What’s Your G? 3, 4, or 5?

“G” stands for “GENERATION”. While connected to the internet, the speed of the connection depends upon the signal strength that is shown in abbreviations like 3G, 4G, 5G, etc. on any mobile device. Each generation of wireless broadband is defined as a set of telephone network standards that describe the technical implementation of the system.

If your sign is operating on a 3G router you need to begin reviewing upgrade options for your digital sign.

3G is phasing out.  If your sign is operating on a 3G router you need to begin reviewing upgrade options for your digital sign.  Many networks have plans to retire 3G technology before the end of 2022.  4G is a rock-solid technology that is still being developed.  4G is the perfect technology for outdoor digital signs.  With increasing speeds and future software applications, 5G will become more appealing.  But until that day comes you can feel comfortable with the 4G technology that NextLED provides with every digital sign sold in the United States.  4G technology is not scheduled to phase out until after 2030.

Distance Matters

Did you know that a 4G signal can cover up to 10 miles? 5G brings the power with amazing signal and transfer speeds but it doesn’t work much past a half-mile. 4G and 5G work well together for a variety of uses and your project requirements should dictate your choice in service.

Less than 2% of digital signs in America are not found under the Verizon signal.

Wireless antenna devices mounted to your building are frustrating, complicated, and ultimately not worth the savings.  More reliable equipment, utilizing the NextLED secured network, and remote diagnostics provide an amazing amount of value to the customer.  See if your next sign purchase will be covered by our Verizon network.
