Without International Mobile Telecommunications-2000, or 3G as we know it, the current state of mobile computing would be vastly different. 3G brought with it the ability to simultaneously talk on the phone while surfing the web or sending a text message. It also allowed people to surf the web at a much faster speed than they were used to. Although 4G is expected to take off within the next year or two, it was 3G that showed us that we can surf the web wherever the hell we pleased.
