3G stands for third generation wireless telephone technology. It is based on an International Telecommunication Union (ITU) initiative for a single global wireless standard called International Mobile Telecommunications-2000 (IMT-2000). This concept of a single standard evolved into a family of five 3G wireless standards; and in late 2007, a sixth 3G standard was included. Of those six, the most widely adopted are CDMA2000® and WCDMA (UMTS). According to the ITU, a wireless standard must meet minimum speed requirements to be considered 3G and 3G technologies must provide high-speed Internet broadband data access comparable to a Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) and/or a cable modem in a mobile setting.
3G enhances the service experience such as high speed mobile broadband, internet access, video streaming and much more on your mobile phone. With a 3G phone and access to the 3G network you can make video calls, watch live TV and access the high speed internet.
