How pCell Works
BusinessInsider.com reports that a massive problem is looming over the wireless tech industry, and one startup has a plan to solve it.
Industry analysts and researchers believe we are running out of wireless spectrum.
Spectrum is the term that refers to the airwaves used to transmit data to and from your devices. So each time you use your phone to check Facebook, send a text, or watch a video while connected to 4G LTE, you are using a bit of spectrum.
The problem, according to some industry experts, is that we are on track to gobble up much more spectrum than ever before because we are using our phones for data-intensive tasks like streaming video. A report published by Nielsen last February showed that 23% of Netflix subscribers streamed content from their phones. That was up from 11% in 2012.
