Several years ago, when I started working in the industry, I had my first week's induction and soon learnt that there are thousands of acronyms that we use on a daily basis. A few years later and I am still learning new ones all the time.
I have also realised that a lot of the time we assume that people understand us when we are talking in telco jargon, which is not always the case. I recently wrote an article on Leased Lines and a LinkedIn member's comment made me have a think about this. How many people do actually understand all of these acronyms and jargon and what does it all mean? Wouldn't it be easier if we had a Acronym Jargon Buster for quick reference...?
So, I am pleased to announce the introduction of the 2 Circles Jargon Buster, available on our website using the following link:
1080p Mobile This is a full-HD display, with a higher pixel density to give you sharper and clearer images. 2G Mobile Second generation mobile network known as GSM. Simply put, 2G allows you to send text messages. 3.5G Mobile Also known as HSDPA (High Speed Data Packet Access), 3.5G provides faster data rates than 3G. 3G Mobile The third generation of mobile phone technology, offering better coverage for voice calls and text messaging, as well as providing faster access to the internet. 4G Mobile The fourth generation of mobile phone technology. With 4G, using the internet on your phone is even quicker, with speeds 5-7 times faster than 3G. If you have a 4G ready phone, but you’re not in a 4G area, you’ll still be able to use 3G.
