As always, when making assessments about wireless technologies you need to remember the two golden rules...


Signal strength and reliability.

No matter how fast a wireless connection might be, its value will ultimately depend on the bandwidth available. Fifty people on a fat pipe might be happy people, a hundred people on the same pipe will each be half as happy. The same applies to signals - what's the use of paying for a blindingly fast wireless connection if you can't get a signal because your house is next to a hay barn?

Provided your 4G network gives you access to enough bandwidth, and your signal strength is good and reliable, the answer to your question is probably going to be yes, but let's wait to see how the roll-outs go, and what costs to consumers will be.
