A short G history…

  • 1G (first generation), introduced in the early 1980s, was analogue and voice-only.
  • 2G followed in the 1990s, adding call and text encryption, and basic data services like Short Message Service (SMS) texting, picture messages and Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS).
  • 3G came along in 1998, ushering in a new era of video calling and mobile internet.
  • 4G launched in 2013, supporting higher-speed services, such as HD (high definition) streaming, gaming services and video conferencing.
  • 5G went live on the Vodafone UK network on 3 July 2019, promising game-changing speeds and far greater capacity.
