The Biggest Myths About 4G in the Enterprise



4G is becoming the next internet front for consumers and businesses alike. It is faster than 3G internet connectivity and offers several other benefits. However, there are several myths about the use of technologies in the business. Here are some of the biggest myths, along with the truth.
