IEEE's mission is to collect your money. You can't download papers unless you;'re a member of the IEEE society that published it. In my position as an editor, I often need papers outside my membership. That reminds me to get back in the IEEE I&M Society. I dropped it last year when I changed jobs, but now I'm back covering T&M.
With all the open source initiative, I wonder why IEEE hasn't embraced it. At the minimal, I think they should allow member to access any paper older than 1 year old and public to have access of any paper more than 5 years old. Agree?
I thought about that when writing the piece. Sorry, we're not at 100G for mobile devices. In fact, we're actually not yet at 4G. that will come once LTE-A and other technologies are more fully deployed, which the marketers will call 5G. 5G is already on the drawing board, which the marketers will call 6G or 7G.
