MOBILE VOICE | DATA | APN
Using the internet on your phone should be a speedy, seamless experience. Here are four benefits of using Vodacom’s 4G network. 4G stands for fourth generation, in this case of mobile data technology. It’s sometimes called LTE (Long-Term Evolution) and, for all but a few who’ve experienced the tests of 50, it’s the fastest way to access the internet on the go.
What is APN?
An Access Point Name (APN) is the name of a gateway between a GSM, GPRS, 3G or 4G mobile network and another computer network, frequently the public Internet.
A mobile device making a data connection must be configured with an APN to present to the carrier. The carrier will then examine this identifier to determine what type of network connection should be created, for example: which IP addresses should be assigned to the wireless device, which security methods should be used, and how or if, it should be connected to some private customer network.
