Is 2G still relevant?

While 2G systems have been technically surpassed by newer generations of wireless, the system remains quite viable and has a very large user base (~3 billion) in areas around the world where 3G and 4G systems have not been deployed. For this reason, it will continue to be important for several years into the future. Furthermore, all 3G and 4G phones have built-in 2G capability. 2G is included for roaming in 2G-only regions as well as for supporting simultaneous voice and data (voice on 2G with simultaneous data on either 3G or 4G).

Many years out, it is likely that the 2G spectrum will be reformed to support newer generations of wireless services. A current example of this can be seen in Europe and Asia where the existing DCS1800 spectrum is being reallocated for Band 3 FDD-LTE (4G).

What exactly are the improvements that make each new generation?

Generation changes in wireless communications generally have to do with both the data rate and architecture of the system infrastructure. It is safe to say that each new generation enables higher data rates, lower latency and new applications relative to the previous one.

One major change is that 4G systems use a packet infrastructure rather than traditional telephone architecture. Since 4G is relatively new, it will still take time for the full extension of the improvements to present themselves.
