Lol good point. But lets not forget about AT&T.... They are calling their 7.2 mbps HSPA+ a "4g" network, and on top of that they started doing it right before they plan to launch LTE. What are they going to tell their customers that are upgrading today to "4g phones" in 6-8 months when they launch LTE and those 4g phones that they just bought are completely obsolete? At least T-Mobile is sticking with HSPA+ for a "couple years" since a contract happens to last "a couple years" that seems like it will work out much better.

IMHO AT&T comes out of this looking way worse than T-Mobile. I don't think it was a good idea to call their 14.4mbps HSPA+ "4g". But AT&T's 7.2mbps is even farther from it, seriously AT&T couldn't wait a few more months to jump on the 4G band wagon?
