4G for mobile phones now available in Iceland

The telecommunications company Nova now offers 4G service for mobile phones, the first Icelandic company to do so. The service became available yesterday, Thursday. The 4G service is 10 times faster than the traditional 3G connection, and 3 times as fast as an average ADSL connection.

"The first 4G phone that Nova emphasizes on is the Samsung S4 but soon the selection of 4G phones will increase and the development will be similar to when we went from GSM to 3G phones" says Liv Bergþorsdottir, CEO of Nova, in a press announcement that the company gave out this morning.

The 4G service has been well accepted abroad and internet usage through mobile phones is continually increasing along with the speed. "Now people not only read their mail and the news on the phone, they send pictures and videos from the phone" added Liv.

The 4G mobile service costs the same as the 3G mobile service at Nova. In the press announcement it says that the 4G service will be available for iPhone later this year, but it is up to Apple when that happens.
