Confused with H and H+ on your Android device
It was so good in the old days when you had just one network to get connected to, to access the web. Since there is so much progress in technology and speeds, different network providers have also increased their speed limits. There are hundreds of people who are confused now as to which network they are connected to. They are actually using 3G and they think that they are using 2G in some cases. Now, when it comes to Android, there has been a lot of improvement and advancement. What you got to do now is get some things clear.
