HSPA+ is the 'next generation' in networks after 3G, carriers needed some way of announcing to consumers that their networks were now faster and better than they used to be, and since there is no way people will understand 'HSPA+' or any technical explanation of the difference between HSPA and HSPA+, just dubbing it '4G' is the only reasonable marketing term to use.
I mean, I suppose that they could run 30 minute infomercials where an engineering professor from MIT could give a lecture laying out in full detail just what the difference between HSPA and HSPA is, but I think that by the time he got the point where he performs the Fourier Analysis very few people would still be watching. Very Happy
