original 'handbook' intentions. Technology is changing so often, that keeping some of our resources in a book format just no longer makes sense. So we are working on bringing over more advanced chapters of the book as online guides that will become part of our Mobile Internet University.
As always, our content will have a mix of free/public and member exclusive content.
We anticipate these new guides will be ready around the same time we're aiming to launch the new Book (early 2018).
