US 3G no longer means "850/1900/2100". It now includes 1700.

If they say "US 3G", then they shouldn't just be speaking about one of our two WCDMA carriers.

US 3G has been industry shorthand for "850/1900" since 2005. At that time there was 1 carrier (Cingular/AT&T) with UMTS 3G, and since 2006 (I believe), Rogers has had 3G as well.

The AWS 3G band has been active about a year, with nowhere near the coverage or customer base (considering there is one UMTS 1700 carrier). Eventually, the phrase "US 3G" may include 1700, but realistically, by that time 4G will be up & running.
