4G will change the way users will look and feel about Internet. It is pretty safe to say that the 4G or LTE is still in it's initial stages of development in India. But, the ultra fast mobile Internet technology could soon become a house hold thing. After all, who wouldn't want speeds of up to 100 megabits per second, it would mean elimination of buffering for videos, seamless multiplayer gaming and super fast downloads.
