3G networks slow? But why?

Nowadays, we have in mind that many telephone companies have invested heavily in marketing in an abusive way in this new network topology, which are 3G networks, and briefly in 4G networks, which Anatel has not yet released.
We know why Anatel has not yet released it, because we know that it knows, that operators are cheating, and cheating many.

Come and go, 3G internet in Brazil is a calamity, something that is a joke for 3G networks in Europe. But after all, why are Brazil's 3G networks so inferior to Europe's 3G networks? Well, come the secret:
The analysis was done deeply in Vivo's network, and with studies with its formation and implementation.

Vivo mobile telephony operator works with fiber optics over Brazil, transporting information through its lines throughout the country.
When your network was implemented, every detail of CDMA communication was analyzed, so that 1 million people can make calls simultaneously, without any type of interference or bottleneck in the network.

In other words, Vivo is an operator that thought of everything, that is, when there was no 3G yet.
Calls from Vivo to Vivo do not cost anything to the operator, since their calls are automatically distributed through its fiber optic network, which is installed in hidden bases close to the states closest to the sea.

The transmission line starts in Pará, passing through São Luiz in Maranhão, soon afterwards through Piauí, Ceará, Rio Grande do Norte, and then coming down, towards Bahia, Espírito Santo, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and finally in Paraná .
These cables, thousands of kilometers long, and through them, any connection travels at very high speed, including data.

It turns out, what connections, you can calculate a connection speed with quality, I mean, full-duplex, with about 96 kbps. 4 Mbps for example, would support 50 simultaneous telephone calls with peace of mind. Well, it's already possible to get an idea of ​​the speed of the network, isn't it?
Well, but the story is not quite there, it is not as fast as it seems, it happens that each channel communicates from one end to the other, with speed of only 96 kbps at most, which is the standard to have a good quality on a connection. But you must now be asking yourself, why am I talking about voice over the Internet? Simple, Vivo, even with all its engineering, thought that it would continue to traffic only VOICE in its network. Every GSM and CDMA connection is converted to DATA on these networks. Including SMS messages, MMS, internet connections, among others.
Everything that is done on the cell phone is done through data communication.
And the big problem: Vivo's ISP provider, in other words, is in the north of the country, close to the backbone that connects to Vivo's network, to the internet.

I believe that you already managed to understand me, right? Brazil has a backbone that connects Brazilian networks with the rest of the world at 8 Gbps, which may seem like a lot, imagine everyone connecting to this backbone to watch their youtube videos, passing through a network over 100 thousand kilometers away ? Vivo's network is able to safely transport connections at speeds of 96 kbps, which was stipulated at speed per channel. In certain cases, the network uses several channels to send and receive data, but when the number of customers increases, the channels are limited, making the speed incredibly low, for the current 3G connection, which natively supports 24 Mbps of download and 384 kbps upload.

Is Vivo interested in investing? Well, I believe not, because many customers are no longer customers of vivo every day, if she is investing, it is very little, and if she really invests, it will take a long time for people to believe that she has changed, because she always says that she changed, and it's always the same thing, in the last 10 years.

Do other operators also have this bottleneck on the network? Yes, because most of them always use their exclusive dedicated optical fibers, which were designed for data traffic from VOICE calls.
Are there any hopes yet? Well, TIM made an alliance with a partnership with Intelig. Intelig has a backbone that interconnects its networks, not from the north of the country, but through Paraguay, where labor costs are extremely lower for maintenance, and its backbone interconnects Brazil at a speed of 17 Gbps. Nowadays, the intelligence networks are the most stable networks that exist in Brazil. Claro, got together with Embratel, but when doing speed tests, we see that there are many routes in the middle of the road, the network is wasted in almost 90% in packet routing, which causes the loss of speed mainly in hours peak.

How to improve? Ahem, just follow the example of the big internet operators in Europe, they make networks capable of operating 5000% more than expected, making each user when connecting at 24 mbps, be a joke at the speed of the network, that is why there are countries , in which people no longer buy hard drives, prefer to store their data online, because it is cheaper and faster, in addition to being available anywhere. This is still a fantasy here in Brazil, where our dreams are to have computers with as much HD as possible. I myself here at home work with 2 Tb on disk, and I still find it insufficient, but also, I discarded the use of CDs and DVDs a long time ago.
