3G is a wireless industry term for a collection of international standards and technologies aimed at increasing efficiency and improving the performance of mobile wireless networks resulting in high speed access to data which will make mobile phones much more versatile.
The name for the third-generation mobile telephone standard in Europe is Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS). For the businessman, in addition to dictating over a mobile phone or sending text messages, he will be able to send high-quality video clips and photographs (built-in cameras are well over a megapixel now). Videoconferencing is an obvious and very important application.
You can imagine what sort of shows these will be, bearing in mind television companiesí obsession for appealing to youth audiences- think Big Brother!
Paying bills over a secure link will be possible. You will be able to call up a moving street map of your location, so you need never be lost again. Once UMTS is fully implemented, computer and phone users can be constantly attached to the Internet as they travel and have the same set of capabilities no matter where they travel to.
Users will have access through a combination of terrestrial wireless and satellite transmissions.
