NEW: The Future of Smart Phones of 2018


Net neutrality law refers to laws and regulations which enforce the principle of net neutrality. … On 10 November 2014, President Obama recommended the FCC reclassify broadband Internet service as a telecommunications service in order to preserve net neutrality.

Those in favor of Net Neutrality want the government to require those companies that transmit content on the internet backbone providers to treat all content and customers equally, and to not prioritize the content or speed of their own associated products or services or partners over those who are not associated with the providers.

Now that the FCC has repealed the version of Net Neutrality under the Obama administration, a lot of people are scrambling around wondering what will be the impact of the law on wireless providers and smartphones.

The mobile phone service providers say limited bandwidth and technology require them to adjust speed for efficiency purposes. It is true, actually. Wireless bandwidth refers to the speed of data transfer between electronic devices capable of communicating wirelessly, using radio-frequency signals. Several factors could impact, limit, or reduce, bandwidth so that wireless connections become slower and less reliable than users might expect. Technology, physical obstruction like trees and tunnels, distance and radio interference all work to constrain the quality of wireless service.

Knowing that, it becomes clear that in the future, new demands, options, and products will but how will the changes in the law and new 4G demand converge to impact the market?


It would certainly affect new technology like Augmented Reality or AR which combines computer data with what we see in real life to provide enhanced computer-generated sensory. For AR to work seamlessly and reliably, the technology for recognizing places, things or people must be of a certain standard. With things up in the air over the regulatory environment, it is uncertain how policy and AR will intersect.

Also, the future is in flexible screens that can serve as in-built projectors that can up to 50 inches in size at 15 lumens. They are great for interactive gaming consoles, eliminating the need for a television screen. All you would need would be a flat surface. Instead of a physical controller, you can use your body or your voice. People would be able to use it for movie nights; fans of Vegas can skip the trip and have a game night where they play online games like Roulette and the like from their home across the way.  But for these exciting interactions to occur there must be more communication between things, hence the Internet of Things. These increased interactions which mundane options will further tax the available bandwidth.
