Mobile data is Internet content delivered to mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets over a wireless cellular connection.
Cellular providers have offered mobile data through a number of different technologies including GSM (in 1G, 2G, 3G UMTS and 4G LTE Advanced), CDMA and TDMA. Mobile data plans offer varying amounts of data transfer per month for a range of rates. The most expensive plans typically offer unlimited data; the low end may provide less than a gigabyte (GB).
5G represents the latest generation of mobile internet connection, with faster download and upload speeds. It takes advantage of greater use of the radio spectrum to allow more devices to access the mobile internet simultaneously.
