4G Coverage in the USA

What, may you ask, is 4G?

Basically, it’s the fourth generation of mobile telecommunications networks, superseding 3G. What’s so handy about it is the fact that it is more reliable for wifi devices (cellphones, laptops etc.) that use mobile broadband services. It’s roughly five times faster than 3G internet.

Another term connected to 4G is LTE; this is abbreviated for Long Term Evolution and is a very technical process concerning high speed mobile data.

The only downside is that not all smartphones are able to connect to it; if you haven’t made the transition to a newer model of Samsung, iPhone or similar smartphone, this service might not be available to you.

How to pick a great restaurant while travelling

Choosing a restaurant when travelling can be daunting, you don’t want to be spending your travel time (and money) on poor experiences. There are a variety of apps that provide great reviews on restaurants. Try these when travelling around the USA.

While traveling in the USA, Yelp has a good website and apps are available for iOS and Android. Or you could try OpenTable – it’s a great way to get the opinions of the locals when choosing a restaurant or other venues.  We’ve found them very reliable (look for a high number of reviews and stars). OpenTable also lets you makes reservations online.  TripAdvisor is also an excellent source but Yelp and OpenTable are used by the locals.

The trick when using these type of apps is to try gauge the quality of the reviewers and look for restaurants that respond to reviews, it shows they care.
