Fortune magazine touches on Cellphone Gridlock

Fortune Magazine’s Scott Cendrowski has jumped on the bandwagon to touch on the issue of cellphone gridlock over the 3G and 4G networks.  What’s the solution, according to Fortune?  Like many have already said, offloading data to Wi-Fi networks is the answer (Cell-Fi).  Fortune’s Cendrowski,  goes on topraise the Wi-Fi networks as “cheaper to operate and can be 10 times faster than 3G” (a thing we in The Wi-Fi Revolution love to hear).

We know the solution, but what is the actual problem?  According to Fortune, the 3 and 4G networks were simply not designed for this type of traffic.  One smartphone user can generate the traffic of 30 cellphone users and when you have tens of thousands of people utilizing the same network and generating data traffic (through surfing, video, etc.) you get: gridlock. Fortune also mentions the large of amounts of people who use their cellphones and smartphones at home, at work, sitting at their desks – these networks were designed as an “on the go” service.  Now cellphone and smartphone use is the standard and many people forgo the landlines altogether (I know I do).

Learn more about Cell-Fi.  We will be posting a video shortly that shows you how to access the Wi-Fi network from you smartphone for less dropped calls, faster data transfer and less cost.  Stay tuned….
