Re: No 4G?

Re: No 4G?
LOL @theBulk That reminds me of an incident a year or two back. A local supermarket's intenret/phone connection went down. Rather than turn away credit card customers, (which would have cost them quite a bit of business) they dug out those old machines and forms.

Re: No 4G?
Maybe in a few years they will begin to accept credit cards, and they will use one of those slide contraptions with the carbon duplicat paper.

Re: No 4G?
@theBulk I was completely flabbergasted that they would request that. I can't even remember when was the last time before this that I purchased a money order. I would guess it was in the last century!

Re: No 4G?
@Ariella, ok, I didnt see that coming, not at all. Wow! I didn't even know money orders were still a thing. I don't expet to be able to pay with bitcoin or anything, but they should at least take credit cards or some othe form of transfer.

Re: No 4G?
@thebulk what blows my mind is seeing organizations still use 20th Century steps even when they are on the internet. For example, the City University of New York that allows online applicatons still depends a great deal on paper and requires that the fee for registration be paid in the form of a money order! Never mind that they won't take electronic payments online or credit card payments, they don't even allow checks! Money orders are generally for people who don't keep bank accounts, and who expects them today in an age of electronic and mobile payments?

Re: No 4G?
@Ariella, I have never understood when companies build roadmaps with outdated technology, it just blows my mind.

Re: No 4G?
@Bulk good point. It's wasteful to set up something you know will be obsolete in a very short period of time.

Re: No 4G?
So far out, I would think 5G would be more than viable by then, so why waste time and money with a step to 4G just wait it out and push 5G

Re: No 4G?
Well thats debateable. telcos with 4G spectrum (Reliance Jio, Tikona) havent launched services in spite of the fact that they got spectrum in 2010. Airtel is the only one which has launched in a few circles but the response is hardly encouraging. I suspect Vodafone is maximising its returns from 3G before moving to 4G. Idea Cellular also plans to launch 4G services on 1800 Mhz but only in 2017.
