In February 1896, Guglielmo Marconi developed the path for operational wireless technology. It all started with the existence of electromagnetic waves predicted by James C. Maxwell in 1860. By 1888, the existence of electromagnetic waves was experimentally proven by Heinrich R. Hertz.
The first experiment was held with a spark-gap transmitter with a receiver 2.4 km away, and it was successful. In the early days, wireless communication was advanced for military use only after various wireless technologies were developed and improved. These technologies were later expanded to broadcasting. With the rise of technological firms, radio broadcasting started in the first half of the 20th century. TV broadcasting was initiated in the second half of the same century.
2019 was the year that 5G cellular networks started to appear. By the end of 2020, 5G was present in around 100 U.S. cities. But presence hasn’t necessarily translated to the same levels of coverage and performance 4G networks currently offer. Coverage in both urban and non-urban areas is just over 30% with some carriers.
If you’ve ever returned a high-ticket item like a TV or video game console, the seller may have charged you a restocking fee. According to Consumer Reports, restocking fees typically represent 15% to 20% of the item’s original purchase price. However, some companies may charge more or less depending upon individual policies.
From smart devices to store loyalty programs, nearly every transaction we complete and interaction we have can be tracked. To make things more complex, it’s not just the companies and organizations we interact with that track our data. Large brokers that collect and re-sell information stay busy gathering data on more than 500 million consumers around the globe.
From conspiracy theories to the possibility of self-driving cars, 5G continues to inspire both controversy and intrigue. While many major U.S. carriers are promoting 5G networks, this doesn’t mean that 4G networks have been or are going to be completely replaced soon. While 5G can deliver faster speeds, fewer delays, and higher capacities, these networks will continue to rely on and run alongside 4G LTE technology.

For the majority of the world’s population, smartphones are a prominent necessity of life. Our everyday life cycles just don’t work without the use of smartphones.
While they are convenient for communication, accessing the Internet, digital media, and entertainment, smartphones can also become inconvenient if not protected in the right ways.
In one of our previous blogs, we covered some of the basics of visual voicemail for smartphones. Visual voicemail lets you look at and listen to your voicemails from an app, rather than having to call from your phone.
One of the conveniences of visual voicemail is that messages from known telemarketers and spam callers can be deleted. You don’t have to suffer through hearing a robocall recording or voice message about an expired car warranty.
This post will explore more of the advantages of visual voicemail, how to set it up on different smartphones, and how to use Viaero’s Vmail.
