Wireless communication has become an inevitable part of our lives. Since the evolution of patch antennas, there has been rapid growth observed in its application. There are many advantages of wireless communication such as the small size, ease of fabrication and installation, and firm performance. There are several designs that have been developed and presented by researchers over time. In this report, different antenna designs for the 4G network will be presented with their specific features and applications.
