What were the typical data transfer speeds using some of these systems?

What about CDMA and other US standards? [1] Fritz Jörn (talk) 19:59, 4 November 2009 (UTC)--

this is completely made up, this was never referred to as 1G. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:34, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Of course it wasn't. The name was given to this technology well after future versions were implemented. Just like World War I was simply called "World War" before there was a second. -D14BL0 (talk) 07:04, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Here's my issue:

:"The main difference between two succeeding mobile telephone systems, 1G and 2G, is that the radio signals that 1G networks use are analog, while 2G networks are digital."[edit]

Technically, they are BOTH analog from the standpoint of transmission and reception. It's the interpretation and content of the modulation which determines analog vs. digital.

As such, there is no such thing as an RF digital signal. To transmit anything approximating such a signal would totally be illegal as it's bandwidth would blow away all FCC regulations and destroy all nearby frequencies.

Lesson: All RF is ANALOG. You cannot transmit zeros and ones as such! Impossible. It's the content or modulation which CARRIES digitally INTERPRETED data! I'd tear up this article but it's a lame stub to begin with and has numerous flaws. I don't have the patience to fix it...
