Verizon wireless updating
If you don't have a strong connection to Wi-Fi or the Verizon Wireless network, you may not be able to perform a software update over the air.
Instead, you can connect your device to a computer with Internet access.
Do not disconnect the device from the computer during the repair process.
The Windows and Mac process is virtualy the same; however, there may be some very slight variations.
Since the first-release versions of Mobile Wi MAX and LTE support much less than 1 Gbit/s peak bit rate, they are not fully IMT-Advanced compliant, but are often branded 4G by service providers.
The peak bit rate is further improved by smart antenna arrays for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communications.
In the field of mobile communications, a "generation" generally refers to a change in the fundamental nature of the service, non-backwards-compatible transmission technology, higher peak bit rates, new frequency bands, wider channel frequency bandwidth in Hertz, and higher capacity for many simultaneous data transfers (higher system spectral efficiency in bit/second/Hertz/site).
