Re: Please stop.
The same reason you don't call HSPA+ '3.5G'...because it's not easy for people to remember....
The G's were never really an indication of any kind of standard, 2G, 3G, 4G etc they are not really terms with a clear, defined meaning...they are really just marketing terms....a way of saying 'our network is better now than it used to be'...
There was an attempt to CREATE a standard for 4G, but that effort went nowhere and was ignored by pretty much every one....so they wisely dropped it...because after all a standard which is ignored and followed by no one is not really a standard, is it?
