How many Mbps are in 4G?

4G networks are very fast compared to 3G. Standard 4G offers download speeds of around 14 Mbps, which is almost five times faster than what its predecessor, the 3G network, was able to offer.

What is 8G technology?

8G Network is a term used in networking to describe the bandwidth of a connection. In other words, an 8G Network means that the connection has a data transfer rate of up to 8 gigabits per second.

Is MiFi as good as Wi-Fi?

MiFi is not designed to be a long-term solution. It's a lot slower than WiFi. You can also only expect speeds of up to 70Mbps with most 4G WiFi devices. That means that although it works for working and streaming in a pinch, it's not the best for gaming or anything that needs lots of fast data transfer.
